Happy Chico De Mayo. Dave returns to the hotel room as I finish getting ready. He lists all of the wonderful items on the hotel’s free hot breakfast. They all sound delicious. I just wish I was hungry. Instead, I tell him to shut up.
We leave the hotel. It’s still cold outside. I’m still wearing shorts.

We enter Oklahoma and are greeted with a bill for $4. They call it a “toll.” Also, it starts to rain. I don’t understand this state at all.

Our first 75 mph road sign. Dave believes that this legally and morally allows him to go 110. We spend a few minutes researching the definitions of “legal” and “moral. We compromise at 85.

Dave gets the car up to 100 mph. If he hadn’t told me I honestly wouldn’t have realized it. It was so smooth and quiet. I gotta get me one of these.

For reasons I’m not going to get into, and have nothing to do with law enforcement, Dave officially does not like the state of Oklahoma.
