Day 3 of Adventure 4

December 17, 2017

At around 6:30AM we awoke to rain on the roof of the Stinger "B".  At around 8:00AM when we were ready to leave and opened the front curtain this was our view. I had hoped to take a walk through the rest stop and snap some pictures of the Route 66 building reproductions but not in the rain. Though at least it is not snow...:)


A quick snapshot through the windshield as we pulled out.


The view through our windshield as we
started west on I-44 this morning.


We crossed into Oklahoma around 11:30AM and there is no picture of the welcome sign because we never saw one.

More views through the front windshield of today's drive.

It was a long grey day today, especially for Tom driving. We had hoped to stop tonight and spend at least two days in this spot, a casino by Oklahoma City called the Lucky Star. They have free full hookups. We got here and found that they are very shallow parking sites that need to be backed into. Since, it is not anywhere we would stay for more then one night we are parked over on the side as it was not worth it to us to unhook the Jeep for one night. (A note for anyone with a 5th wheel the sites would not accommodate a 5th wheel with the truck hooked up.)

We put 337 miles behind us today and are now looking at tomorrow's route and a place we can park for a couple of days. It will probably be an RV park and we are contemplating one we have stayed at in Amarillo before, just not sure we want to go that far. We will see how we feel, mostly Tom since he is doing the driving, in the morning and decide from there.








Today was a happy day hope yours was too.
If you wish to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.

  1. You are right. Tom may only be behind the wheel but it does become tiring.
    Lots to see in Amarillo.
    Be safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Yes, there is a lot to see in Amarillo but Tom decided he felt good enough to keep going. So we breezed right through and on to Tucumcari, NM.

  2. It'll be nice for a break after a few days of driving hard. Hopefully the weather improves and you can enjoy a couple of days being in one place!

    1. So far the weather is not bad at all. We are in Tucumcari, NM and it feels good to stop and get organized. I always feel better when everything is in its place.

  5. We stayed at the Lucky Star Casino in the spring of this year for 3 nights and yes, had to unhook the truck. For 2 or 3 nights we didn't mind doing that. That is where that 'lady' (being kind here) drove into us in the parking lot. Other than that it was a good experience. We were on our way home.
    Taking your time is the best thing and I know you'll find a good spot for a couple of days. PS - we're Celebrating the Dance with you. :)

    1. I love that you are Celebrating the Dance with us...:)

      I think if it would not have been so dreary out we might have considered staying at the Lucky Star Casino for a couple of days but I also think we both just wanted to get a little farther down the road. (I forgot that was the place you had the fun with the "lady" who needed to park on top of you...:)...)
