Texas is boring. Driving across the state I realize that “everything is big in Texas” means the state itself. Thank goodness I have CD’s cause out in the middle of nowhere there’s no radio. Listening to The Doobie Brothers improves my mood.”…oooooh, rockin’ down the highway.”
You know that thing about the faster you go the more gas you use? Texas speed limit on the highway is 80 mph. Hmmmm….
Here’s a shot from the Trinity River Wildlife Refuge. I think the white thing over the water is a heron. Saw lots of those.
Going across Louisiana in Interstate 10 is interesting. Lots and lots of water. I lost count of how many bridges I crossed. Some of them were ten stories high! And part of the highway is a bridge over swampland that runs for 15 miles.
I’m tired of driving all day. From now on my trips will be shorter so I can have some of the days to explore.
Last night and tonight I am overnight parking at different Walmarts. It’s safe and easy. And free! I’ve got everything I need, including a bathroom. What was the name of that movie where a girl lived in Walmart?
I should start heading north by tomorrow afternoon, so I guess it’ll be back to motels. Too cold to sleep in the van.
