Picture taken in the middle of the Oklahoma panhandle. As soon ad we croosed the Colorado border, Summer asks, Where are the Rockies?
We made it to Amarillo Texas right at dark lat night, filled up with gas at a truckstop and then went in search of a Walmart for supplies. Kris looked it up on her phone and said, as I drove, Which one? I said, Huh? The Walmart. She says, There are FIVE of them!
So we go to the nearest one and since it is already dark, I suggest we park it there over night... you'd never see two kids more excited to camp at a Walmart. Kris goes shopping amd the kids and I throw the football on one of the grassy ovals out in the middle of the parking lot! Good times.
Kris gets back, we eat and settle in for the night. The side door is still open b/c it is 60 degrees and a strong wind is owing thru the RV and it feels great. Kris won't have it, even with the screen door closed. I say, You and E are in the very back and Sum amd I are the ones up here over the driver's cab, by the side door. Nope, not having it. I say, If someone pokes there head up in here, they are gonna get a revolver stuck in their face... (pause) so after I close and lock the door... we close all the curtains and open a few more screened, sliding windows and go to bed.
It was actually chilly overnight. There were at least 8 other RVs in the Walmart parking lot. RVs overnight for free at almost all Walmarts. Kudos.
Nothing else very interesting to post. The only successful agriculture out here is irrigated and we see ALOT of cattle. It is truly amazing how the natives thrived in the upper texas and oklahoma panhandles but from my studies they followed the buffalo and the water. OH! One more thing, Ethan is taking medicine for a skin irritation and he is the king of backwash. I went to drink some bottled water and it tasted like cheap vodka! I looked at it and there, floating in the water, was his capsule, half melted! We hadn't left the lot yet so I spit it out, ugh. It took half a gatoraid to kill the... I wouldn't say flavor or taste... I'd call it gag.
We are driving west along the Arkansas River and the Rockies are obscured by clouds. We may park early today at a reservoir along the river and/or go see Bent's Old Fort.
