Today we began in Tucumcari, NM, and ended in Oklahoma City, OK. We had mostly cloudy skies, a little bit of light rain, some lightening strikes visible in the distance and mild temps. Today’s excitement was crossing into Texas, the fascinating drive through the Texas Panhandle and then crossing into Oklahoma. For a drive of this nature, we’re really not looking for any more excitement than that.
We stopped into a Walmart in Elk City, OK, and from that experience, I can only conclude that Oklahoma is doing a great job of vaccinating their people. Most of the employees were wearing a mask but NONE of the customers were. I can only conclude that they are all vaccinated since unvaccinated people would be wearing a mask. Right?
Day 3 miles driven was about 380. This puts us about halfway to our destination. Downhill from here.
