Tuesday we drove through the lovely countryside of Iowa and Missouri. The hills are gently rolling, with ripening fields and wooded farmsteads. The trees are starting to turn colors and looking vibrant in their oranges and yellows. Then we hit Kansas City. I hate driving through Kansas City. The traffic is so heavy, and there is always construction somewhere. But we made it through without any incidents. We spent the night just south of Ottawa.
Wednesday we drove on in to OKC. We had a vigorous northwest wind. All the way to Wichita it was hitting us full on broadside, giving Richard a real workout keeping the motorhome in our lane. Once we got to Wichita, the road turned from southwest to south and the wind pushed us on into OKC.
We are settled in and looking forward to visiting with family and friends.
