Day 19: Drive ALL THE Miles!

I got up early and boogied out of New Orleans, bound for Austin, Texas.

This is where I stayed for the last week and a half. Trains! This is where I stayed for the last week and a half. Trains! Some people park RVs permanently as a cheap form of housing. This shows exactly how permanent that can be :p Some people park RVs permanently as a cheap form of housing. This shows exactly how permanent that can be :p Why yes, New Orleans does love its bridges! Why yes, New Orleans does love its bridges! Here I am, what must be fifteen stories up Here I am, what must be fifteen stories up This is my kind of diet! This is my kind of diet!

I stopped at a Jack in the Box for a late breakfast. I haven't been to one of those in years and years!

Look, it's Houston! Look, it's Houston!

The last time I drove for seven hours, I touched four states. This time I only touched two. Welcome to Texas, where you and El Paso can be 857 miles apart, yet both be inside the state.

I parked my RV at the Colorado River RV Park in Bastrop about a 40-minute drive south from Austin. South by Southwest has everything closer booked pretty much solid.

I went to dinner at the Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant, which I totally forgot to photograph, then went home for the night, where a very severe thunderstorm kept me up half the night. It was much worse than anything I remember seeing in North Carolina, probably because Texas has so much more open range land for the wind to build up.
