The next leg of The Journey is just around the corner.  Upcoming milestones: 5 more working days, 10 days until I leave.

I won’t go very far.  It’s less than 100 miles to Miami, Oklahoma.  But I have a feeling it’ll feel like an entirely different world.  Civilization.  Internet.  Cell phone coverage.  Casinos.  TIME. I plan to get caught up on things, do some more job searching, try some small buy-in poker tournaments to produce an income, and rehearse endlessly for my upcoming training in Branson.

My campsite is free the first 3 nights and $10 per night afterwards.  This  includes water, electric, and a dump station — no shower facilities.  If I don’t locate a nearby truck stop, it appears I’ll be sponge bathing.  All this said, it sounds positively DREAMY, at the moment.

As I trek around this region all of February, I have little doubt weather will have an impact.  As much as I’ve been programmed lately to monitor the weather on a daily basis, I think I can manage my travel days around the rain, snow, and wind — it’s a pretty short trip to Branson.  What I really hope to avoid is having to skirt 48 Ugly*, again — especially for these short 7 – 10 day stays.  But as long as my tires hold up until spring, I’m happy (Mic and I replaced my damaged tire only to discover 3 more that have wear on them.  Add “alignment” to the list).

Hey!  My faucet is dripping!  My plumbing has been frozen for over 3 days so I think I’ll close now so I can open it up…

Happily but nervously anticipating : February 3rd.

    I’m finally back on line after almost three weeks. Fingers crossed that all goes well for you in Branson. Hope your weather improves. We are having lots of warm weather here – upper 70’s.

    Hope you find some more pleasant weather. A new location always feels like a fresh start. More possibilities and opportunity awaits. Good luck!
