Hugoton, KS.

We finally left OKC this morning at 11:00 am, arriving here in Hugoton, KS at 7:30 pm. What should have been a 6 hour drive, as you can see turned out to be a bit longer. It all started by just trying to get out of OKC, an accident here, road construction there, and an unexpected detour put us out of the city an hour later. All was going well until we placed our faith in Google's hands. Our GPS led us astray (I know, blindly following a GPS is more than silly) but in our defense, we had a paper map, just not a very good one and we appeared to be heading correctly. Well as it turned out, we went a bit off course, but did end up making it safe and sound.  Now one thing, we don't really like travelling more than 4 hours at a time, but since this trip should have only been 6 hours, we didn't mind pushing it a little. However, 8 or more hours is just brutal on my bottom, not to mention I just get tired of driving after a while. All that being said, it's all part of the adventure and we do laugh about it as it's happening.

This was also our first time towing the car and it went off without a hitch. The motorhome towed it just fine and you could hardly tell it was even back there, thank goodness for the rear camera.

The last time we stayed in Hugoton, there was only one small RV Park, since then a new one has been built on the outskirts of town. The park is considerably nicer and the spaces much bigger than the old one.  Being outside of town it's also very quiet. Glad we found it.

We came here to have Thanksgiving with as many family members as we could get to come. We all met out at the old family homested, no one lives there now, but it is kept up for gatherings and such (more on the farm later)
Now it's time to go see the family and start getting the farm house ready for Thanksgiving. See ya soon!!!

Good to see you rolling again! Funny to see that you GPS torments you just like ours does!

Our GPS likes to send us on a wild goose chase too sometimes.
