Can hardly believe I am back in Texas. Doesn't seem that long ago that I was here, and I guess maybe it wasn't, but it feels like many years ago. Tried to avoid another mud pit Texas RV park by choosing one with paved sites, but have arrived at a park with paved sites, and water ankle deep and plenty of good ole Texas mud:). Lots of rain today so was glad to at least get of the road and happy to be in Beaumont for a brief rest. The "plan" is to be up and out by 3:00 AM to get me through Houston before the traffic hits. Am going back through Fredericksburg which keeps me north of San Antonio and just a bit south of Austin which worked really well the last time as I completely bypassed San Antonio. I have also reserved at the same park I stayed last time because it was one of my favorite spots. It is all looking pretty good at this point.
Had a bit of nostalgia leaving Louisiana. The radio station was full of Super Bowl and Mardi Gras news and lots of zydeco music. One of the stops I made sold shrimp po-boys so had to have just one last po-boy for the road. Ahh, Louisiana, don't know when I will see you again. I have been traveling in and out of you since the late 60s and we have shared a lot of history.
Now, Texas, I certainly like the western section much better than the east. Wonder how many days it will take me to be out of Texas...?
