Tuesday, May 12, 1992...

A very uneventful day, on which I drove 60 from Amarillo to Joplin, Missouri. Two major roads connect these cities -- unfortunately the other one, Route 66, got all the interesting scenery as well as the population centers.

Ponca City, OK, doing its best Elizabeth, NJ imitation

From Amarillo east to the Oklahoma border, I saw nothing of consequence; across Oklahoma, the road passed from flat rangeland prairie to hills and lakes, but not much else. Route 66 has Oklahoma City and Tulsa; I had to settle for Ponca City and Bartlesville. Yippee.
