I've been following along and enjoying your ride report. Thanks for posting.
Saw where you are in Hardy, AR. You my friend, are on the verge of some absolutely great bike riding. I'm envious. Do you know about Butler Maps? They have released a riders map of the Ozarks ......... If I were you, it would be a priority of mine to find one of those maps and start riding some of those highly rated roads. There are some great little towns up that way also.
Watch out for all the Arkies heading to and from church tomorrow morning. Many of them will be hungover, or still drunk, from Saturday night.
Woo Pig Soooie!
Have fun and breathe it all in. Ride safe.
