Day 1: On the Road.
All in a days time (well 13 hours to be exact)… Started in Atlanta, drove through Alabama, cut across Mississippi, dashed through the corner of Tennessee near Memphis, then headed north through Arkansas and into Oklahoma, arriving in our nights destination of Stillwater, OK.
It’s amazing all the weather we’ve encountered within a day. We started in out in the cool Atlanta fall morning, we encountered some rain in Arkansas, then back to hot and sunny up to 87. During our last stretch into Stillwater it began to rain again.
Upon arrival, Dad and I were both tired, so we opted for a frozen microwave dinner over a restaurant. Our hotel is equipped with a kitchen, making it feel more like home. So we can relax while we eat, and I can of course blog, and he can watch the weather channel and news.
Tomorrow will be another long day, but not quite as far, we’re aiming to make it to Holbrook, Arizona. If we’re lucky, like today We’re hoping to make good time again, and then Saturday we’ll be in Los Angeles!!
