This is the second post of my adventure documentation…and it will be (a little bit) shorter since it’s only covering the progress of a day. Today, Randi and I woke up and left Springfield, MO. We drove through Oklahoma, and man it was super boring. We drove for over nine hours, during which I’m clenching my steering wheel with intensity-making sure to stay as focused as possible because I don’t want to wipe out going 80+ mph. We are actually driving on route 66 now, we jumped on it around the last few hours driving out of Oklahoma. The cats were behaving as usual, mewing every once and awhile, they actually didn’t make a peep for the last couple hours. During the drive, I have snacks to help me keep alert- sunflower seeds, pretzels, trail mix, etc. I listen to a mix of podcasts and let my iPod shuffle. Today I practiced rapping to some beats I made a few weeks before I left Carroll County-raps about Sheetz MTO and beer and stuff. Our destination today was Amarillo, TX. We arrived around 5:30 pm and the sun was still shining. The Motel 6 we’re staying at is on the outskirts of the city. Everything is real big, there’s a lot of roads, highways, ramps, and goofy intersections. I feel intimidated like I’m on the outskirts of Baltimore- there’s a lot around me, but I feel that there’s probably so much more available if I knew my way around the core of the city.
