Its time to be preparing for the annual Road Trip to the Nationals for a lot of "R" members.

Tulsa's weather forecast currently Low "90's to 60's" but swinging to Low "80's to 60's" WITH RAIN at the start of the Nationals.

Umbrellas & fans with a smile are required!


Shopping & food & fun anyway you drive from National's in close range.

Lowe's, Target, Sears, Food -Food-Food, Reasor's grocery & Walmart's grocery, Gordman's,

Hidden Treasure's gifts, dollar store, Walgreens drug, ALL ACROSS THE STREET from fairgrounds.

Of course the fairgrounds has alot of contruction ongoing but not in the show's way.

Tulsa University is a couple blocks away & should have a football game on a Saturday night, plenty of tickets.

New HUGE score board & redone stadium. etc, etc. New Tulsa Arena open down town, world class.

Most motels are a few miles south(21st to 41st -- distance) & some on I-244(under construction(overlay) a mile north.

Mac D's, Arby's, Subs, Rib-Crib, Merrieta's Bakery(GREAT), Burger Street, Coney's(GREEK PLACE), Burger King, Quizzino's,

Taco Bell's, laundry(washing), etc, etc, etc ALL less than a mile WEST of fairgrounds(DUE TO TU = NW of fairgrounds).

BE SAFE on the ROAD & HAVE FUN FUN FUN.,,,, IT THE "R" NATIONALS AGAIN!!!!

Leeana, If you have any problems once you hit the KY border just let me know. I'm about 30 min from the Horse Park and I'd be glad to stow away in your truck and go with you. Just gotta hide me so Mike can catch me, for some reason he thinks he needs me to help run the business. Bet he wouldn't even miss me.

We have a 14 hr drive straight thru - not counting gas, food, etc. So we'll be leaving sometime
in the wee hours of Wed. morning to arrive Wed. ?sometime. It always exhausts me but the only way to get there from here (Wisconsin near Milwaukee). My filly is in a youth class on Thursday and we're staying for the whole thing. In fact we may be in the last class of the show.

We're renting a camper and staying at the campgrounds.

I am so jealous that I can't make it to Nationals, I made the decision to go to Worlds as all my horses are going, versus nationals where I was going to send my (our) stallion. Money is just too tight, and as I focus on my A program more, it made more sense to go to Worlds for me! Maybe next year!

Have a wonderful time and good luck!!

We are leaving sometime early Tues--hoping to get there noonish or a bit later. We are taking 2. chose to downsize this year rather than skip altogether. we skipped last year and missed it badly since it was our first miss since we started in 1996. Will have our cell phones with us so you can pm me for the # so you can call me when you get there and we can find each other for a few min chat.

We are leaving Friday morning. It's only a five hour trip for us. Five horses, three dogs, three people. I'll be the lady with the large Chocolate Lab and tiny JRT. Jane will have her JRT with her, too.

I'm actually staying in the stabling area. Jane will stay in the trailer. We heard there is a MAJOR problem with theft there this year. So, this will protect all our stuff.
