Group will depart from Bruce's house at 9 am Oct. 17th, 2018.  We will drive to Rogers, AR (9.5 hours) and try to get a little ride in before dark. We will be staying at an AirB&B in Rogers. The address of the house is:

Rogers, AR 72756

The tentative agenda from there is below:

Thursday, Oct. 18th

  • Breakfast from 6:30 - 8 am

  • Load up and drive to Bentonville

  • Ride Slaughter pen, Coler, and as much of the Back 40 as we can. Lunch in Bentonville.

Saturday, Oct. 20th

Sunday, Oct. 21st

  • Breakfast from 6:30 - 8 am

  • Break down camp.

  • Quick shower and hop in the van by 9 to head back home.

  • Lunch/dinner on the road.

Breakfast will be included with the cost of the trip. All other meals will be managed via group decision. We can keep cost down by shopping at grocery stores and preparing lunches and eating dinners at the house. Friday and Saturday nights we will be camping and eating dinner at a restaurant in Eureka Springs. Lots to choose from there, so we should be able to agree on something as a group. I'll reserve in advance to ensure group facilitation.
