Day 14
Texarkana, Arkansas to Pine Bluff, Arkansas
162 miles, 2500 feet climbing


The fourteenth day carried us from Texarkana to Greenfield, Arkansas. The first order of business was a stop at the local tire shop to replace the tires on the trailers. A blowout the day before had served to point out the age of the tires on both trailers, so Lon arranged to slip into a local Cooper's at opening time. After that, we stopped at a carwash to hose down the van, trailer, and our bike (up on top) to wash off all the mud of the day before. Unfortunately I still haven't gotten it out of my socks !

The highlight of the day was driving through Hope, birthplace of President Clinton. We knew this because billboards and banners proclaimed it throughout town.
