Day 87- Back to Camping

Day 87- Back to Camping

Hi Folks,

Levi, De Anna and I all got up early to drive out to our pick-up spot before she had to head to work. It was kind of hard to get up since it was still dark out, but we got one more bagel and some coffee on our way out. It was hard to say bye to family. We had such a great time with James and De Anna, and they treated us so well. But, back on the road it was.

It took us a while to get out of Muldrow. We first stopped at the Piggly Wiggly grocery store so I could go to the restroom. Well, on our way out, we were stopped by Patsy who told us she read our article in the newspaper that morning. So, of course we had to get a paper and read it. As we finished, this older man came up and asked us what we were up to. When we told him we were in the paper, he acted like we were full on celebrities. He quickly bought a paper and had us sign it with HIS pen. All his commotion attracted Patsy again and another woman to come over and get our "autographs." It was quite funny. We kept walking and were then stopped by the Major of the town, Catherine, who gave us some money and told us to check out the park. It was really nice too, definitely a highlight of the town. Before leaving town we waited 20 minutes for the library to open, but then realized that wednesday is the one day of the week they opened at one.

We made it out of Muldrow and stopped for a snack at a gas staion. The woman there was real  nice and shared pictures of her recent skydiving adventure and motorcycle purchase. We were stopped by a family in a car who said they didn't have any cash to donate but the lotto ticket they handed us was a winning $7 one! Strange and awesome donation. Then we made it to Salisaw and ate at this chain pizza place that was no good. But, we were full and thats what really mattered :) There was a library there that we spent an hour at. We made a few more miles in the evening before we pulled off and made it through some crazy thorny plants to a nice flat spot for camping.

Getting closer and closer,

Shikira
