Guest Blog Post: RV Travel to Oklahoma City
Our friends and guest bloggers, Tom & Georgie, kept a blog of their RV travels this past year. You can enjoy their blog at Georgiesgoingwest.blogspot.com. Here is an excerpt about traveling to Oklahoma City.
We arrived in Oklahoma City about 4 today after a relatively easy drive from Amirillo. The driving was all on Interstate 40 and not much in the way of hills or curves and in fact, not much of anything. Tomorrow we will do some exploring here in Oklahoma City and plan to visit Stockyard City, the world’s largest stocker/feeder livestock market. Besides the livestock there are all sorts of shops to provide products for the “real” cowboy. There is also a restaurant there that as been in operation for 80 years called the Cattleman’s. It open at 6AM!
At a quick glance it appears there is a lot to explore in Oklahoma City. Where to next?? I am not sure other than it will be in a continued easterly direction.
Below are a few pictures from our drive today. Not thqt they show you much, but that is the point of why we haven’t been taking many pictures or attaching them to the blog. I expect we should get some good pictures tomorrow.
About Tom and Georgie: My wife and i enjoy traveling in our 2000 32′ Class A Itasca Suncruiser. So far we have logged over 50,000 miles in it and still feel there is much of this great country of our that we want to see.
Last summer/fall we embarked on a two month trip from Vermont to 12 National Parks in the west and also stops in several western cities. We left in Early August and returned in early October logging over 6,600 miles on the RV and many more on our Ranger pickup truck tow vehicle. I maintained a blog with pictures that was updated almost daily and should be a great resource for anyone considering a similar trip. During the trip, we took full advantage of the benefits provided by the RV mode of travel. No fixed schedule or itinerary, no reservations we had to keep, if we wanted to stay longer at a particular location, we did.
