Hot Chicks of the Eastern TAT

Yeah I know , another freaking TAT Report!
This ones different, it's mine.
olebuudy and I left Saturday morning from North Eastern Texas to ride the Mississippi, Arkansas, and Oklahoma section s of the TAT. We skipped the Tennessee part because it is mostly paved and we had to be back the next Sunday.

We had to make a decision for lunch!
Mamma's


Or Taco Bell



As any savvy Advrider would we picked Mama's, for the good food, and the Hot Chicks






Refreshed ,olebuddy and I slabbed it to Holly Springs,Mississippi to the State park and set up camp.

We then headed to JB's on the Square for more food





and Hot Chicks

We got up and lazed around camp Sunday morning, drank three Jetboil of Coffee, then headed off to JB's for breakfast.




Then we headed for Tennessee to pick up the trail at the Old Mill Pond State Park. First thing out of the box , we run into a closed road. Being from Texas, if something is closed in a State Park, they are serious. We rerouted and found the trail . Woo Hoo! I had been dreaming about this for a while.

We head on down the trail ad find this



No way across. The water looked deep and we had nothing to build a bridge with. Reroute again! No big deal!
Head on out and run across this pretty little spot


Found a few flooded roads



and these FF'S


Feel the Love!
Hey Sirwrecksalot!
These guys turned us on to some great Convenience Store Fried Chicken.

The trail goes right back by Holly Springs State Park. Might as well camp there tonight. We had a gourmet meal at camp

Curtis had a big day Sunday,rode about 700 miles and stopped in Helena , Ar. for the night. We were going to wait on him in Holly Springs. Got another late start , finally hooked up with Curtis about 11am.
Let's hit the trail!



We saw some of this



This


and this

Because I am a Rancher, I enjoy the Agriculture that you see along the way!




I saw this guy make a pass and whipped into this parking lot to get his picture



We got close enough to get sprayed olebuddy said that if he gets Cancer he's going to kick my butt!

More food stops. If you get a chance to stop at Nick's , go for it.

Nice Little Mom and Pop Motel. The owners speak good English with a Mississippi accent. Highly recommended by Bigdon.

Olebuddy found the only concrete nail in Mississippi



These guys stopped to see if we needed anything, but we had it under control. Thanks Guys!



Looks like this wild thing got out of the pasture

olebuddy used to laugh at me for carrying locktight. Not laughing anymore are you Bud.


Look , those are almost mountains. Must be Arkansas!



I like Arkansas



These guys thought we were lost! Nah!





We saw some nice views!



After nearly starving my companions we made the Mecca of Arkansas



Curtis took a different route. Said he wanted a brake from the dust. I think after his encounter with a few mudholes he decided the dust was not so bad. He was going to meet us here but did not make it. Anyway how bout a food shot?



The owner of the Oark Store is putting in a few cabins where the TAT riders will not have to ride the 20 something miles to Clarksville to sped the night. I would have gladly rented his cabin.
These are great folks and take good care of you! We had to come back for breakfast.
