Thursday, May 9 – Oklahoma, Here We Come!

I learned what road construction crews do with the debris that gets scraped up when old road surfaces are demolished prior to road repaving: it is transported to Oklahoma where it is spread by aerial dispersion over prepared road beds to serve as final pavement.

We did 420 miles this day during which our rig occasionally made contact with the road surface. Most of the time we were airborne due to extraordinarily rough road conditions.

The highlight of the day, which Mary Ann loves to retell, was when a livestock truck drove by us and we could clearly see little pink pig snouts sticking out through the grates in the sides of the truck. We couldn’t tell if the little piggies were going to market or if they were going home.

Note to Oklahoma DOT: you need to spend some time in Arkansas.

    There’s an easy way to tell which way the piggies were going: If they were little pink pig snouts, they were going home. If they were big pink pig snouts, they were going to market.

    Either way up until that point, I am sure they said weeeee.

    Ha! I’ve driven those Oklahoma roads and have seen the construction waste of which you speak!
