    Sat. was 95' so took a little ride. About 25 miles from the house you can get on gravel roads and ride to Arkansas with verly little pavement.

    I only went about 25 more miles one way for a little over 100 miles. I got 99.7 MPG. Half was 35MPH or less.







    GPS told me there was a road through here.

    The next three pictures are in a camp ground. I did not go in to the main part because the camping part was full. It cost $8 a day. I pased a small camp ground that was free. You had to bring your own water and has pit tolits. It is on the Ozark hiking trail.

    I forgot to take a picture of the store where I turned around so went back on Monday in the 47 Ford.

    This Davisville store and post office. The post office is officially named "Pucky Huddle".



    We were near this mill so we stoped there.

    It looks like you had an enjoyable ride. I've never been to Arkansas or Missouri, it looks like you have some beautiful, very green country to enjoy. The pictures of the mill are pretty cool also. Was the mill water powered? Thanks for sharing your ride.

    It is watered powered but the wheel is called a turbine. The turbine sets under water with a vertical shaft.

    The first mill was built on the Huzzah near what is now the town of Dillard in the 1850s, but burned in 1895. Emil Mischke, an emigrant from Germany, bought the property in 1900. He used some of the hand-hewn timbers salvaged from the first mill to build the second.



    Mischke was something of an innovator. He used steel roller mills, instead of the more common buhr stones, for grinding and introduced a turbine instead of a water wheel to power the mill, which was completed in 1908.

    I love your ride adventures. You always show some very interesting things. On this trip you had me from the very first photo as I've always been drawn to train sfuff, like abandoned or seldom used tracks, train depots etc... Love the store too. Guess I like old historical things!



    Thanks so much for sharing.
