The Road to Texas



It was a long strange road to Texas. Our highways are getting weirder out there.

We decided not to spend a second night at the Swannee music place. Then we were too late to check into the campground we hoped to stay at. Instead, we kept on driving. Spent the night at a truck stop, then drove to Texas the next day.

It took an hour to go five miles on the LA, TX border. Rt. 10 is a mess down there. As soon as we could, we set off cross country over county roads. Ended up at my in-laws two days early.

Still need a good long shower, the laundry has backed up, and computer problems need to be sorted out.

One thing I did right off was order an efficient compressor type cooler. Should be here in a couple days. We should be better off when it's time to head out.

  1. I think you picked a day when a Fedex and UPS truck decided to spill their contents in Louisiana near the Texas border. It backed up the regular bad traffic for hours.

    Right now, in Texas, new construction is on too much of IH 10 near the Louisiana border. I avoid it, and take the back roads.

    1. The new construction is a disaster zone. It didn't look too bad eastbound, so we might luck out going back to FL.

  2. What brand/size cooler did you order?

    1. Alpicool C15, 15 liters. It's a small one, but should also fit on the boat.

  3. Seems like all the major highways are getting fuller these days along with more accidents.

    1. No one seems to be paying attention to the road.
