What one calls a journey to find the "Holy Grail". Taking time to search, study, and be aware of one's situational awareness while the chances of actually finding a 'whale' are remote. Enjoy the journey and live.

Day 4 - Journey to Jasper, AR
The continued journey took us to Jasper, AR. Jasper is a small town that is located alongside the Buffalo National River and the Ozark National Forest. We took a respite to acquire some java and mingle with the local folk. Our previous experience of the Arkansan people has been one of warm and friendly acceptance...this occasion was no exception. We stopped in the Ozark Cafe for lunch of catfish, beans and shoestring french fries. Yumm... We had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Louise, who had been a waitress there in 1951... a charming lady. We were greeted by affable waitresses, Dawn and Candace, who were intrigued by our adventure and were gracious enough to have the staff take a picture with us. Good food, good company, and good gracious we are full. Off to the next highpoint.
