Just letting y’all know I’m alive…

…and well after the trip back to Texas.

I did learn a few things, though:

  • Like just how big Texas really is… We left Beaumont about 8:30 AM and made it to the New Mexico border about 11 PM… and that includes a time zone change. It also includes about an hour and a half diversion off the normal route to see my aunt, but she offered a free lunch, an offer I couldn’t refuse…
  • When the speed limit’s 80, it’s really easy to find yourself going 90.
  • There’s a whole lot of nothing between San Antonio and El Paso.

When we lived in Oklahoma and would travel across Texas on vacations, my brother and I would joke that you could fall asleep at the wheel for an hour and when you woke up, nothing would have happened.
