Harry and Judy's RV Trip
22nd Jul 2015 - Summer 2015
Day 52-July 22, 2015-North Little Rock, AR

Day 52-July 22, 2015-To North Little Rock, AR

Drove 189 miles in 5-1/4 hours.  Rained in AM, then cleared a bit.  Got up to 92.

Rained a lot last night and everything was wet in the morning but we managed to get out of the campground before it started raining again.  Rained most of the morning as we drove through the Ozarks again on US 65 for four hours through small towns like Pindall (pop. 95) and bigger cities, like Harrison that had  Wal-Marts, McDonalds and a lot of Sonic Drive Ins. We drove over the Buffalo River into Marshall, a big canoeing, kayaking, water sport area and ate lunch in the RV.  Continued to Conway, where we got on I-40 into Little Rock, then N. Little Rock.  We’re out of the Ozarks and in Ouachita Mountain Range now, which doesn’t seem to be as “mountainous”.

We stayed at this campground last year, it’s a Passport America and right on the Arkansas River that divides Little Rock and N. Little Rock.  There are three bridges that span the river here and the bridge we’re under is the Clinton Presidential Walking Bridge and goes right into the Clinton Library. We’re just here for overnight, didn’t unhook or attach anything but the electric.  Took a walk around the campground after dinner.  It’s downtown, small, just gravel sites, secured by a cement wall and metal gates (we must be in a sketchy neighborhood).  The bridges lit up are gorgeous, they change from red to white to blue to red, white and blue.  Really pretty.

Finally got some decent wifi and cell service so we were attached to cords most of the night.  Checked on some campgrounds and mileage and things to do for the next few days.  I like to know what our options are, even if we change our minds at the last minute.  It’s only cost us $50.16 for campgrounds for the past 7 nights.  Wish we could get prices like that all the time.
