Outdoors Wake-Up Call: Arkansas Flash Floods

What a tragedy! We're not even sure yet the names or ages of the victims...nor do we know the full details of the circumstances that led to these outdoor enthusiasts losing their lives in the other Arkansas Outback. There are certainly a number of questions that could arise from this overnight horror concerning the preparation of campers and actions/inaction of park authorities. Whatever direction this story takes, it is definitely a wake-up call to those who like to get out to remote areas and enjoy the outdoors!

Please, if you are planning on going to remote locations, be considerate of weather conditions and how they could affect the areas you will be visiting! Go prepared and with a plan! And have fun.

Our hearts go out to the families and friends affected by this terrible event.
