Although my ride through Arkansas is more pleasant than Louisiana, the bus experience left much to be desired. There is much more to the story than I am revealing here, but Greyhound and SCAT have really dropped the ball with this “service”.
[later] On the equipment front, I have a flashing tail light, which I always use, and a headlight, which I don’t usually use (except at night). I see from an Arkansas bicycle publication that some places in Arkansas require a bell, which I don’t have. Another item for the gear list.
I hope to make it back here soon so that I can continue my journey to Memphis and say that I made the trip. I have the strength, resources and initiative to do the trip now but my saddle sores are quite bad and I need the break.
