Well, we left Heber Springs on what was supposed to be a shorter drive of around 160 miles. We drove along a nice county road through some pretty countryside. After all the rain we had this past week, everything was green and beautiful. And it was all good for about 35-40 miles when we had to unhook the Jeep, turn around, hook the Jeep back up and backtrack because our chosen path was closed due to flooding! So our short day turned into a rather long one due to the extra 70-80 miles we had to drive! On our new route over to I-55 in West...

Hello ya'll We are finally on our way to South Dakota! We started out this moring early. And those of ya'll who know Gary know that he is NOT human until after several large coffee's.

Today we woke up and Gayle's aunt Vickie made us a true southern breakfast - imagine our surprise to find a 1-pound pork loin on the table (which she instructed Jenn to divide into 4 parts - and she was thinking we'd each have a little slice...) - in addition, we had eggs with cheese, bagels, fruit salad and potatoes along with homemade strawberry juice. Needless to say we didn't need lunch! It was fantastic, and her aunt's hospitality was simply over-the-top! On our way to the highway, we opted to make a quick stop for pedicures. We've...
