Talimena Scenic Drive - October 22nd - in Quachita national Forest

The Tulsa Smart People (smartusainsider) are considering doing a group drive/caravan down the Talimena Scenic Drive in the Quachita National Forest (Mena, AR to Talihena, OK). Would any of you in Arkansas area have an interest in meeting us at Mena, AR and then caravaning down the drive. We are thinking the end of September or first part of October in order to see the Fall colors. We would have lunch either at the beginning of the drive or stop at the Queen Wilhemena Lodge for lunch depending on time. My preference is to have lunch at the Lodge. This decision will be made in advance.
www.talimenascenicdrive.com to learn more about the drive.


I am working on specific plans now so would appreciate feedback soon.

Happy smarting,

Jill

CANCELLED as of October 21st.

Tulsa Smart People invite Arkansas Smart's to join us in driving the Talimena Scenic Drive. This drive goes from Mena, Arkansas to Talihena, OK. I'm planning to do the full drive but there are places where you can exit the drive along the way. The drive is 54 miles long with many places to stop and see the scenery.

Saturday October 22nd

Meet us in Mena, Arkansas at 11:30am, at ?????? (meeting place to be determined, ideas welcome)

Lunch at the Queen Wilhemena Lodge

If you have a FRS radio bring it along for communication.

We will leave from Broken Arrow at 8 am, so we should be to Mena by 11:30 am.

RSVP here or at the smartusainsider.com events page.

For more information please ask here or send me a PM.

Thanks,

Jill

I need to hear from people who are planning to attend this event. I'm trying to get a count of how many cars and people are coming. The Talimena Scenic Drive is a really beautiful drive along the ridge of the mountain.

Please post your RSVP here and if you are meeting us in Mena, Arkansas or in Broken Arrow, OK or if you want to meet us along the way we can figure that out as well.

This has been cancelled. 4 of the 6 smart's/owners who RSVP'd have had to cancel due to last minute conflicts.
We'll try the drive again next year.
Watch for future events.
