Oklahoma Adventure Tour

I started out on the OAT Monday and plan on going until Sunday. I will do a ride report when I am done but I've been taking some pics as I go so here they are.

The bike after I low side slid on some wet clay to avoid a flooded out road.

Say that again? Laundry? You be adventuring why wash?
I know about that OK red dirt. Caked that stuff on the pipes of my BMW's over 30 years of traveling there.And never intentionally went off highway.

I enjoy camping, however, I also enjoy not smelling myself. I figure humans took a long time to figure out indoor plumbing, it would be disrespectful to not use it and showers are useless if you put back on nasty clothes

A lot of good camping garb is available at stores like REI. Wash and go in the shower. Dry in the morning. Jeans and the like are more bothersome.
Get comfortable with your natural self and forget the folks you will meet and never see again!
Part of the ADV mind set!
Just saw an article on the web about a feller who hadn't bathed or changed clothes in years. Rank and improper.
