We have never traveled with anyone before and we had a very good experience with Terry and Caroline. It was nice that we both had Verizon phones so we could call back and forth. Stopped a couple times at rest areas and pulled into the Tucumari Elks Lodge. I heard someone call my name but Caroline was inside her Rv. Turned out it was George and Janice some really good friends that we have known since the 2002 Escapade in Van Wert.

They are also headed to the Escapade and were staying overnight. We all decided that the "boys" should take us out for Mother's Day.

I tried to find a restaurant or cafe from my GPS but most of them were closed or the phone number was wrong. I got one really nice lady at a wrong number and she recommended K Bob's just down the street. Since the bartender at the Elk Lodge had recommended the same one - that's where we went. Glad we did! It was great - The boys and Caroline got steak and Janice and I got salmon. It was so good that we went back for the Salad/Soup Bar alone on Monday night.

George and Janice took off Monday morning as they are on the way to visit family on the way to Sedalia. The rest of us stayed and slept in and read.

Tuesday morning we hit I-40 for the TX/OK border.
