The Express Ranch….


We visited the Express Ranch in Yukon, Oklahoma, located just north of Route 66. As soon as we arrive, Leo has to take a break from riding in his car seat to relax next to the barn.
This looks like he is all alone, but both Mom and Gammi were just out of the shot with out stretched arms to catch Leo.
Inside the barn were lots of equipment displayed and some antique desks and chairs.
This coach is huge as you can see with Tamara and Norm standing next to it.
Norm had no luck coaxing this big guy up close for a nose rub.


This is by the old red barn in Arcadia Oklahoma.
We spotted this out house and you know Norm….
“Do you have any T.P.?”
This old Ford Model A or T, I don’t know was a part of a group of old cars going to California on route 66. The wheel spokes are made out of wood and the head lights had a lavender color to them.
This big guy and a couple of others like him were nearby on the way back home.


This is a place called Pop’s on route 66 east of Edmond Oklahoma. You can buy just about any kind of soda pop ever made. They have a nice place to eat with good food also.
This roof structure is huge and mostly free standing. I wondered how well it would hold up in a storm. They sell gas and diesel fuel for a fair price.
We drove east on route 66 and visited this big round barn and I realized this is about the only photo I took of the barn. Norm is checking the view from the second floor.
I have no idea what this is, but it looked cool.
This is the inside on the second floor, they do dances and parties here.


Thanks to our friend Todd, we found this trail system with a parking lot right next to where our son Paul works. It was pretty much empty so we had it all to ourselves.
Leo forgot to bring his hat, so Norm gave him her ball cap to use, but he had to give it back.
I think he is telling his Gammy to tell his Pappy to get out of those rocks.

He is always (almost) a happy baby..

5/1/07 No miles today


Yesterday, as we were heading west on I-70 we watched as a truck, an eighteen wheeler heading east bound, blew a tire on the rear of the flatbed trailer. The tire blew up and out away from the trailer. If someone would have been passing the truck, it could have been bad. A huge chunk of the tire laid in the road on the inside lane. No travel today as Norm finally gave in to her migraine and slept till noon. She is up and around now, but not quite back to her feisty self yet. We are holding our breath as thunderstorms and high winds are in the area. This is a nice campground, very quiet, wooded and it has a ten acre pond. Lots of wide open space.
