Wrong...I-40 through Ark is the absolute worst interstate between West Texas and Tennessee. It's an embarassment.

I-40 sucks through West Memphis and continues on.

Went to Oklahoma with my brother a few years back and it's like it's not paved but made out of concrete blocks. Every 20 feet you hit a small bump like a seam or crease. You spend miles hearing bump-bump.....bump-bump......bump-bump......bump-bump......bump-bump....... and feeling the car/truck slightly bounce. More annoying than anything else.

No offence, but you need to get out more. I-40 through Ark is about the only place I won't try to drink a cup of coffee. It's like being on a tractor - better to drink beer out of a can than a bottle...

It's like the whole state is made out of expansion joints.

Agreed. I ruined a few CD's going through that stretch of roadway. I-540 is nice though.

Gotta love I-10!

We drive to NOLA quite a bit. I still can't believe they have that stretch of highway running through Alabama that's still down to one lane for like 10 miles.

It's really pretty in the fall as the leaves change and all the creeks are running.

Pig trail is a fun ride. Motorcycle or sports car.

NW Arkansas and the Ozarks are beautiful. SE Arkansas between Little Rock and Memphis: not so much.
