The Quest for the Demon Donkey

Continued from Day One

Day Two
Part 1

We were tired as we set forth the next morning. Yet thrilled with the adventure and just escaping our family, if only for a weekend.

Oklahoma is very red, red and green.
Say hello to Ok City




They do have hills, I will give them that. The first place we decided to stop was a scenic overlook. My husband thought we should stop and take a picture for whiteraven, even though she probably already has it with her Markeroni.





The overlook was very scenic and pretty,



But what got my attention was the fact that out of six other cars parked there, I was the only female. As my husband started prattling of explanation for this, I merely giggled and said, they are peeing in the woods. I was then called a spoil sport and we went on our way.

Ok, was rather easy going, it was overcast the entire way through. And we made good time, crossing the state in a few hours. Has anyone had Fried Pies? We didn't stop for them, we did however get some Jerky from Robertsons. Many of bright red sign influenced our decision, ugh, it was like eating slightly peppered, chewy paper. Never again!

We don't have "big" in Kansas. Our small towns are just that, small. Now Texas I don't think they really know the meaning of small. The Texas Motor Speedway was enormous!




And the scary part was that it was a race weekend. We hoped that we wouldn't get stuck in that traffic either direction. The way into Fort Worth was clear.The highways are high off the ground. We could never have something so high because of all the ice we get. It was fascinating to see. It's been a long time since I had been in this part of Texas.

My husband and I joked and tried to enjoy the sights, while I did my best not to have an anxiety attack caused by the traffic. One thing that lighten my mood was the man in the mini van that pulled onto the highway.

"Does he know his hatch is open?"
"He would have to be deaf not to know."

We laughed pretty hard about the man doing 70 mph with the mini van hatch open, nothing in its way, it could have been shut.

Hillsboro Texas was are first Texas stop. Here we had a late lunch with Texaswren and her husband. My husband and I had a great time, and were sadden we had to leave so quickly.

Dripping Springs and a demon donkey awaited us.

Cool! No, I don't have that one for Markeroni yet...data entry is by no means complete, though there's a possibility that it will be "done" sometime..."done" with quotes because they'll forever be adding new ones.

If you think you were on a "highway in the sky", you should see Miami! Their highways are in layers up to 5 high-scares the hell out of me!
