“This area is probably one of the most beautiful areas of the country, and the opportunity for outdoor activities, the lakes, the mountains, the hiking, the canoeing, the good weather in the winter time. We do have to suffer in august a little bit for the heat but we live for the other 10 months of the year when it’s beautiful and we don’t have harsh winters, there’s lots of opportunity for recreation. We drove here, you know, you go 10 miles that way, you’re in the Ozark, if you go 10 miles that way you’re in the Ouachita Mountains, that’s very beautiful.
