Hey Dr Foosball! Happy to see you back on the 'net after moving to Hot Water City. Hope everything is going well. Tomorrow we are going to explore a road in south Clark County that we have found and never been on. Last week I was at an abandoned pre-Civil War cemetery in Montgomery County. Eat your heart out!!!

Glad you don't plan on doing much exploring here in NWA for a few days, I don't think you would get very far..Boy does it look awful out right now.

That's why we confine our explorations to southwest AR. The only thing we have to contend with is mud and high water. Today we had plenty of mud but was turned back only two times; once by water and the other by too much potential soft mud. Did a revisit to two pioneer (1850s) abandoned cemeteries, found two pioneer farmsteads, and two Indian Sites. A productive day.

Ahhh, that's what I like to do....drive and explore. I also like to get out of the car and out into the woods whenever possible.

I'm envious of you, Slim.

Cool [cold]! As you know that's the main subject today. We dressed for the predicted cold weather and planned to retreat if the rain/sleet moved in. It turned out to be a WONDERFUL shirt sleeve day. Wow!

Well, crap. I just noticed this post. I'm not gonna lie, it does sound a little scary to go out in the middle of nowhere with someone I have never met, but I would love to see some of those old sites you are finding.

Hey, I understand, maybe after you get your family there and settled down we can meet over a cup and get acquainted. Then you can decide if you want to tag along. I work most Mondays and one Saturday each month at the Ouachita National Forest archeologist office in Hot Springs. We also have a Chapter of the Arkansas Archeological Society in HS and meet the second Tuesday of each month at the Math, Science, and Art School. Each meeting we have a speaker/program of archeological stuff. I have the February program which will be on an Arizona ghost town.

My husband and I drove down from SWMO last Friday, spent the night in a lovely suite at the Arkansas House and then drove Saturday to the Buffalo River area and hiked from the Compton Trailhead to the Hemmed-In Hollow falls. What a wonderful experience! There was ice and snow still on the trees and ground at the higher elevations, but it quickly disappeared as we descended. The falls had a decent amount of water due to snowmelt. After taking pictures and eating lunch, we headed back up. It's quite a workout, uphill for 2.5 miles, but the views are amazing in winter when the foliage is off the trees. Hopefully, we can explore this area further in the next few months-it was a real treat!
