What To Do

This is oil country. You can drive for miles and all you see are oil derricks pumping oil. Then you happen upon a small town and more of the same and repeat. There’s something about it that’s intriguing though.

One thing I did was go to a car race at the local track; Hobbs Motorsport Park; this was very noisy and a lot of fun. I was able to check out the cars during the daytime as they were in a local parking lot.
