Yes folks we are nuts! We left Santa Rosa at 8:30 Mountain time this morning and kept the wheels turning all day long. We caught some McD's biscuits in Tucumcari, and blasted on up to Texas. There the time changed to Central time but we ignored it for the time being.
We buzzed right on thru Dalhart not stopping for anything but the traffic light in the middle of town. I noticed it was after noon on Central time. Church was already out!
We did stop at Stratford, Tx a few miles on North, as they have kind of a mini gas war going with the newest station in town. We filled up brim full at $3.65!
In Guymon, Ok, Loyce decided on some KFC so I cooled my heals while she went inside. The dinner about drove Biscuit wild, but she doesn't get people food unless she picks up something we drop. I held on for Liberal, Ks, where I managed a small burger from Mc D's again. I really don't like them and twice in one day is about all I can really stand........
Of course Kansas goes on and on and on..... Again we made Pratt and headed up the diagonal Ks 61 for Hutchinson. It still seemed like it was a million miles on home, but we pressed on.
We finally arrived here in Overland Park about 9 PM central time. By now we had given up and changed the clock in the truck and my watch..... Of course the phone and GPS take care of themselves.
It was a 12 hour driving marathon pulling the utility trailer to boot.. Somewhere around 640 miles....That's enough for a big day, and I will not go much of anywhere tomorrow, but we are home! And do not have to sleep in the motel again tonight!!! Yea!
