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

    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 morning IMG_2941.JPG
    IMG_2939.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
