We roared away continuing our trip eastward on US64. We came upon a turtle in the road and rescued him, hoping that would bring good karma for the rest of the day.
We crossed into Arkansas at Fort Smith behind 2 large farm tractors that blocked the whole bridge. Finding our way through Fort Smith was not much of a challenge even if there were no signs. We headed south out of town on AR71. We moved into a farming area with rice, corn, soybeans, cotton and grain everywhere.
In the big city of Waldron we pulled in for a cup of coffee at the Rock Cafe. It has been there since 1936 and so has everything in it and the resident coffee drinker at the outside table.
We passed the "Hugs and Biscuits" and had a to make a u-turn to check this one out. I am afraid the only thing you would hug if you bought a biscuit here would be the toilet bowl.
We have been pushing the fuel limit the last couple of tanks and took fuel were we could get it when the low level light came on. We pulled into "Needmore Grocery and Station" and paid a very high price for 87 octane, their only type. Guess the high price is because they are saving up for a new fuel filter.
