Dad and I left Tucson and drove to Albuquerque for the night. We found a Days Inn to hold up for the night. I was having a hard time getting to sleep, knowing that we were to get up at 5am to head into Oklahoma City. I looked at the clock and it was 1:30 am, and I was not quite sleepy, but laid down and tried to get to sleep. I set the alarm for 5am. I woke up at 5:34, thinking I had overslept, so I hurried up and got dressed and packed my things.
I was surprised that my dad had not knocked on the door, so I took my things down to the car to get a head start, and came back up and knocked on dads door. He didn't answer, so I knocked a little louder. He finally answered the door, but he had just gotten out of bed and was asking my why I was waking him up so early. I looked at the clock in his room and my watch, and found out that it was only 10 minutes to 5. OOOPs the clock in my room was an hour off. LOL! Well dad just decide to get up and get ready earlier then planned.
Finally ready, we headed out the door to go find some breakfast before getting on the highway. We stopped at McDonald's, just up the road about 3 minutes from the Hotel, then hit the road.
We drove straight through to Oklahoma City and actually made some really good time, arriving at about 2pm. It was a pretty uneventful drive, other than the wind that was pushing the car all over the road.
