These pictures will help you understand why I get so frustrated going through cities. This is how I’m used to driving. This is the amount of traffic I like.
We left Louisiana just as the sun was almost completely up and it made the fields look a bright shade of yellow.
I kept looking at the sky and saying “Vince, are you sure it isn’t going to rain?” It didn’t matter . . we were going home . . rain or shine!
We got into Texas and, as usual on the roads we take, there’s just no traffic. I am not going to count but I’ll bet that I see fewer cars in the 8 hours it takes to drive back from Louisiana than I do in the 40 minutes or so it takes me to get through Oklahoma City.
Do you see a car anywhere on this road? Look at the shoulder! Texas roads are the best . . for the most part. Every now and then we drive on a road and we say “Are we still in Texas?” but the vast majority of the roads are amazing.
Maybe it’s just me but I think this is so beautiful. Peaceful . . easy driving.
I believe Texas has got hold of me and is not letting go. I feel like I need to apologize to the whole state because I always told Vince “I’ll move anywhere you want to go so long as it’s in the south but I will NOT move to Texas!” Now, as much as I want to move to Missouri, I just don’t think we’ll ever leave Texas.
It’s funny because the first Texas road picture I shared, the road has a big wide shoulder. The second picture has a narrow shoulder. The third one has no shoulder. It really is rare to find a Texas road without a wide shoulder.
I can drive all day any day on the back roads. Put me on the interstate, and I crumble!
