I have a trip next week and will be starting day 2 in Braynt ,AK. Jumping off to Hot Springs on 70 then out on 270 to Mt Ida. Then down 27 to Norman where I pick up 8 to Mena. Then out of Mena on the Talihina senic Byway (88). Jump on down on 259 and cut over on 63 to Talihina. Get on 2 for a short bit and get off on 1. Looks like all the good stuff is over by McAlester. Then blow on into Lawton for the week. I have never ridden the Ozarks south of I 40 so I am looking for good ideas on the return trip on the 13th. Ideas anyone? How does my route sound?
