Eureka Springs Day Three

it was nice and warm when we got up this morning. Not cold like yesterday morning.

Allan cooked us a nice breakfast of eggs and pancakes. There’s something about camp food that just makes it taste so good!

Minis in the Ozarks kicks off today so we went to the convention center to do registration and join a bunch of our mini friends for the kick off drive down the pig trail.

So much fun and the scenery on that drive is just breathtaking!  We stopped at the little store that sells the cool stickers and tee shirts, then we went to eat at a country store cafe in Oark. I don’t remember the name but we ate there on last years drive also. Today we sat with a couple of nice people from the Chicago area and enjoyed visiting with them and trading mini trip stories.

Allan had a bacon cheeseburger with bbq sauce. I had a grilled ham and cheese sandwich. We each had buttermilk pie and ice cream for dessert.

We were finished before most of the group so we said goodbye to our friends and headed back.

As with most all of these mini drives, it’s all fun and games until someone throws an error code. This time it was Buster. Damn!  The display showed us a sad engine picture and then he went into reduced power mode. He was NOT a happy camper going through the twisters with ordinary vehicles on his bumper. Poor fellow.

Wr stopped at O’Reilly’s in Huntsville, AR to have the codes read. We had lost first cylinder.  Rough ride.

Eventually we crept back to the convention center and talked to a nice man from Mini Of Little Rock. He told us it’s okay to drive in limp mode unless error specifically says otherwise. So we will have Buster taken care of when we get back home. No more group drives for us this trip though.

Back to the camp ground Allan built us a nice fire because temperatures are dropping. It is supposed to be in the 30s tomorrow morning around get-up time.
