Memphis, Tn to Hot Springs, Ar - 195 miles
Waved Memphis goodbye early this morning and crossed the mighty Mississippi immediately entering Arkansas - a state I have to go through to get to OK. Flat, flat and flat .. Yawn but then into the back roads into Hot Springs , remembering when Keith Richards drove through the Bible Belt, pulled into 4-Dice Restaurant in Fordyce just down the road to create history.
Me again ...Mmm sitting on a southern terrace on a swinging chair listening to great Zac Brown Band which is good for here .
I explored Hot Springs where Clinton was educated and home to the beautiful historic bath houses, some still in use not having changed in a 100 years - great! It does feel a bit run down and besides taking a boat onto the nearby lake and seeing the places where the gangsters stayed n gambled back in the old days, I'm already looking at my map and planning the next leg of the trip into Oklahoma.
