John & Brenda's Excellent Tour travel blog

May 16

After our stormy evening, the nice weather is back to stay. Our planned drive today was from Hot Springs to Shreveport, Louisiana via Texarkana. We had a beautiful drive through state park areas onto I-40, much like the area around Green Lake and the Cariboo. I-40 took us by Hope, Arkansas, Bill Clinton's birthplace, which also had a big sign declaring that fact. I can hardly wait until Washington, D.C....will they have a sign that says "This is where Bill Clinton had his ---- ----ed"?

Following the highway directional signs, I found the route south to Shreveport; the bad news was that I completely missed driving in to Texarkana by this route, which was disappointing. We continued down a country highway where we passed a side road leading to Plain Dealing, Louisiana...I know there is a story there. We had smooth sailing into Shreveport and easily found our motel about 6 miles south of town.

We finally had some luck finding decent wine and settled in for a peaceful night. This is where we found out that Melinda got voted off American Idol....can you believe it!?
