While Lee Duquette drives the RV, Karen Duquette takes random photos through the front window of the RV for entertainment purposes. Although they would like to stop everywhere shown on the signs, sometimes, they cannot for time reasons.

Several cities the two RV Gypsies stopped at are circled on the map shown directly below. But some of the cities they stopped in are not on this map.

Their great-grandchildren of the two RV Gypsies like water towers, so Karen Duquette takes a lot of water tower pictures for their photo books.

Below: Pony Bridge on US Hwy 281 in Geary Oklahoma. Although its official name is William H. Murray Bridge, this distinct landmark spanning the South Canadian River has long been known as Pony Bridge for its pony trusses, which are bridge trusses that do not connect at the top.

Named on the National Register of Historic Places, the longest bridge on Oklahoma's stretch of Route 66 spans 3,944 feet with 38 trusses. This same bridge made an appearance on the 1939 film “The Grapes of Wrath.” The bridge is soon to be closed for Extensive Maintenance and is estimated to reopen late 2024. However on this date October 10, 2022, the two RV Gypsies drove over Pony Bridge and back again just because they could. As seen in the below photo, there was no other traffic on the bridge.
