|People in Arkansas are too nuts about Harleys. This was the maid's cart at the Ozark Inn.|
|This was in the parking lot as I rode out for the day. Yessir, that's a tree that nearly sliced that Dodge Ram in half. Tornadoes, no Bullshit from Mother Nature.|
Approximately halfway to my goal I did get a brief respite from the sun and the climbing where I found myself coasting rapidly down the roadway completely engulfed in a tunnel of green foliage. I must have coasted at over 20mph for over 2 miles. It seemed almost like a video game and while it was impossible to photograph at the time I do wish I could have shown someone what that little part of my ride looked like. It was like having the forest turn the air conditioning on for a few minutes and telling me to put my feet up for a sec.
Here's the map from the ride that I uploaded to the MapMyRIDE page for this little segment of my trip.
It was great to finally get to the festival site because it finally felt like I had gotten somewhere with all of the riding. As I've already stated, I didn't stay at Wakarusa very long but I did ride there all the way from Mobile, AL which was well over 600 miles total. While I didn't enjoy the music festival very much I really did have a good time riding my bike all that way. I'm sure I will go on many more long trips like this one, but in the future I will leave out the bullshit.
