623 miles, 12 hours in the saddle. Should be the longest driving day of the trip. Heading to St. Louis tomorrow.

A monument to Freedom, Democracy, and blowing the hell out of your enemies. This display of ordnance was recently erected in McAlester, OK, home to the McAlester Army Munition Plant.
The monument was very recently upgraded and rebuilt to showcase the MOAB, which was dropped in Afghanistan back in April. Don’t worry. It’s inert.
We drove on Arkansas Highway 23, better known as the Pig Trail for its corkscrew meanderings though the Ozark National Forest. Even in the Oddy, it was a blast to drive.
The Ozarks. Gorgeous country.
