Monday April 7, 2014-Moving day-Coffee Creek RV Park to Choctaw KOA, Durant OK

Yesterday, Sunday, was a very drab, cold and rainy day all day long. The only thing we did was to go down to the rally hall for coffee and cop food (donuts). We said goodbye to some of our friends that had to leave to go back home for work, but there were several that stayed, many planning to go to the next rally in Durant Oklahoma. We mostly stayed indoors for the rest of the day because of the bad weather. I think if I continue to complain about the weather it will stay but if I ignore it, it will just simply go away.

This morning, we were up and working on getting packed up to leave for Durant. We decided to follow our friends Dan and Karen and we both pulled out about 9. Pretty good for little or no prep the night before. Rather than take the freeways as we normally would have, we went on some back roads to avoid a huge traffic jam at the Texas World Speedway near Ft. Worth where they are running a race that was postponed from yesterday because of the rain.

We made very good time and only made one stop for a potty break on the side of the road somewhere. We pulled into the beautiful Choctaw Casino KOA RV Park a little after 12. It wasn't long before we were all set up and the a/c on, cooling the trailer off.

Several more of our Heartland friends arrived from Santo and we had a small gathering at our trailer with coffee and fire crackers later in the afternoon. Later we decided to go into Durant for some pizza at a Pizza Hut but it was closed for everything but take out. We ended up at Chili's which was all right but nothing spectacular. 

We came on back home and some went to the casino to gamble but Stella and I came home to rest after the travel day. We will be looking forward to more of our friends arriving soon and the rally begins on Thursday.

So long.
