First time: Late 1990s?
Last time: Summer, 2015

I don't remember the first time I ever went to Arkansas, but it was probably the first time I went on a road trip to the east. I'm guessing that would have been during the late 1990s. The last time I drove through Arkansas was in the Fall of 2012, when I drove to Atlanta. Every road trip east out of Oklahoma takes you into Arkansas.

I have several online friends that live in Arkansas, including Brian Green and Earl Green, who are unrelated. I met both Brian and Earl online through the website Digital Press in 2003, and in person at the first Oklahoma Video Game Expo (OVGE) later that same year.

A couple of years ago, the great retro arcade Arkadia Retrocade opened in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The family and I have visited Arkadia multiple times. The last time we visited was in the summer of 2015, when I sold (and transported) several arcade games to the fine folks at Arkadia. I know my machines are in good hands and I can always drive out there to play them!
