Well the plan is to stop at a friends farm in Paris Texas and park awhile and build him a house or something.

then head up to Beaver Lake when the weather breaks , probably through Texarkana or something.

You must be near there.

We usually stop at our son's house in Keller, Tx. then shoot up 35, right in OKC, thru Tulsa, then straight over on 44. We take the more pleasant way home. Down thru Rogers, Ark (near Beaver Lake), then right on 40, near Van Buren. After that it just depends on our time frame. That whole area is really nice.
I drove up to Van Buren, a few yrs. ago to buy a 1 owner '81 Ford truck. Love the area.

plus a bunch of other stuff.

That would be a good resource for Skoolies , every cabinet shop has them and you could probably get some cheap or free.
I have a bunch of raised panel cherry doors from when I ran a CNC machine in a high-end cabinet shop- thanks for idea!

What he said is true- Go around back and ask shop manager for rejects. Salespeople out front are clueless.

Holler when you come through!
If you're coming through Texarkana, you'll be passing through Fort Smith.
