OKC Area

Since we hadn’t disconnected while in Amarillo, we were able to leave pretty early.  Around noon we stopped at the Lucky Star Casino in Clinton which had gotten good reviews only to find a paved parking lot without any hookups and a sign that said “no firearms, no alcohol, no pets”.  Well, heck, we moved on.

Since we were only 90 miles away from Midwest City, OK (outside of Oklahoma City) we ventured on and arrived and were set up by 3:30 at the Elks Club.  We’ve stayed here a couple times before and still haven’t found the lodge opened.  It’s a very pretty spot…the whole place is grassed.  There’s electric and room for five rigs.  The downside is you are in the direct flight path for planes from Tinker AFB and it is NOISY as the planes pass over about every 15 minutes.


However, we were pleasantly surprised that there wasn’t even ONE overhead plane all night!!!  Maybe they don’t fly on Sundays; whatever the reason we had a quiet and pleasant night.

We called our local friends, The Smeals, and went out to dinner.

The Smeals were campers at Big Meadows the second summer we camphosted.  They had car trouble and we helped them out.  The Smeals were curious about the fulltime lifestyle and I lent them a book to read.  From that encounter in 2008 we’ve stayed friends, emailed and stopped to visit.  FYI…The Smeals are going fulltime RVing next December.

We went to dinner at Cheddars.  We’ve heard of this chain before but never stopped there before.  I thought it was a burger place, but it is more like the atmosphere of a Red Lobster or Olive Garden. They had a wide range menu.  I had a glazed salmon with rice and broccoli and the other three had Cheddars’ homemade chicken pot pie.  All the food was very tasty.  We’d go back.

We were able to watch a little local TV and went to bed early. 

Remember, you are loved.
