Day 2 – Dumas (TX) to Denver (CO)

Miles today – 400

Total Miles – 975

Driving into Oklahoma.

Shorter drive today and nothing all that exciting.  About the most exciting thing today was trying to find dry ice.  Tried three place in Dumas and finally found some in Lamar, CO.  All the meat was still frozen solid when I arrived.

Driving into Colorado.

The prairie grasslands in southeastern Colorado were in full wildflower bloom but the two large trucks swapping places in front of me made taking a picture not all that important.

Slight change in plans as I am now going to drive to Sheridan, Wyoming tomorrow to make Sunday and Monday easier drives.

Day 1 – Fedor (TX) to Dumas (TX)

Miles today – 575

Total miles – 575

About 9 hours today from Fedor, TX to Dumas, TX.  I tried to take some video/pictures, but, apparently I should have read the instructions.  That, and I’ve done the drive enough times that nothing really stands out anymore.

For those wanting a kinda neat day-trip, TX Highway 36 is a nice drive.  I found out there is a Leon River west of Temple (and intersects Hwy 36 numerous times) that forms Lake Belton.  Like all limestone bottomed, hill country lakes, its really pretty from the road.

Off to Denver tomorrow for a couple of nights and a rest day.
