Senior Day at the Fair

Yesterday we made our annual trek to the State Fair of Oklahoma via Riverwind Casino for breakfast. In years past the breakfast was free for seniors on Wednesdays. This year it was $2.50 a person. Still it was very reasonable, $5.00 for the two of us.

Then we headed up to the fair. This year I don't think it was as crowded as in years past. I had one particular thing that I wanted. It's called a Miracle Kitchen Plus. I watched the demonstration and tasted the salsa that was made with it and knew I had to have one, some of the best homemade salsa I have ever tasted. The other thing that sold me was when we start to full-time it will come in handy when we don't have access to power while boondocking. Things at the fair are not always the bargins they would have you to believe. I paid $35.00 for the machine, Ginsu knife and cheese grater. I went on line and found them on sale for $17.95. So I plan to pick up two of them and give them to the girls for Christmas presents since the girls asked me if I got them one.

This year we decided not to eat at the fair....I know, tis a sacriglige...but to go to Bunny's Onion Burger stand instead. After having a totally awesome burger we went back to Norman to let the dogs out and then head over to Floyd's RV center. Yes Bobbie, we started looking at 5th wheels yesterday. So many to see, so much to absorb. No wonder it takes two years to make up your mind.
Today my tootsies are sore from all the walking we did for 6 hours. How the kids (Workampers) at manage for 12 hours I do not know. I don't think I could do it. Glad it's Friday tomorrow and the weekend is here. More clearing of junk to be done.
Happy Trails...

  1. You are very savy to do you homework on that fiver. I might suggest that when you make up your mind on one, make a trip to the factory if it is at all possible. It is very enlightening to see how these RV's are made!

    The HitchHiker brand is manufactured in Chanute Kansas. That is really pretty close and the last time we were there, we owned a HitchHiker fiver once, they were very acommodating to visitors.


We would love to hear from you, so please write a line or two when you visit.
