Halfway to Albuquerque from Oklahoma City, the winds abate somewhat – finally! If they had not, I was considering a name change to Wendy Weathers. Sign after sign warns us of “dangerous crosswinds” ahead as we travel across New Mexico. Storm is using both his trucking and piloting skills to keep us on course. I half expect to wake up from one of my many naps to find that he has the coach in a full forward slip to stay in our lane!
We stayed over an extra night in Oklahoma City to visit a high school classmate of Storm’s and to see some local sights. Because our friends assured us that the winds in Oklahoma City were always like this, we attached some ballast to each other so we wouldn’t blow away and set out to brave the city’s gale force winds. Here are some of the more unusual things we saw along the way and a report from OK City.
