Day 2 Complete

We’re not quite as exhausted as we were last night, so we’re just going to relax and watch a little TV before going to bed.


We got off to an early start this morning. This was mostly due to my inability to sleep past 4:00 a.m. and unwillingness to keep trying. My helmsmen didn’t seem to mind though. At least, they didn’t say anything if it did bother them. We made it to Amarillo in excellent time.

Here are a few of the stats from today’s travels.

Tomorrow’s plan is pretty much the same as today’s: drive east on I-40. We’ll probably eat lunch around Oklahoma City and stop in Little Rock. 2 days down, 3 more to go. Almost halfway there…
