October 1 - 7, 2012 "Oklahoma City Area"

Part of our ritual when leaving Colorado is keeping one eye on the weather. When they predict snow, we leave one day before, which is what we did last year. Since it worked well then, we followed the same protocol this year, and the weather followed suit. We pressed on to Oklahoma City with an overnight boondocking in Hays, KS at Wally World. As we turned south off of I-70 onto I-135, the strong winds from the north pushed us to Wichita in record time, and ultimately arrived at our destination in Oklahoma City by 4 pm. 

 CC has been busy helping her mom “streamline” her communication network, and setting up her new computer. By bundling with Cox, she was able to shave about $70 per month from her expenses, AND move up to digital TV and a 15 Mbps connection to the internet, as she had been on dial-up since the discovery of dirt; they still have dial-up?

We have an appointment to have a few items repaired at McClains RV on October 22, and hopefully they will complete the repairs in one day, provided they don’t need to order parts. What repairs? The ice maker is not making ice, the King-Dome satellite system is not connecting to any satellite, and the electric element is not heating the Aqua-Hot, so we must run the diesel burner for heat and hot water. All these are minor non-essential items, but we like to stay on top of things, and not let the list get too long.

We also hope to catch up with long-time friends while we are in the area, and fully understand sometimes “life” takes priority over visiting with a couple of homeless gypsies. So, there you have our comings and goings for the immediate future. Thanks for taking time to check in on us and until next time, take care and stay well…………….
