We were up early this morning and had done a good bit last night. Stella got a bit behind because she had to stop frequently for bathroom breaks, so the medicine is still working! We were ready to go about 8:30 (neither if us checked the time) and before we knew it, we were heading toward Springfield. We had changed the route last night at the urging of Nancy, who HATED the twisty-turny roads we had come up here on. And beside that, it would be easier to stop along the road in case Stella had an emergency.
We traveled with Dave and Nancy, our normal traveling companions and David and Susan G. our friends from Louisiana. This was our first time with them and we enjoyed the trip.
We made pretty good time, but the new route was about 40 miles further, making out total mileage today 375, or an all day drive after making three pit stops. We pulled in at the casino about 4:30 and were soon set up and ready to relax. We had no issues on the trip but were tired from driving all day.
There has been a change to the rally here in Durant. The Chapter Leaders, Rex and Stacey had to leave unexpectedly for a family emergency, so they passed the information about the rally to one of their members, who will carry out the rally. Of course, we will be there to help if needed. We're sure that everything will work out well.
