|We got a late start on Thursday, 7-24-14. But we finally hit the road and arrived in Sayre, OK (approx 410 miles) about 6 PM (Central Time). So that was not too bad. We were both quite tired from the preparation for departure so we did nothing but get a little organized. We never want to take the organization to an extreme so we will always have a little bit of "mess" but we are comfortable.
The city of Sayre has one public park that includes RV spots with hook-ups. The park includes baseball diamonds, a pool, miniature golf, an 18 hole golf course, a rodeo area, restrooms(with showers) and 2 fishing ponds (free fishing).
Rio, the cat, traveled comfortably and seemed HAPPY to get in the trailer at our destination.
Friday morning, 7-25-14, we set our sights on a Ft. Smith, AR and arrived about 3:30 PM (approx 325 miles). It was a good trip across Oklahoma. We always think of Oklahoma as dry, dry, dry. But it was very green and quite beautiful. Our goal was to get to Ft. Smith so we did not see anything unless it was on I-40. But we will stop on the return trip to spend some time exploring.
Tom had the job of driving and there was a lot of construction all through Oklahoma. There was a lot of wind too. He will be glad to stay put for a couple of days. Being a passenger is great.
Once again, Rio, the cat, traveled comfortably and seemed HAPPY to get in the trailer at our destination. We do not have to make stops for him :)
We are actually staying at a KOA in Alma, AR just east of Ft. Smith. So we have internet access and full hook-ups. Our spot is in a wooded area so it is a very little bit like camping. We will sight see for the next couple of days and I will update you before we leave town.
Just for info - we are alternating our "stay locations" between "civilized" RV parks and state parks (to enjoy the natural beauty along our route) on our way to the Outer Banks, NC, so I will only update when there is internet available. I have not yet mastered the art of including photos so there are none so far but I will get up to speed.
More later - Pam
