The day started early today with a trip to Oklahoma City Will Rogers World Airport to drop of Maureen N who had to return home because of a previous committment. After dropping her off it was back to the Carolyn Inn to pick up the pies which were safely stored in several room refrigerators and hook up the trailer so that I could be on my way to catch up with the riders. As luck would have it, I couldn't get the trailer to seat properly on the hitch, but I was lucky enough to find a big strong cowboy to assist me. Made my day! Once the trailer was securely fastened it was off down Route 66 to find the riders and get to the hotel so that I could make sure all was in order. Mission accomplished.
