Route 66-Day 4: Baxter Springs to Choctaw, Oklahoma

Started off with a beautiful sunrise at the Riverside RV Park.  Left Kansas and headed southwest through towns like Quapaw, Miami (pronounced mammaa), Sequoyah, Claremore and Tulsa.  Saw a Dairy King and great old fillin station in Miami as well as the old Coleman Theatre.  We have been careful to stay on the official Route 66, but most of this has, understandably, been paved so that the road is driveable.  However, outside of Miami, there is a section of the road that is the original pavement.  It is only one car wide so that you would have to pull over to let an oncoming car pass.  In Claremore, we stopped at the Will Rogers Monument and Museum.  It was very cool.  Went thru Tulsa and stopped in Sapulpa for lunch.  There has been a heat wave in this area since we left Chicago.  It has been over 100 degrees every day and when we arrived in Sapulpa, it was 105.  The heat causes delays during the day charging because the circuit breakers trip when we charge at 40 amps so we have to turn it down to  32 amps.  This means more time to charge.  From Sapulpa, we wnet through towns like Bristow, Depew, Stroud, Chandler and Davenport before pulling into the KOA at Choctaw, a few miles east of Oklahoma City.  On through Oklahoma City, El Reno, Hydro, Foss and Clinton, tomorrow.
