Until we got to Oklahoma

so we were cautious 
I mean every single time we had to stop to pee 
                                                we checked it,
it was good -

and then when we did pull over, we pulled over –

(we had the opportunity pretty much to get a super 8 motel)

we were like, ok we got
	                  this many hours

were gonna get up were gonna shower 
                                   and get back in the car by
                                                                         this time
					         
and we. did!

We got up man,
		we had to put all our food bins back in,

we showered we got everything
	ya know all the coolers
				downstairs

and it was crazy hot, like a hundred an fifteen degrees 
				              with high humidity!

so as soon as we got everything into the car
	we were already sweatin’ our butts off -

like ugh just keep goin…

It was a great time 
      until we got to Oklahoma,
and then it got to be a straight-up Gallagher adventure from there man.
