Daisy Heads West Again

Hi Folks,

We're heading west again. We'll be traveling to Wyoming to attend WBCCI's International Rally, then spending some time in the Tetons. When we head back, we'll go over the top of Lake Superior, before making our way south back to Florida.

Follow along on our website.

Randy

Vicarious Ride Along

Randy,
We followed along last year and we'll do the same this year. I am envious that you two get to travel the country while I am stuck in my cubicle. Have fun and stay safe.

Blog Updated

Two new blog posts this morning. I'm trying to deal with the incompatibilities between Macs and PCs, so PC users, let me know if any pictures drift over the words on any posts.

Thanks for following along,

Randy

Has anyone traveled Arkansas Highway 7 from Hot Springs to Harrison pulling a trailer?

The posts looked OK on my PC. Sounds like a nice trip so far. Be safe and keep us posted.

Hi Randy. Pre-trailer we drove this approximate route from Eureka Springs to Hot Springs; probably on AR-7 most of the way. Sometime in the late '80s? I don't recall whether there were switchbacks but do remember it as an enjoyable, scenic and straightforward drive on 2-lane, somewhat curvy road. It won't be a fast passage but it won't be slow either. Gear down on downgrades and take it easy. I'd pull my Safari across there without much hesitation.

Hope you can stop awhile at the Buffalo River to dangle your ankles.

Hi Bob,

There are some motorcyclists parked here at the KOA in Hot Springs that said they wouldn't even drive a car over that road. They compared it to US-129 in NC that wraps around south of the Smokies. Cyclists call it the Dragon, 300 turns in 11 miles.

The AAA map shows it a very curvy but marks it as scenic. Looks like a great ride. I'm still thinking about it. We won't leave here until Tuesday.

Randy

Don't know if you if you have left the Hot Springs area yet but there is a great COE campgound on the south shore of Lake Quachita about 25 miles west of Hot Springs on Hwy 270 named Denby Point. It is close to Mt Ida. If you stay there be sure and go over to the the cafe at the Shangrila marina for some of the best home made pie you will every taste.

Hmm... Sounds like US-50 in far northeast West Virginia. I didn't like towing on that one at all!

Forums members? Any more experiences with Hot Springs to Harrison?

LOL Sounds a little like the "Road to Hana" in Maui! One time was enough for us in a car. The difference of course was It has over 60 one way bridges. Oh very scenic!

See you in Gillette!

Thanks for the tip and the restaurant recommendation, but we head north from Hot Springs tomorrow.

The owner of the KOA told me she drove a 30' motorhome on route 7 north and didn't have any trouble. It is slow going though, with many sharp turns. I'll make a decision tonight.

Randy
