Sowbug Roundup 2003

On the way there

To get to the Sowbug Roundup in Mountain Home, Arkansas from Lake Charles, Louisiana we had to drive the north-south length of essentially both Louisiana and Arkansas. It was just over a 12-hour drive. The Sowbug Roundup was on March 29th and 30th, 2003.

For lunch Valerie wanted to stop at Toad Suck Park in Conway, Arkasas on Thursday.

A relatively rare photo proving my existence (maybe...I look kind of fuzzy if you ask me).
