... countless miles of roads out there to wheel on.
the truck has completed quite a few of them so far but many more to go!

Tiger 90

Route 90 is a two-lane highway for its entire length and is in rugged areas, very hilly and very curvy.

redeemed an FBR in Springdale AR before heading out
a frozen hot chocolate for a very hot morningIMG_2941.JPG

took a 'scenic' route to find that tiger trail east on US-412 to north AR-23 to US-62 in Eureka Springs, then west to AR-37 north to the Missouri border
US-62 is a wickked drive through NWC Arkansas, no safety time to look out at the mountains lest you drive right off the road

Quite the strange road this MN-19 was
Minnesota is the land of 10000 lakes
And yet I only recall seeing 1 lake along the 200+ miles road
Which was more of a pond than a lake lol

the end of Viking 19 at the SD border

You should wait a few months. Then we'll have ice and snow pack on the "trails".......and more potholes. ;)
Or it could be like last year and be nothing but a cold & arid desert lol

The only real snow I ran into last season was in KCMO blizzatd and way up north in north central Minnesota where the Mississippi river starts
Not even south Dakota had any measurable snow until near the North Dakota border
Lol
