And some of us can't remember which way we are going in neighborhoods like that.

yep, especially when every street is a circle, a cul de sac or whatever and every street has 2 entrances.

Concerning the winding roads:
Are they very windy in Harrison too? Any smaller city where the roads are NOT too winding? Thanks so much for your information!

Directly in the town of Harrison, they are not. Hwy 65 really isn't bad either, but the other highways leading out of Harrison will be. (Hwy 7 south especially)

We are thinking of visiting NWA as part of a vacation, and I love scenic roads, but not the sort that brings on nausea.
Hwy 7 is the worst I know about. My siblings and I used to get car sick when my parents would drive it.

Sounds like OP would be better off staying in Iowa or moving to some other flat state with their winding road phobia. I mean c'mon, really? You're talking about moving to a mountainous region, what do you expect? What are you gonna do, find a relatively flat area and never venture out of it? What's the point of moving to the Ozarks then? There are a lot of places to live cheap in this country without having to worry about winding roads.

Sorry, I don't get it.

Some people enjoy negative comments and worry about a person's reason for moving - OTHERS DON'T and just try to be helpful - and that's the best part of a forum!

Thanks to everyone who is really interested in replying and not just criticizing!

Yeah, there is always one or another, usually from some
other forum, (and some other state) that has to
drop their 2cent whine in a thread.
