Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Oklahoma

We’re in Oklahoma after another 200-mile drive, which wouldn’t have been bad except for the fact that I had to deal with high winds all the way. The winds were coming from the south as we traveled east, and there were gust up to 45 mph.
These class A motorhomes are not at all aerodynamic, it’s like driving a breadbox down the highway.
We bypassed a state campground as we first crossed into Oklahoma, and we decided to drive for another hour to the next state campground. Glad we did because a big storm came up last night and hit the area of the first state campground with hail the size of baseballs along with threats of a tornado.
We could see the lightening flashes from our campsite but the storm missed us totally.
There’s a rodeo in town tonight and tomorrow night at 8:00 pm. We hope to take in the rodeo but the skies are threatening with a chance of thunderstorms.
Our Internet connection is very poor because we are in a valley so I can’t really post any pictures, in fact it took forever to post just this text.
We will be here in Oklahoma for four days (Hope I can learn the song by then). There is a river walk in the city so we will be spending at least one day exploring.
