Day 163 / Mile 19,250
Traveling through the Ozarks was surprisingly beautiful, for I was completely naive to the region and now would definitely go back. ...give me a call if you wanna go.
I was excited getting into Oklahoma, knowing that my first stop was a bit of a thrilling location. The northern town of Picher is claimed to be, "The most toxic town in America", and mostly a modern day ghost town. Since I've visited a similar and actually more dangerous place, I wasn't afraid to go explore.
After leaving Picher I found that the historic Route 66 was in my path. I'll be seeing more of it down the way, but wanted to check out some of those classic roadside tourist destinations while I had a chance.
The storm here is showing to get pretty serious, so I'm going to charge off to safer grounds. Fortunately my ex-girlfriend who I haven't seen in a few years lives just over in Austin, may as well go for a visit and dry out.
