We nearly made it across Arkansas. Parking in Wally-Mart in Arkansas was not an option, at least not along the I-40. All the Marts we checked out didn't want big rigs to stay overnight. Some of the real rest areas even said: 2 hours parking only! Others were too cramped or very uneven. Nothing compared to the wide open spaces we know from the West.

There are two spots which are recommendable. A rest area near mm 33, Ozark and near mm 235, Palestine, areas we already checked out last year. Nice spots with lots of oak trees and (for Molly) squirrels.

"Overnight camping only" the sign said. That's fine with us.
Today we had beef stew on rice. The original idea was to have the beef ribs grilled, but the "chef de grille" did go on strike: it rained = no grill.
Luckily I did the stew last night, it only needed to be heated up again for today's dinner.

Tomorrow we have a marathon day ahead. No overnight stays allowed on Tennessee's rest areas and truck stops usually are too noisy.
The beef stew looks pretty good for this cooler weather.ReplyDelete
