Current Location: Hot Springs National Park KOA, Hot Springs, Arkansas
“Home” being Nashville for about three weeks, that is. We left Houston about 8:30 this morning and headed up US 59 to Texarkana where we picked up I-30 into Arkansas. Mapping software indicated almost exactly 800 miles between Houston and Nashville, so we picked this area as being about halfway there.
Hot Springs is actually a bit off the path (about 15 miles away from the interstate), but we decided to stay in the KOA due to the ratings and the ease of verifying that a site was available and booking it on the road via our KOA app. There are a couple dozen campgrounds in this immediate area and we didn’t feel like spending a lot of time digging through campground reviews.
We should roll into Nashville tomorrow around dinner time tomorrow (depending on how quickly we get rolling in the morning from here and how much traffic is involved in various construction projects on I-40 in Arkansas).
