Friday, March 20, 2015 – First day of Spring
Another long and uneventful day. Always glad to say that when I drive for hours on end. Today, I drove 500 miles from Weatherford, Oklahoma to Sullivan, Missouri. I am now at the Walmart for the night.
I left very early at 6:30 am this morning so I could get through Oklahoma City as soon as possible. Last year, I remember there was a lot of road construction going on all the way through the west side of the city on I-40. Fortunately, it is all done and I had no problems maneuvering through the many turns in that city.
Had breakfast at a truck stop on the east side of Oklahoma City on I-40 and then continued on until stopping for lunch at a truck stop outside Springfield, Missouri.
I have always had a soft spot in my heart for Missouri. I graduated from high school and college in Missouri. I also spent six weeks of boot camp in the U.S. Army at Fort Leonard Wood in southern Missouri. Not that it was the best time of my life, but it was memorable. The Ozark hills of southern Missouri always look nice
The weather is very nice. Cool but comfortable. We had a gorgeous orange sunset with the light clouds over head.
See you later.
