Location: Sugar Creek Casino in Hinton, Oklahoma
This morning I woke up to the alarm at 7 o'clock and Yuma and I decided we would eat breakfast on down the road. Here is the view of the Texas prairie from my bedroom window this morning.
Today was a day of taking state roads north towards Oklahoma City. My morning became 1 o'clock and I was starving. Breakfast never happened. My windshield is so dirty I didn't take many pictures. The state roads in Texas are in nice condition, maybe a little wavy at times making me feel like I was on a roller coaster.
Heading due north most of the day thank goodness because there was a 20 mph wind with gusts coming from the south. So the wind was beneficial most of the way but the short times I had to travel due east were white knuckle time holding the WL straight. Nice roads and very little traffic in Texas, just the way I like it. :))
I had planned on reaching Hinton, Oklahoma by 2 o'clock but missed it by an hour. Drove up to Lorne and Sues' place right at 3 o'clock. Had no problems the entire trip except for Yuma jumping at the windshield trying to kill flies. I left the screen door open last evening and collected quite a few that needed killing.
I've met Lorne and Sue a number of times in Arizona, but this winter they spent their time on the ocean in Mexico and are just now heading back to Manitoba, Canada. They also have a blog, A Place Called "Away". Today is beautiful with clear skies and 70 degrees. We sat on the north side of their MH and chatted till 7 o'clock.
It was a long travel day and time now to finish my blog and pull out the grill and get dinner going. I missed Survivor last night because I couldn't make it here and had to stay in the remote countryside of Texas. Dolly filled me in though :))
See you later.
We enjoyed the afternoon with you and Yuma.ReplyDelete

Thanks Jeff. I'm going slow picking my routes. Nice not to hurry. Better weather is coming each day.Delete
It is always a treat to meet up with our friends along the routes we travel. It has been 4 years since we've seen Lorne and Sue and look forward to the next time.ReplyDelete
Dolly will be trimming someone's hair when he gets home and I don't mean Yuma's! haha That pix just shows the extent of your winds. :)
I had just washed my hair and couldn't do anything with it:)) Been a few years for me too. I was glad we could make it happen.Delete
