Dad took my trailer with him this morning, so I had a spring in my step and covered the 70 miles or so into Bartlesville in under 8 hours. The weather was perfect, and the roads were excellent.
It was neat to come into Bartlesville by the back roads, Bison and Madison. When I arrived at the house, Mom & Dad & Genki were out running errands, but they left the back door open for me. I got my tent and sleeping bag all aired out and sent my long-overdue e-mail before Tiff & co. arrived around 4:30.
Then we caravanned to Donna & Wally May's house in the country for the church Halloween party, which I'd never attended before. There was a bonfire, a spook house, a hayride, and lots of food, and the congregation made up only about half of the people there: lots of guests. As Dad pointed out, a good time was had by all, even the girl who got bit by some sort of critter.
