We'll probably hit the road from Frisco, TX between 9:00 and 9:30, so should be there between 3:30 and 4:00. I've wanted to do this tour for a long time and now live close enough to make it happen.

Thanks, Brian. It sounds like a great drive but would add more miles and hours than we would like.

We're going to take US 75 onto US 69, then on to I-40 and I-49 and on to Eureka Springs. We plan to stop for lunch in Eufaula, OK at a place called I Smell Bacon.

Ditto for me ... before all the deer come out to play. Leaving Texas Thursday, going through Paris area and Talimena Scenic Drive, sleeping somewhere off the I-40 corridor, then playing on the fun roads Friday till I check in before dark.
Is anybody planning dinner out Friday?

Mike and I are leaving Austin tomorrow at noon to Paris, Texas
Thursday, we're driving from Paris to Mt Magazine State Park (Paris, AR). --> Paris to Paris!
Friday, we'll be driving a bunch of roads between Paris, AR and Eureka Springs, arriving in town around 3-4 pm.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again. It's been too long.

I may be delayed 2 hours, so I can pick up my iPhone X in Lexington KY.
