Day 1

This is at the start of the trip on the drive from Oklahoma City to Amarillo, Texas. We were told from the start to document every moment and I couldn’t let this one go unnoticed. Within the first twenty to thirty minutes we found ourselves in a major traffic jam, this picture shows the complete halt that we were at which delayed us by a couple of hours. Fortunately this is the only traffic jam we came across in our trip, but reaching it so early in the journey had us all concerned for what the next 10 were to bring. Overall I thought this made a good artifact because it marked an interesting starting point to our journey and it also forced us to reroute and put use to the old Route 66 highway.
