Details from the car...

Me, impersonating a truck driver.  Note, flannel shirt, huge smile due to the endless entertainment of the road, and the blur of the passing scenery...

Dallas.  We made a wrong turn and learned how not to take pictures at night.

Driving for 13.5 hours from 1:30 PM to 3:00 AM is really great.  We made it without any accidents, speeding tickets, or truck stop drama.  Highlights included two gas stops, getting lost in Dallas, and a Fried Pie store (unfortunately it was closed).  At 3:00 AM, we arrived at our destination.  No, not the hostel, but a Wal Mart parking lot.  We chalked it up to our own little Occupy movement and hunkered down for the night.  Despite reports that Houston would be very warm, we were almost icicles when we awoke at 7:00.  We spent a little time freshening up in Wal Mart, so that we would look as amazing as these people.
