From Russellville on highway 7, across the Arkansas river and head into a small river town by the name Dardnelle, the city had that old-fashioned and picturesque charm to it. Right as soon as I got off the bridge, i took an immediate right and cruised through a neighborhood. I set my speed to thirty miles per hour and eventually wound up at this stop sign connecting to highway 22. I took a left and merged into the traffic, and just my cruise control to get a better view of the surrounding terrain.
I had an incredible view of the lake to my right side, and barely any traffic in sight just a laid back and welcoming road. I eventually fell out of yell county and onto Logan county. I passed through a small town of Delaware and saw some people fixing up an old shop, the town was so small there were only two shops and both were not up and running to say the least. Before I knew it i was out of Delaware. I decided to go exactly six miles and then to just to turn around and head back to campus. I just cruised through, not going to particularly fast, and no the slowest either. Just meandering down the river valley road, i hit the town of New Blaine when i hit my six miles. IO ended up at a Mom’n’Pop type restaurant called The “Dinner Bucket”, well i was feeling Hungary anyways, and since i was surveying the land anyways why not survey the food too? I stepped out of my truck and walked near the entrance, there was basset hound just lounging on a rocking chair. I opened the doors to the restaurant, and immediately went for a menu, the prices were so reasonable! I could afford to eat like a king for lunch so i ordered a long compiled list to sample all their wares. I had to wait almost thirty minutes, because they make their own burgers(but it was worth the weight). The Little Restaurant had the perfect Backwoods Arkansas theme to it, and the workers and cooks were friendly. People all from the little quaint community were running in and out of the store. When my food was finally prepared the cook had to get a box and put all my food in it, and because i was on the go. I got back to my truck with all the food, and just broke down and ate like half of it. The food was amazing and took me by surprise. It had the perfect mix of everything, almost as if they used a secret ingredient or a secret sauce.
