We were “On the Road Again” at 9:30. We had strong winds to deal with all day long.
We knew we would be crossing two state lines, so Super Driver practiced his part in the State Line Celebration several times. He does love those air horns! I didn’t need to practice my part. I am very proficient at “Yahooing.”
It wasn’t too long before we crossed into Oklahoma and performed our State Line Celebration. We were immediately confronted with a terrible road. Yikes. What a difference between Colorado and Oklahoma! After a few miles, however, we were on a new concrete road.
“Honk, honk! Yahoo!” We arrived in Texas. Everything is bigger in Texas...including the wind. Wow! Bill was really hanging on and so was I. By the time we got to Amarillo, it had calmed down some.
We stopped at Walmart for diesel before driving on to Sam’s Club to park for the night. But it was not to be...we missed the exit. We decided to go on to Flying J to see if they had extra RV parking spaces. Nope! Instead of retracing our tracks to Sam’s Club, we took Hwy. 287 to Clarendon. A few miles further on down the highway we came to a Rest Area with plenty of room to park.
We weren’t able to get the Bronco game on our TV, so we kept up with their progress via the Internet.
Today, we traveled 297 miles.
