Progress - 12/12/08 (Depew, OK)


Though I've been keeping the upper-right progress portion of my web site current, I haven't updated you recently on where I am across the country.

I'm now 1,319 miles into my journey as I pass just north of Depew, Oklahoma on Route 44. I've passed through Tulsa and am on my way toward Oklahoma City.

Depew is a small town, a former oil town, and boasts 566 residents. It started back in 1901. The web site gives an unbelievably detailed history for it all happening in 1901. My guess is that Depew gets its visitors through people that travel historic Route 66, as the town is directly on that path.

WOW!

I wonder if your path will take you through the SW corner of Oklahoma. That's where my husband is from!
