Arkansas Warnings and Dangers

  • Obey Warning Signs

    When I visited the Queen Wilhelmina State Park warning signs like this were posted at several locations throughout the park, changing my plans for a nice hike. These signs remind us that the animals we see at parks like this, no matter how tame and friendly they seem, are still wild animals. Normally, if you do not bother them they do not bother...

  • Poison Ivy

    Poison Ivy seems to run rampant all throughout the entire state of Arkansas. Based on what I observed this trip, I think I have seen more poison ivy in 4 days than I have seen my entire life. But don't worry. A lot of the poison ivy is kind of away from the main trail, and as long as you look where you are stepping and wear socks along with tennis...

  • Tornados

    Watch weather! There are often tornadoes in Arkansas and there were several bad ones right before our trip. There was a severe thunderstorm warning while we spent the night on Mount Magazine and we all sat in the truck for a few hours until it passed. Take a weather radio!

Don't go in the woods without some kind of protection against the ticks. Tick fever is common here.

  • Ok..don't go out in the forest...

    Ok..don't go out in the forest posing as a deer..not even a moose is a good idea, ye hear me! You will, I repeat, You Will, get shot and probably get all the way to the kitchen before they realize what the hell they got in the fryingpan.
