Hangin’ with Mark Jones in Mountain View, Arkansas
After driving half way across the country to Minnesota and doing a three week renovation of my childhood home to get it ready for sale (mom and dad passed away earlier this year), I was pretty beat. However, I was pretty excited to get down to Harrison, Arkansas to stain my soon to be retirement home. So with my Expedition loaded to the hilt and my trailer not being able to hold any more stuff, I left Minnesota on my twelve hour trip (September 2nd).
The trip went pretty well. The weather hot, but nice and the traffic was pretty light for a Friday. I made it to my house at 7:30 PM and a friend of mine showed up to help me unload the trailer as it got dark. We visited for a bit, catching up on what we’d been up to and then called it a night.
