Route planning our Oklahoma Road Trip

Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac Ranch

We’re driving from the Salt Lake Valley to Oklahoma next week to see my family, and show the girls around my old stomping grounds, and to visit Coney Islander, El Maguey, Whataburger, Arnie’s Bar, and maybe a Ron’s. You know, important stuff.

I’m route planning here based on: How likely we are to get blizzarded, and what roadside attractions we can find. Here we go:
