Tulsa, Oklahoma - Fenton, Missouri
We stayed at the La Quinta in Tulsa. It's in better shape than the Baymont. After breakfast, we loaded the car and headed out of town. We travelled up toll-road I-44 and stopped at a McDonalds that straddles east-bound and west-bound I-44. Then to the Missouri border, Joplin, Springfield, and across Hwy 360 to Ozark Missouri and Lambert's -- Home of the Throwed Rolls. Can't get enough of the throwed rolls, the huge portions, and the continuous offer of "fixin's" from circulating staff at Lambert's.
From Ozark back up to I-44 and on past Lebanon, Rolla, Cuba, and Sullivan to Fenton.
We are staying once again at the Drury Inn and Suites at exit 272. The Drury Inn is really growing on us. We feel it's the best value of all the places we've stayed at. We should try to make it more of a habit.
An easy, sunny day's drive. We're planning on eating at the Bob Evan's right beside the Drury Inn.
