Well what an adventure I've had today. My dad won a new bass boat on Ebay last night at $7,000 cheaper than the lowest price he could get locally so off we went this morning 750 miles to Bull Shoals, Arkansas. It took us 12 hours to get here at the hotel and we will pick up the boat in the morning and head home. He's trying to talk me into stopping at Elvis' Graceland in Memphis TN on the way back but that was before my time even though I do like a few Elvis songs. Just not sure if I want to spend 3 or 4 hours touring Elvis' house, cars, airplanes, museum:confused2:. We went over the Mississippi river which was beyond HUGE. Lots of huge steel bridges, barges and such below. I hope to get some pictures of that on the way back. We are staying in a hotel right in the middle of 2 Arkansas lakes (Norfork and Bull Shoals) which also look amazing. Wish it wasnt so far from home Im sure they are loaded with those Arkansas Blues. Even the local Wal Mart here has much more fishing tackle than any around us in SC do. Lots of BIG tackle for those big cats around here I assume. Those big catfish and the farming out here must take one heck of a toll on these folks over the years because the wal-mart had no less than 25 electric wheel chair shopping carts in it.:smile2: We hope to tour the Bull Shoals lake dam tomorrow if we have time right after we pick up the boat. The Hotel manager said it was quite a sight to see. Said they used an 8 mile long conveyer belt in the 1940's to bring in the rocks to build the dam which took several years and the belt ran non-stop. Quite an interesting story I hope to get a few pictures of that tomorrow. I must say however the ride from Memphis to here was beyond boring. Its about 200+ miles of nothing but flat farmland and marsh. Man Im not sure if I would live there if I was given the house and land. You would have to get a hotel and make a 2 day trip just to go out to eat or shopping it seemed so far away from anything. Very Very few houses, people, stores or anything in that part of Arkansas. Hope to report more tomorrow and post a few pics if I can get Pops to drive some:smile2:.
