Route 66: Amarillo, TX, to Tulsa, OK (17-of-20)

As you might guess, I’m on my way home. I’ll pull into my hometown on Monday evening. Today’s drive was uneventful as far as interesting tourist sites go. However, the highway is never boring, is it? There was a one-hour traffic jam west of Oklahoma City. There had been an accident and crews were clearing the rubble. I checked the news, but couldn’t find out how the accident victims were doing.

On my way into Oklahoma City, a rather large bird slammed into my windshield. Feathers went everywhere and I didn’t see anything in my rearview mirror, which indicates that he was pretty pulverized. It was a bit traumatic for me, and I said a Hail Mary for him. My dad says it’s a good thing my windshield didn’t crack. I just had to run the windshield-wiper fluid a bit. . .
