DEAR ABBY: I took an assignment with my company that posted me to Hong Kong for two years. My adult children, ages 21, 26 and 29, were supportive, although my youngest was not especially happy about it. We video chat with our kids, trying to stay involved as much as possible.

OPINION: Detailed travel accounts

posted: 03/26/2017 1:53 a.m. Discuss

The history of travel has always intrigued me. Recently friends sent me two interesting accounts which provide background on Arkansas travel history. Bill Sayger of Brasfield in Prairie County gave me a 1922 article in which Bob Wilder recalled his long association with the Memphis & Little Rock Railroad. Harold Coogan of Mena shared a 1920 article about an 80-mile trip through the Ouachita Mountains from the Hot Springs area to Mena. Both accounts remind us that our ancestors faced many challenges while traveling about the Natural State.
