Fenton, MO to Elk City, OK

We were up at 5 am and ready to hit the road by 5:30 a.m. We ended up accidentaly almost riding an "Iron Butt" by the end of the day. We rode close to 1,000 miles since about 4 p.m. yesterday, but feel great!!

Hit an intense looking storm about 40 miles from Elk City, Oklahoma; our stop for the day. The advice from a local was to sit it out. We decided to dance! WOW! Was that intense!! The storm was very strong, but very narrow fortunately, and we rode through it after just a few miles. The skies were crystal clear and blue behind the storm. Arrived safely and enjoyed a meal of ribeye and baked potato.

End Point: Elk City, OK
Odometer at End of Day: 15702
Miles Traveled: 605
