Our trip from Norman, OK to the Aux Arc COE just south of Ozark, AR covered 226 miles, almost all of it on I-40, taking a little over four hours. The road has improved since our last time over it but still has many, many sections that can use a good deal of improvement. The scenery was much the same as last few trips though it was a little more wooded and less farming.

As mentioned, we are staying at the Aux Arc COE on the Arkansas River. We have a large 30 amp back-in with water and a dump on the way out. Verizon is strong but we were forced to use the portable dish to get to the satellites. Our site is near the entry to campground and can still get through the trees for DirecTV but farther around the curve and you cannot shoot along the road to get the satellites. There are some sites at the very end (very low B numbers) that will also be able to get through.

We didn't do much but relax and watch lots of football and there was some really good games on.

Tomorrow, we will complete the trip across Arkansas and stay at the Tom Sawyer RV Park on the Mississippi River just below West Memphis.
