The Road to Oklahoma

UntitledIt’s been quite a while since we’ve done an almost 1200 mile cross-country, gotta-get-there, drive-till-you drop road trip.  So while we didn’t actually drive-till-we-dropped (we’re way too old for that!), we have had a couple of long days behind the windshield as we moved from our August SOWER project (Eastern WV) to our September project (NE OK).   Wanna come along?
We set out from West Virginia, drove through the panhandle of Maryland on I68 (so beautiful – so HILLY).  We actually drove the entire length of I68 and lost count of the runaway truck ramps that we passed. Geez, they make me nervous!

And dale
Road to OK
through cities
Louisville Skyline
over rivers
Crossing into Illinois
and through construction zones.
Hello, Indiana
And more construction zones.
More construction
(I’m generally too tense when we’re in the actual cattle chute type construction to snap pictures!).
All in all, it was more good road than bad, more light traffic than busy, and certainly more open road than city driving! The mountains eventually gave way to the corn fields of Indiana
IL Fields
and eventually we made it to a lovely Corp of Engineers campground (Rend Lake) where we are enjoying a quiet evening, an electric hook-up and air conditioning!

(These 90+ degree days are hard on everyone, but when you live in (essentially) a tin can – that A/C is critical!)
Here are some shots from our first two days on the road…..

One more full day to go (which involves getting through/around St. Louis!) and then a short day on Thursday as we move into the project – New Life Ranch, Frontier Cove, in Adair, OK.

Thanks for coming along! Gotta get to bed now – someone likes to get an early start!

Sweet Dreams!

One thought on “The Road to Oklahoma”

  1. Did you trim (butcher) the jade plant? Ugh!

    Know what you mean about construction zones, for some reason I get them all when I am driving, hence the totaled RV in Alaska in 2016. 1,200 miles is a long way, but for some reason we SOWERs gravitate towards them to get where we wanna be!
