This morning we got hitched up and again, pulled out about 9:45. Seems to be the best we can do!

After exiting the toll road at Hwy69, we stopped for a rest and lunch. Once on 69, we were wondering if we'd made a mistake! The road was so rough, we could barely go 55 on much of it, and the kitties were complaining much of that time. But, supposedly, it's the fastest way to Durant, OK, our next stop. Oklahoma also seemed to get instantly windy!
We crossed over Lake Eufaula, which I hear is a good vacation spot. Today, the water looked very brown... Not sure if this is normal or what!

We drove through a number of small OK towns. In one, we saw a Braum's, next to a large parking lot, so we swung in for a cool treat and to get some low-carb bread.
We arrived at the Choctaw KOA about 5:30, and seemed to fill the last available site! The park was full with a rally and lots of trailers... Maybe there to see Ronny Milsap in concert. We saw a Landmark, Sundance, North Trail, and a Cyclone!
After getting set up, we ate leftovers and the Tony went to the casino to play, while I chilled in the rig and did some work.
Our site, the last one on the row.
He returned, a little poorer, but he said he had fun. He ran into the folks in the Landmark, Gene & Song, whom had been at the National Rally in Goshen, and we met them at the Texas/Oklahoma gathering one night. They are making their way back to San Antonio.
Soon after Tony returned, we went to bed. This is the last night of our Summer Trip. :(
