I'm actually just got to Springfield! I left Friday morning at 8:30am and got here today (Sat) at 2pm. I stopped in Tulsa and did some gambling at Cherokee casino when it got dark. I played poker (4-8 Texas Hold em with a limit) for a few hours and lost 9 bucks, so I pretty much broke even. I took the road less travelled from Tulsa to Joplin, route 66, a bit and stopped along the way at interesting places like a winery, an antique store, and a touristy kitsch place. I now know that I could probably make the drive in one long day if I wanted to as it's about 11 hours of driving, probably a 13 hour trip for eating breaks and misc. I'm at the airport Marriott now, and I leave for the airport at 5:45am tomorrow morning for my flight. Luckily it has internet.
If nothing unusual happens, I'll just chill in the room, surf the net, and maybe soak in the hot tub they have here a bit.
