Real Estate Tips:
Diversify your portfolio as much as possible. You do not want to have all of your investment funds in only one type of investment. Spread them out over stocks, real estate, and other investments in order to protect yourself should something bad happen in one area of the investment market. One way to diversify your investment portfolio is through real estate. Although real estate might not have the glitz stock market investing, it is usually a solid core investment part of a portfolio. Often, real estate will hold its value when the market takes a downward turn, thereby; buffering any market loss.

    Join a roadtrip through Arkansas and the offbeat Ozark mountains and discover the best roads and best places to visit.
    Arkansas is not just worth a stop – it’s a destination. Shady forests , peaceful lakes and hidden treasures. Find out about the best places to visit when touring Arkansas and witness, how I nearly ran out of gas in the middle of the Ozarks.
    As soon as I arrived in Arkandas the scenery had changed from the endkess plains to beautiful rolling hills and lush green forests. Here are the best places to visit, best roads to ride and things to do when visiting Arkansas and the Ozark mountains:
    – Sleep at Sky-Vue Lodge. It is a historic and cozy little B&B right on the edge of the Ozark National forest. The property sits near the top of Mt. Gayler in the Boston Mountains, part of the stunning Arkansas Ozarks, and offers rooms with porches, a pizza service, and views, that money can’t buy.

    – Explore the White Rock Recreation Area and its amazing dirt roads
    – Ride the Pig Trail Scenic Byway. It winds through the rugged and forested Boston Mountains region of the Ozark Mountains. This 24 miles on State Highway 23 is one of Arkansas best motorcycle rides and USA Today listed the route as the # 2 of the best rides in America.
    – If you are looking for a good place to stay in the middle of the Ozarks, Mulberry Lodge, that is right on Highway 23, or Byrd’s Adventure Center are the best options. They offer as well camping – but were completely booked at my time of traveling.
    – Stop in Oark and visit the famous Oark Cafe to eat a burger. Established in 1890, it’s the oldest continuous-operation store in Arkansas. And yes, people literally drive for miles to eat one of its famous burgers.
    – Explore Falling Waterfalls. Falling Beauty Waterfall also known as Falling Water Waterfall is is literally next to the dirt road in the Richland Creek area of south Newton county in Arkansas. It's a peaceful little spot to have a picknick, a swim or to put up your hammock and enjoy the calming sounds of the water.
    – Don't run out of petrol in the middle of the Ozarks 😉
    – Camp at Barkshed Recreation Area. Barkshed is a primitive camp near a clear mountain stream. It was the old “Barkshed Forest Camp” and is a serene little oasis in the middle of the forest these days.

    1. August, 1982. Still in the midst of the "gas shortage." Trip out west, I get into Rapid City, SD, get a motel, and decide to sight see while I still have light. I was getting low on gas. I thought I'd just fill up later. Deadwood? Every gas station closed. Spearfish? Ditto. All along I-90 back to Rapid City, closed, closed, closed. Made it back to the motel with my stomach feeling just as empty as my gas tank. Next morning I put 5.4 gallons in my 5.3 gallon gas tank. 😀

    2. Been there, It was the best and worst place to be. Yes, I expect to return.
      For both reasons. A fool can't acknowledge even the most obvious awful.

    3. I love your accent and all your English mistakes cracks me up😂my wife is from Ecuador she also has an accent and messes up how to say words and things I love it❤

    4. I've heard some people call it ARKANSAS. The thing that puzzles me too is some cities in different states spelled the same but pronounced differently. When I move to another state, how am I supposed to know that? A few chuckles and you'll learn.
