The Rock stars in Arkansas making it all academic at UAMS

 

Arkansas used to be nicknamed The Land of Opportunity and the team on the Road to 50 States certainly tried to take advantage, as they always do. As is often the case, they spent their time in the state capital, as it's often where interviews are situated. This was no exception at Little Rock, where they visited the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and interviewed Dr. Shuk-Mei Ho. Having gotten some further schooling on the next big thing in pharma, they still felt there was a mountain to climb on their quest, so they headed to Pinnacle Mountain State Park, where there was some rural splendor that they admired from ground level and with the drone. After this, it was a lengthy drive to St. Louis, Missouri that took them well into the night. Albert had a hard day in Arkansas. First, he was denied access to the University parking lot in the Tesla, then he tried to take his temperature with a QR scanner rather than the digital thermometer. Must have been fatigue. No wonder he was doing push-ups to stay awake during the last Tesla charge after dark.
