Arkansas, Where The People Rule

Arkansas, Where The People Rule

We spent a few beautiful days in Little Rock, Arkansas.

It was city that felt a bit like home - the folks we met were friendly, down to earth, and made us feel right at home. We spent a day playing and biking and swapping stories with Ron King of Recycled Bikes for Kids. We had fun playing around, and then Ron treated us to a delicious lunch at Stickyz. Later that week Chris and I went and saw the Turnpike Troubadours at Stickyz - it was a great show, a good time, and there was some great local flavor. We also hung out with Nancy, a woman who works with the blind and visually impaired on tandem bikes in Little Rock. She invited us into her home for a fun and delicious meal.

In Little Rock I had the misfortune of being pretty out of commission for our second story - for some reason the muscles in my upper back were causing me nearly unbearable pain. I ended up visiting a very wonderful family doctor that prescribed me some relaxants and gave me some tips on recovery.

We were able to squeeze in a little touristing prior to our departure - we ate at some delicious restaurants and got to walk around the state capitol. Since it was the weekend the building was empty - which put Steven at ease.

All in all Arkansas was lovely, and the people were great. You could even say that 'The People Rule' in Arkansas.
