"Dodging the Tornadoes"

This was the now-fabled "southern strategy" of me and Ted's little spur of the moment adventure, where instead of heading west from Chicago to get to Miles City, MT, like most regular people who might wear an occasional python boot would, we headed south, to St. Louis and Fairmount Park, and just kept heading south from there. Into tornado central of the universe, Oklahoma and Kansas in May. I was testing those tornado gods yet again. 

Yeah just pix for now and not that many. I don't know what was going on with me this trip ... I just wasn't taking pix. But did get some of Eureka Downs.
