12/27/09, 8 miles South of Marked Tree, AR - I had the Belgians hitched for what turned out to be a beautiful day. 

Before we pulled out this morning, we had a great visit from some horse guys that have ridden on wagon trains in the past. All day long folks were stopping to meet and greet us (there’s nothing bashful about folks down here in Arkansas)!

This nice family were on their way to a horseback ride when they pulled over to chat.

Just before we pulled in to Marked Tree, this nice family stopped to say ‘hi’, and give us a nice gift.

This is actually two groups of people that were waiting at a turnout, south of Marked Tree.

Our hosts for the evening, the Fulfords, live at the end of a half mile long drive, on the bank of the Saint Francis River.

The amigos really enjoying their deluxe accommodations, complete with long fescue grass and a riparian view.

The soybean and cotton fields of the past 200 miles, have now been replaced by soybeans and rice. From talking to the locals, that will be the case until we cross the Arkansas River, at Pine Bluff, where the terrain will change over to woodlands.

We’re settled in a very nice location tonight. Suzy and Mickey have a nice house on the banks of the St. Francis River. The team is settled in a large plot of really good graze and enjoying what horses like best - eating good grass.

Shortly after we got here, Ms. Jimmie Varner, from Carraway, AR, finally met up with us. She has been driving around half the day trying to find us, hoping to buy a book.  Over the phone, I finally got her directed to our overnight location, and she got her book.  If she was being graded on her afternoon exercise, she would have definitely gotten an A+ for perseverance and effort.

Another banner day.  So far, Arkansas has been a really nice place to drive. The people are friendly, the terrain has been flat, the roads have been good, and the wagon is fully provisioned.
