Met a friend in Tulsa and had a wonderful afternoon. I truly wish we could have stayed longer (another time!)
We took a bit of a road less traveled to McAlester, OK, staying east to avoid storms. There was a tense moment on OK RT 72 just north of Council Hill while clocking 55 in a 65 zone (it was night) and I saw a deer (a buck in velvet) approaching from the right shoulder. I screamed “DEER!!” into the headset mic so Angela could have extra warning (she was following me) and I swerved into the empty oncoming lane. I’ll be happy to never repeat that experience!
On to Dallas tomorrow.
