Monday, March 28, 2016, Maumelle Park, AR, Day 3, 0 Miles, 6,166.8 Miles for the Trip

Another quiet day. I did a bit more than yesterday - I checked the propane & found one tank empty, so I went is search of it. Found it at the Little Rock U-Haul. Not inexpensive at $19.14 for 4.4 gallons, but they were the closest supplier. Distances can fool you here because of the Arkansas River. My GPS starts out with line of sight mileage to what ever you find, then later calculated the actual route. Since there is only one nearby bridge over the river, many of the closest locations are actually a longer drive.

I also found a post office to mail Zoe's birthday card, and a Target to fill a prescription. As usual, my last set of refills were through Rite Aid, and there are no Rite Aids in Little Rock (or anywhere nearby). Sure am glad I asked each doctor for two hand written prescriptions.

After that it was back to the campground. By then it had warmed up enough to be comfortable sitting outside, so I spent most of the day reading. I did take a walk to the other end of the campground, checking out some of the river front sites.

Dinner was a "T" bone steak & country style beans, along with an Alaskan White beer.

Until next time -
