Trip Notes:
Great day with Bill Mahnkey, my Navy ship mate. Did you know that in 1950 the entire town of Forsyth moved from the side of the White River to a ridge well above the water. That's because the Army Corps of Engineers dammed the river creating a lake that would've inundated the town.

That's just one of the fascinating facts Bill shared during his guided tour of the community his family's lived in for generations.

The afternoon meant a leisurely ride along US-62 through northern Arkansas.

Only two more states to complete the 48. Oklahoma tomorrow.
