Wednesday April 9, 2014-Choctaw KOA, Durant OK

Here we are, all set up and ready to party in Durant Oklahoma. I've noticed that the locals pronounce it like Doooorant but I get looked at funny when I say it that way.

We've spent time with our friends, most of whom came from Santo at the rally there. Today the rest of the folks that had been with us there arrived along with some of the Oklahoma chapter members. The place is starting to fill up with Heartlanders!

Stella and I went to the Wal Mart in town and while she shopped, I capped a couple of Munzees. I came back to the truck and found the location for the "World's Largest Peanut" that was found in front of the city hall in Roadside America thanks to my friend Kelly Barnett. She's a blogger too and told me about this site and sometimes I find some cool stuff so if you're a blogger or just a traveler, it might be worth your while to look for this stuff on your trip.

We came back to the park this evening and had an absolute feast of smoked ribs, cheesy potatoes and barbecue beans. Dan and Jim both cooked the ribs using their portable smokers, and boy, were they good! Jim fixed some strawberry shortcakes with a side of Bluebell Homemade Vanilla and that topped it off! And you wonder why we love these rallies?

So long.
