So I didn't take as many photos on our road trip as I intended. We spent two nights at Fort Campbell, KY and went out for a little two-stepping/line-dancing one night. Left wishing that Wisconsin would turn just a little more southern, because it's something the husband and I enjoy doing and wish we could more often.
All day Saturday we made the trek across the states, but not before we had our traditional Waffle House breakfast. A staple anytime we leave Ft Campbell. A little driving, and we landed in a small town in Arkansas. Treated ourselves to a nice italian dinner, and ordered a glass of wine. The waitress politely responded "sorry we don't serve alcohol here, you're in a dry county". Say what? The husband and I were taken back. Clearly we have heard of these before, but never thought we'd be in one ever. So just despite the wine-less dinner we enjoyed, we made the 20 minute trip to the nearest store and bought two large bottles of wine. Brought them back to the hotel and sipped on them all night long. Wisconsinites don't do well with no alcohol restrictions, this should be made known.
By Sunday we made it to Fort Sill, OK. Cruised around base a bit, so the husband could get acquainted. Relaxed in our hotel the entire afternoon, and went out in the town of Lawton in search of a nice restaurant to enjoy the last night together (for a while). There was no sign of life, literally a ghost-town. We were waiting for one of those rolling bushes to cross the road. All of the restaurants were either closed already or closed by 7pm. Which was 10 minutes to, so we reverted back to a good ole Cracker Barrel, which ironically was within walking distance from our hotel. Go figure.
Monday morning came too quick, and the husband dropped me off at the tiny airport. We said our "see you soon's" and he reported for his first day of Army training. It's been a day or two now, and has yet to hit me that he will be gone until there piles of snow on the ground. I know it will sink-in in a couple months, but I'm thankful for a very busy schedule and an energetic puppy who always wants to play.
