Motorcycle Ministry Trip

Bill and I are on a motorcycle ministry trip this week. We stopped in Vinita, OK at Clanton's Cafe for a second chance to sample the best homestyle cooking I've had in a long time. This time I sampled the chicken fried steak. Bill was absolutely correct in describing it as "the best I ever ate".

 Our Camp Site

We are camping in this hot,humid weather. However, the campground is wooded. Our tent is in between two trees along a hilltop that receives a breeze most of the time. Below is a picture of our "portable palace"

The Route Home

Bill and I packed up our camp Sunday, June 23rd, and rode east for home on Route 66 from Chandler, OK to Bristow, OK. After that we just rode the Will Rodgers Turnpike/Interstate 44 to the Missouri border. I-44 to Rolla, MO was an easy ride with the traffic streaming east at a good rate. Normally, we only stop for gas and lunch, but this trip home wasn't normal. Bill was feeling achy Saturday night, and Sunday morning he continued to feel ill. Thanks to fever reducer/pain relief tablets, he was able to ride his motorcycle. However, we were stopping  about every sixty miles so he could sit in air conditioning and rest. Thankfully, we arrived home safe and dry.
