The GPS did send us on a little mystery tour. Actually, we knew where we were but it was on a narrow dirt road for about 2 miles, and it cut a lot of time off the other possible route. But otherwise, it was a nice drive through scenic countryside.
A little slow going at times, but Sherman was up for the challenge!
Slow, but the road surface was in good condition
Anyone want to buy some rocks?
So we pulled in to Hot Springs National Park, just a little west of the city of Little Rock. The campground has just been redone and you can see they spent a lot of money on it very recently. Our only complaint is that the sites are a little too close together for our liking, but otherwise it's a very nice campground. And, the unserviced sites are only $10, with no day use fee. The electric/water sites are $24. We think this is the way the pricing should be.
Sherman, parked up for $10 a night.
The original plan was to meet our friends Chris and Juan in San Antonio for Tuesday, but things changed on their end so now we don't have that timeline to meet. That gives us an extra couple of days because our only deadline now is to cross into Mexico by this coming Friday. We still have about 690 miles (1,100 kms) to go, but some of that will be done on the Interstate. So we've decided to stay here tonight as well, and do some exploring of the park today.
That is, if the rain lets up! Pouring rain so far this morning!
Looking out Sherman's window this morning!
