September 25 - 26, 2021Weekend Driving Event!

Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas

 

Nineteen folks and ten Cars met at the Buc-ee’s in Melissa, Texas for a drive to Talihina, Oklahoma to drive the Talimena National Scenic Byway thru the mountains which span Oklahoma and Arkansas. On the way there was a lunch stop in Talihina, Oklahoma for BBQ at the Outlaw BBQ. After a great lunch it was on to the Byway. The Byway is a wonderful drive that all of the car clubs love to drive because it has wonderful scenic vistas but best of all is the drive, 45 miles of hills, curves and challenges for the cars and the drivers. The weather was perfect for having the tops down on the cars and on the byway the group made a stop at a vista for a photo op with the club banner and pictures of the incredible view. After the drive the group checked into the 40 room Queen Wilhelmina Lodge which has a great restaurant and a view that is amazing of the mountains and valley.  After checking in, the group rode the train in the adjacent park and visited the ice cream bar which has the best Blue Bell Ice Cream. Later in the evening the group met for a sit down dinner. They had a great time sharing stories and recalling the drive earlier in the day.  Some of the folks retired for the evening and others retired to the lobby area and played games late into the night. The next day the group met for breakfast and more stories were told. After breakfast it was on to Mena, Arkansas and a scenic drive to Bonham, Tx for lunch at Shumardii’s Restaurant.  After lunch goodbyes were shared folks headed back to Dallas with good memories of the past two days.  Thanks to Peg and Larry Reeg who put together a great trip!
