I was amazed I missed this report as I try to read anything doing with Arkansas. You did it right! I too learn NOT to drive faster than I can stop in line of vision.
And you did right by turning when you did. Running solo and taking chances where nobody may find you for days is a sure way to become part of the food chain.
Thanks for sharing. I was roaming about Arizona area on Bandit at the time of the report so that how I missed it. I just looked at your dates.
