Today, we started the day enjoying a pancake breakfast at our RV park in Branson. Then, we packed up the motorhome and headed south to Arkansas. We were driving through the Ozark Mountains, so we were going up and down and winding all around. We stopped in Fayetteville and got set up in our new RV park.
The University of Arkansas had a football game yesterday with Auburn that went into 4 overtimes! Arkansas won the game, but the RV park was a bit slow to empty out today as it was filled with Razorback fans celebrating their win. The park owner told us to be sure to arrive after noon so we would have a place to park.
After connecting the coach to electric and water, we headed out to find a place to eat. The RV park owner recommended a near-by barbeque restaurant called Penguin Ed’s. The Sunday special was a bowl mixture of Fritos, beans, pulled pork, and coleslaw. It sounded a little weird, but we went for the new Arkansas cultural experience and ordered the special. I enjoyed it, but Charlene had a little more trouble eating it. She ate the pork, but did not really care for the other ingredients. Oh well, we tried it.
We next went to the University of Arkansas campus. I remember a number of years ago when Arkansas beat Arizona in basketball during the NCAA tournament. President Bill Clinton was rooting for Arkansas, so I have not necessarily been in love with the University of Arkansas since that game.
We found their football stadium and walked all around campus. We walked around their Old Main building and found their gate to the university. There were beautiful trees changing color all over campus.
