You suck! We don't leave for Colorado until the 7th. I am looking forward to some cooler weather! Silverton's average temps for August are 70/38!

Hey Kowboy, what area you guys going to be at? Silverton?

We have a group of about 5 rigs headed around the same area next Friday. Hopefully we will be in the Silverton area toward the end of the week.

If you're remotely interested in seeing some scenery (other than the lake just below the tree line) let us know. We'd be right prowd to hang out with ya.

Roadtrip just wouldn't be worth a damn if'n it didn't start out at the beer store. :beer:

Second picture is goin' over a neat ol' one-lane bridge by Choctaw Casino near Durant. :cool:

Had to pull of the road in Troy so Josh could yank down this ol' power pole and claim the glass insulators. :grinpimp:

Somewhere near Joy, OK we seen this modern art deal out in a Fella's field. We suspected he'd been on the dope when he made it. :eek:

So here we sit ... at the Townsman Motel ... a deluxe 5-star facility in Boise City, OK. :clap:

We done traversed 'bout 520 miles of some of Oklahoma's finest back roads. Some were good ... some weren't so good ... but all were fun. Went through countless small towns and some damn pretty country ... and some damn barren country towards the end. Only covered 'bout 40 miles that weren't two-lane. :steer:

Actually sad to see so many of the lil' bitty towns are just closin' up and shuttin' down. A piece of Americana that can never be replaced ... and is never seen from the big highways and biways. :frown:

Damn glad we got a chance. :cheers:

Be campin' in the high country of Colorado tomorrow night ... somewhere. :cool:
