Where I stayed
Down on Eric's Farm
Eric also offered for us to paint his home while we stayed with him to earn some money while wasting time in Oklahoma
One night, out of desperation and silliness, Erika decided to look on craigslist for a scooter. It wasn't five minutes later that we had found, what we thought was, a great deal. It was a 1984 Honda Aero 125 and was being sold for $350. We started joking about how awesome it would be to Dumb and Dumber it across America. Before we knew it, Eric was on the phone with the owner. He asked all the questions that neither of us knew to ask. Interestingly enough, he had been looking for a scooter to commute to and from work and told us that if we bought the scooter, and it didn't work out, he would buy it from us. We thought it sounded like a fool proof plan! Eric left us the keys to one of his work trucks to go pick it up from Oklahoma City the next morning.
Turns out that the truck is a stick shift and proved to be a little tricky for two automatic girls to drive. We made our way into OKC and to the woman's house to get the scooter. When we got there we were greeted by Linda and her mother, Rita. They were two friendly women who were interested in our trip and excited to chat with us. We talked with them for quite some time and Linda even gave us a jar of homemade salsa to bring back with us. Thanks Linda and Rita!!!
Besides painting and planning our week was filled with scooter rides, cow tipping, and snake charming.
