I had to make a roadtrip to Ok this week. They are closing our plant in McAlester OK, so we had to go get equipment and bring it back here. They stopped Production Wed night and started tearing down the equipment Thursday morning. We left the yard at 9am, on Wed morning arrived back at 11:15am today. We had to be back here so they can have it set back up and ready for production again on Sunday night. We were on such a tight schedule to get back that we had to do this run as a team. I have not run team for 25 years. So I had very little sleep the past 2 nights. I did manage to take a few pics while in OK. These were taken in McAlester Ok.

Some neat pictures. I bet you are exhausted! That's a lot of driving in a short time frame.

Believe it or not they are not real. Shocked They are statues, but they sure look real. Very Happy

It's not all flat. That area has rolling hills. The pics of the water is from a huge lake, that is on both sides of the road.

I remember TEAM driving decades ago, across the Will Rogers Turnpike. The concrete expansion joints were keeping me awake...Thump, Thump, Thump. Finally fell asleep. For a little while. Something woke me up, didn't feel right. I peeked out the curtain. My co-driver didn't know how to downshift and instead kept pulling over to the shoulder to start over again in FIRST GEAR. Wow that was a long trip!

Glad you're back safe and sound. Runs like that make you appreciate your daily job!

Thanks T.W. and Wacker, I got a 2 1/2 hr nap after I got home. Then was asleep for 10 hrs last night. I feel better already. Will go to bed early again tonight, 5 am. will be here soon enough tomorrow. Next road trip will start at 6 am going to NH. and then up to Bangor Me. Not been up that far since the Aug. roadtrip. Very Happy at least I get paid for this Maine trip. Laughing
