It will be below freezing at night, probably 50% of the time or more. Might have some snow, though worst will be in Jan-Feb if things are normal.
Hot Springs to Buckhorne is probably about 25-30 miles, going thru Douthat SP and across 39. Good road, light traffic, about 1/2 crooked.
Via Sulphur Springs Road (rt 606) about 30 miles, EXTREMELY crooked, winding, narrow and DANGEROUS during winter conditions.
Via US 220 thru Covington, 40 miles from Buckhorne to HS. 15 miles interstate, rest 2 lane, some mountain.
All miles are approximate.
I'd call your future employer and ask if they know someplace up there to put your RV. You will definitely want hookups. If we don't go to Key West for the winter I winterize my RV no later than Halloween.
Any way you go to HS will be up hill and down hill leaving there.
If I can answer any questions feel free to ask.
