We got an early start out of the Round Spring Campground yesterday morning. We took advantage of the facilities and had a nice quick hot shower. Then on our way out we used the dump station for the first time this trip, and topped up our fresh water tank.
We stopped for breakfast yesterday around 9:00am and found an unsecured internet spot near a library. Not picking up much cell signal coverage for our mi-fi out here in the middle of nowhere.
Crossed the border into
Arkansas and stopped for lunch in the town of . Again, we used their town library internet. Viola
Lots of twisty curvy roads yesterday. We even saw one sign that warned of steep windy roads for the next 20 miles! So we took it anyhow, and although it was slow going it really wasn’t that bad.
has been on much worse roads! Sherman

It rained on and off all day, but never more than showers. Didn’t see the sun all day!
Finally pulled into Blanchard Springs Caverns in the
just after 4:00pm. The caves are open until 6:00pm, but the last tour was at 4:30pm. We went in and thought about going, but the difficult tour that we wanted to do wasn’t being done after Labor Day so we decided not to spend the $10 each doing the easy tour. We’ve been in a lot of caves and we like exploring caves, but we’re more critical now about spending our money on them. Ozark National Forest
So we drove around to the Blanchhard Springs Campground. This is a nice National Forest campground with paved unserviced sites at $10 a night. Not many level sites, and rigs over 32 feet might have difficulty.
found a good site though! Sherman
Sherman, parked up for the night.
We watched the original Godfather (1972) movie last night. Almost made it through the whole thing, but still have a half hour or so to go. We don’t think we have ever watched that movie which is very surprising. It’s good entertainment and I can see why it’s a classic.
