Day One: Out start is at Lake DeGray State Park. Our destination is White Oak State Park. The distance is an even 50 miles, which is the longest day planned but we will be fresh and ready. This park is remote, so plan to prepare your own evening meal. Lunch will probably be in Gurdon.
Day Two: From White Oak we will ride to Hope, AR. This is a 45 mile day with lunch being a little sketchy, but the road will provide. There are plenty of places to eat in Hope that night.
Day Three: From Hope to Murfreesboro with a stop in Washington for lunch and a tour for those interested. It is a neat place. This is a 45 mile day with a couple different routes available. We will choose as we go. If we choose to camp at the state park there is not a cafe available. If we choose to camp at the RV park the ride to a cafe is around 2 miles.
Day Four: Murfreesboro to Lake Dierks is 40 miles. The route we choose will determine our lunch. There is not a convenient motel bail-out or nearby cafe, but this is the night we may be treated to a fish fry.
Day Five: Lake Dierks to Kirby State Park or Kirby Landing, according to how the trip is going. Many options, so I will reserve any major plans on this one. The ride will be 40 miles.
Day Six: Kirby to DeGray State Park for 41 miles. We will have some options for breakfast and/or lunch. This ride will finish our tour ride.
