When I got to Stillwater I expected only to be resting for one day. But like all plans it had to change. When I checked out my boys on the rest day I saw that Star-Buck had a swollen spot on his side and that he was tender on the rub marks. I immediately knew that I was going to have to rest for a longer-term break. So I contacted Cara Shelton that I had been talking to about Hosts on my travels. She gave me a number to call and that lady called her cousin and got me a really nice place to stay till Star-Buck heals up and the winter storm passes. God is good
I’m visiting my Sister and Nephew and their families close to Oklahoma City Oklahoma. One of my blessings on this trip is that I have family spread out across the USA so that I get to see them as I go. This is my Route for the next week or so. Please remember my route may change at a moment’s notice due to traffic or weather. God bless.
I’m in McAlester Oklahoma at the Pittsburg cattlemen Association Arena. They were kind enough to let me Camp out here tonight. And I have internet yayy. I had a very nice hosting last night in Adamson Ok all the neighborhood stopped and checked on me. Thank you Adamson Ok. I also stayed at the Robbers Cave State Park in Wilburton Ok. And would like to thank the people there who helped me get to town to wash clothes. Would also like to thank Matt and his wife and friends who made time to help me fix my lights on my wagon and took Schatzie and I to the Vet so that Schatzie could get to feeling better. Matt Parker is the Athletic Director and Head Baseball Coach of the Eastern Oklahoma State College. A big thank you to all of these people.
Dirt roads are a gift, when I go down a dirt road I’m not thinking about the bumps and pot holes. I’m thinking about how our pioneer ancestors travel roads similar to the one I’m on. How even though the world has changed the mountains and ridges have remained the same. How that little stream of water is probably the same stream that a thousand horses have been watered at in times past. About how the sights, sounds and yes smells are the same as my great great grandparents seen and smelled. All I can think of is that life is good and God is great to lead me on this mission of mine.
