As I moved into central Arkansas the land got progessively flatter & wetter as the mountains gave way to the Mississippi River Valley. Also I started seeing armadillos everywhere – dead on the side of the road.
At one point I spotted a dead skunk hanging on a tree branch. I’d be really interested to know how that happened.
I encountered about a hundred kids on a field trip at one of the attractions I visited and I think one of those little brats made me sick.
I made it back to Michigan but I don’t have a wifi connection here, so while there are a few posts still coming, it may take me a while to get them up.
