Sep 1, 2012 - September 1, 2012 – Oklahoma City, Yukon, El Reno, Kingfisher, Guthrie and Edmond, Oklahoma

September 1, 2012 – Oklahoma City, Yukon, El Reno, Kingfisher, Guthrie and Edmond, Oklahoma This morning I started out by visiting Bricktown in OKC. It was a dilapidated area of OKC which is in the process of being reclaimed. There are some really nice townhouses that have been built for yuppie type folks and the OKC minor league baseball team has their stadium there. There are restaurants and clubs in the area so that it is an entertainment area for OKC. The 1st thing on the agenda was a statue of Mickey Mantle who was from Oklahoma. His...

August 31, 2012 – Choctaw, Prague, Stroud, Chandler, Warwick, Luther, Arcadia, Edmond and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma This morning I attended Dick Manning’s funeral. It was held at the 1st Baptist Church in Choctaw which is the church, I believe, for which he did the stained glass windows. The service was a nice one. Several people recounted how Dick always greeted people with “Como esta usted tennis shoe”. Roughly translated that means How are you kid (ked). Some wondered if they are even still making Keds, but it was Dick’s way to play with...

Aug 30, 2012 - August 30, 2012 – Sallisaw to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

August 30, 2012 – Sallisaw to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma This morning they are reporting that New Orleans got 7.86” of rain in one day which is a new daily record. Their last daily record was 4.5” during Katrina in 2005. They are being saved by the new pumping stations plus the fact that the Mississippi was 11’ low so the fact that it came up 5’ in the space of a few hours has not threatened flooding from the River itself. They are glad to see the Mississippi coming up. Every day that the river is closed it has a $300,000,000 impact on the...

Jul 31, 2012 - Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum

Oklahoma City is a city of growth, tragedy and a resilient people. It was also hot! We were at Tinker Air Force Base in their RV park. It is very nice on the edge of a fishing pond but the Rv's are very, very close together. There were no pull thru's so we were concerned about backing the rig in tight quarters. Yet Jim is getting really good at it and I am getting good at hand signals and directing him. On the second day we blew out the electrical in the motorhome. It was cooler outside than in the rv as we waited for the circuit breakers...

Jul 18, 2012 - Elvis Has Left The Building ! - Gone to Oklahoma City

As sad as it was to leave Elvis behind, we headed West out through Arkansas and Oklahoma on I40. We stopped on the West side of Oklahoma City for the night. The girls have developed a habit of staying up late at night watching TV, then sleeping until noon the next day when we travel. They are on the hide-a-bed, so after we get up and prepare to leave, we just wake them, move them into our bedroom, and hit the road. We all get together for lunch along the way. When it gets hot during the morning, Cal turns on the generator so the AC...

Our Oriental Odyssey

Jun 11, 2012 - The LONGEST Day

We knew when we planned this trip that today would be a long haul on the road. Our logic was that going as far as Oklahoma City would allow us some time around Albuquerque tomorrow. So, I was up BEFORE 5am this morning and we were on the road by 6am. Everyone who knows me is well aware of the fact that I am not a morning person. The credit for me not hurting myself of anyone else before departure goes to Gary and Dillon. I was back asleep by the time we logged 10 miles on I-40. Our original GPS estimated arrival time was 4:30pm. Ten and a...

May 19, 2012 - Oklahoma City Memorial and Musesum

Today we set out for the Oklahoma City bombing memorial. We arrived just before 10:00 and took our time going through the museum. The tour started with the recording of a meeting, located across the street, that started at 9:00. At 9:02 you can hear the blast and the start of the events of April 19th 1995. Then we looked at the destruction and the stories from the survivors. Then we passed through the rescue and news reporting of the day. Later it was the collection of truck parts and court hearings to come. Hope and Healing was the last...
