We left Lake Eufaula KOA at 1030 headed to Spadra Lake COE campground in Clarksville, AR. It was only about 140 miles so we weren't in a hurry.
|Beautiful Lake Eufaula|

|I love this house!|
Now of course our grandparents are long gone, along with our Aunt Elma who was Daddy's oldest sister. She lived just down the street from grandma and grandpa. Boy could she cook!! She had a cow and every morning we would take milk to grandma and grandpa in a large Karo syrup jar..I still love those jars to this day!
We used to go to the little store (no longer there) and get grandpa's chew along with some candy too. We were known as "The Phillips girls from CA"..good times! There are no bad memories associated with Clarksville, Arkansas..:)

|I hate pics of me but Ken wanted me to post one..at least you|
can't see my eyes are probably closed, they always are in pics..
It was a cold evening..so nice to have a fire!
This morning we set the alarm for 0500 because we knew we were going about 230 miles today and wanted to get an early start..we left the campground about 0830 after breakfast.
It was a nice drive until near Little Rock and then tons of semis everywhere! Geez..that's why I tell Ken when we come back next year we'll take our time and not do I40 because it sucks..
|Isn't she beautiful??|
|Water tower Remington, AR|
|The Remington Ammunition factory...|

|And there you go..uhhh...|
Arkansas on the east side, definitely not as green and pretty as the west side but still stuff to look at, I haven't opened my book..too much to look at. ha
|and of course...:)|
|Love these places...|
|Brightly colored fruit stand right before our turn off I55..|
We pulled into the KOA at West Memphis at 1340 and the sign said they were closed for lunch. So I pulled out our salad stuff and by they time I got it out they were open for business again. So we got our spot and then got lunch.
Got a little laundry going and just enjoying the cold afternoon in the warm camper.
Tomorrow we'll arrive at Don's in the afternoon. We've got about 260 miles to go!
