Heading to the Fusing in the Ozarks Fall 2021 Rally - Day 2 - To Russellville, AR

 On Wednesday We left Tupelo and headed for a jaunt through Mississippi with our ultimate goal of spending the night in Russellville, AR.   After a great night we headed out through the backroads of Mississippi to see Fort Curtis, a reconstructed Civil War Fort in Helena, AR.   

Well we listened to Siri and Apple Maps drove down a number of farm roads, backroads and saw a huge number of Farms growing everything from soybeans, to wheat to cotton.   We even found a bump over some railroad tracks where I think the Fuse was airborne.  Think of the Fuse taking the place the General Lee in the Dukes of Hazzard.   Decided to come to almost a stop before going over any more train tracks after that.

We got to the Fort and it was closed.  It looked nice but it was locked up due we guess to COVID.    We ate some lunch in the Fort Parking Lot and then went on a tour of the farms of Arkansas.  It is always amazing to me the difference in the land on one side of the Mississippi River and the other.  

We drove for a while and arrived at our destination at the Ivy Cove RV retreat in Russellville, AR.

We thought that Russellville would be a small town but it was not.  Big and bustling with every store you could imagine and it was the home of Arkansas Tech University.   Right down I-40 from Little Rock.  The best part was the restaurants all seemed open so KFC was for dinner.

So on Wednesday we traveled a little over 323 miles.  We got 16.5mpg
