So starting direction is changing to heading west and away from his affects. Brother Scott emailed us that Ike is projected to head right toward him, so I'd rather not put up with rain, flooding, winds, detours, etc and take the easy way out and head west! So we will visit brother Ken in Phoenix first.
Think we are going to head for Copper Breaks State Park (opps, it's Fort Supply State Park, near Woodward. Copper Breaks is near Vernon TX) near Woodward OK first, then wander our way towards Palo Duro Canyon State Park, near Amarillo, then angle southwestward to the southern part of New Mexico and over to Phoenix. We have plenty of time to sightsee, relax and take it easy and do nothing, if we want.
