Wow, my little Cube was a trooper but, wow, those hills and dales, although beautiful, was quite an experience for a Minnesotan. But, I made it & plan to have a good time while I'm here.

I'm from south Louisiana and the hills took a little getting used to but a couple days of driving and it becomes fun.

Accelerate downhill and let gravity slow you on the rise, just like a roller coaster, but free!

They are a bigger treat with a full gasoline tanker on 18 wheels.

Have a great time.

It's the Ozarks. It wouldn't be them without the hills and hollers. Part of their charm along with the natives and narrow, two-lane, uppy-downy, twisty-curvy country roads. They're fun.

When my Topeka, Kansas buddy visits me and we go to Branson for an evening meal, he always says, "you are going to have to slow this thing down or clean your floorboards when you get home". Oh boy, these flatlanders! LOL

When the people realize Missouri & Arkansas roads are mostly paved over horse and wagon trails that follow the "hog backs" until MODOT finally straightens and level the roads, so hence the " two-lane, uppy-downy, twisty-curvy country roads". It all then begins to make sense. IMHO

And they're a big part of Ozarks charm!
