Apr 6, 2018 - Oklahoma City to Sayre OK

Yesterday was a day of travel from Memphis to Oklahoma City. I'm not sure I have ever been there but I'm quite sure I don't want to go back. Construction was on all the interstates through the city and I believe we circled the city multiple times and hit every one of the construction zones. We left the motorhome at the Mercedes repair shop, which by the way, was in the middle of downtown OC. While it was being repaired we took little truck and in addition to walmart, now its hard to pass by a Hobby Lobby. 4 hours later and a few dollars...

Mar 11, 2018 - the second day

We didn't sleep well last night. The gusty wind kept waking us up and we wondered if it would affect the drive. We've seen too many photos of RV's and trucks rolled over on the highway because of high wind. It was windy when we began to drive, but what we should have worried about was snow. I-40 rises to over 7,000' elevation east of Albuquerque and that's when we encountered the nasty white stuff. It did not stick to the pavement, but gathered in little piles beneath the window wipers. After about one hundred miles the elevation eased and...

Aug 15, 2017 - On the way to Sayre, OK

Our first day saw us hit the road at 10:45 AM. THAT WAS A LITTLE LATE. Our goal was Sayre, OK (about 410 miles) where we planned to stay in a city/county park that has RV parking with water and electricity. We made it to Sayre about 6:45 PM but we missed the exit and I proceeded to get confused in the navigation so we did not park until about 7:15 PM. Rio the cat was not happy about all that time in the truck. I made a quick dinner of leftovers (I had to take everything out of the fridge at home – or OH MY) and we listened to the Dodgers...

Jul 25, 2014 - Pam and Tom - On the Road

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...

Sep 15, 2012 - Alibates - Lake Meredith

Travel day across the panhandle of Texas and then into Oklahoma and there just happened to be a NPS site only 25 miles off the interstate in Texas. So, detour to Lake Meredith and Alibates Flint Quarries – 2 stamps. We didn’t do much at Lake Meredith but got lots of info at the Alibates Visitor Center. The rangers weren’t too busy so they had plenty of time to chat. Alibates flint is beautiful – stones streaked with maroon, cream, chocolate and gold look like candy or slabs of bacon. Indians dug the flint by hand or with bone tools to use...

Jun 10, 2008 - We continue westward

We departed from the Flying J at 07h30 and headed westward on Interstate 44. Drove for about an hour and stopped at a rest area to have breakfast. We had never realized that Missouri was within the Ozark Mountain range. The drive was quite nice and scenery was very different than the previous day (land was very flat between Chicago and St. Louis). When we arrived in Oklahoma City we stopped over at the local Camping World but as our luck was going they also did not have our part in stock. Took the road again and headed west on Interstate...

Feb 12, 2008 - Tuesday. Driving through Texas, staying overnight at Sayre, Oklahoma & finally - Arkansas

We had been looking for a truck wash and found one late last night at Panhandle, Texas. It was a do-it-yourself type and the water had been shut off around 1800 due to freezing temps. We were lucky to find one stall that worked with light pressure water...cold water. Together we managed to get most of the salt, mud and sand of our vehicles. Much better. We then moved on a tad more miles and stopped at a Flying J truck stop. They welcome RVers to stay the night. We did. We also sleep well to the rhythm of trucks traveling by. Thanks to Joe...
