From Oklahoma City, we traveled on I-40 through Little Rock, Arkansas and Memphis, Tennessee. Between the two, we had an unscheduled overnight stay in the tiny town of Forrest City, AR. The motorhome lost its serpentine belt and we had to get towed off the highway. We spent the night in the parking lot of the repair facility but were on the road by 10:30 the next morning. Since we were a day behind, we just had a quick overnight in Memphis. We stayed at Tom Sawyer RV Park, right on the bank of the Mississippi River and went into the city for some delicious barbecue (something in short supply in the Southwest!)
We are now in Benton, KY, at Moor's Resort, enjoying a beautiful view of Kentucky Lake from our campsite, for only $25 a night.
The lake is 165 miles long and, along with Lake Barkley, was formed when the mile-long Kentucky Dam was built on the Tennessee River. The Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area protects the area from development and preserves it for the people to enjoy fishing and boating.
We'll be leaving here tomorrow and will be making a bee-line for Connecticut, about 1100 miles to go. In my next post, I'll explain about the RV refrigerator reconditioning training and certification that Ed received here from the RVRN through Ford Refrigeration and what it means for Protech's future. We're excited!
