Day 1
June 15th, 2013

The first day we left GA and drove 650 miles.  We arrived at Mount Nebo State Park in Arkansas after dark and set up camp. We were all tired and a bit edgy.  I would like to say that we had a good night sleep and headed out early the next morning, however, it was not so... Stringer had a rough first day and paced the tent most of the night.  Rain started to fall lightly at some point in the night and we woke with the sunrise and thunder.  Shortly after waking we were taking down the tent while the bottom fell out of the sky and we were soaking wet.  Eventually, the rain slowed and we drank coffee and repacked the car.

The campsite and park were very well managed and bath house very clean.  The views from Mount Nebo were quite spectacular and I would recommend the park to any one looking to camp in Arkansas.

Day 2
June 16th, 2013

Our next destination was Foss Lake, Oklahoma 375 miles away.  We left early and hoped to have plenty of down time to set up the tent and cook dinner.  Pictures from Foss Lake are shown here. Note how idyllic they look. Then read the above story.
