Midwest City – Elk City
As the weather was even worse than yesterday i skipped again some waypoints and took the interstate instead of route 66.
I just visited Fort Reno where the historic military vehicle convoy stopped.
But I have spoken with many famous people today. I am so proud to have met them!
