So my buddy Brian and myself had to drive a box truck full of presentation stuff to do a meeting in Dallas TX. It was quite clear early on that this was going to be a long boring drive. To start off the hopes of breaking up the monotony, we decided to take the Missouri/Oklahoma/Texas route down and the Texas/Arkansas/Missouri/Illinois route home. Both about the same miles but hopefully some different scenery. Ok, the Arch... We're in MO... trees, roads more trees, a few hills...what's this I see? a real life, well dead Armadillo on the shoulder of the road. COOL, my first one. Whoa... another and another. So counting dead Armadillos is going to be my "pass the time" road game. By the time we got to Oklahoma, the big MO racked up 24 Possum on a half shell sightings. We saw none in OK by the time we got to our hotel. The next day we head out for Dallas and soon see a flattened critter on the highway. Bored again, Brian ups the anti and grabs his camera and proceeds to try and capture the road kills while me driving 70mph. Soon his excitement is almost beyond control as he captures just the splat mark. After a couple of dozen attempts I couldn't take it any more... MY TURN! I must say it's not as easy as it sounds. We both were shooting too early, with some practice I finally get my prize. A partial carcass which is ok but not as good as Brian's full. As far as the state count goes...
Missouri - 24
Oklahoma - 9
Texas - 6
AR - 0, Night time is tough to see.
We stopped and loaded up on every flavor of Corn Nuts they make...
We're hooked...nuff said. Man the miles fly by when your shooting flattened things and munching on Corn Nuts.
Doug....Score but points deducted for partial mirror obstruction
Oh man, are we bored!
