We awoke to a cool, gray morning. Instead of cruising along the Gulf Coast as planned, we decided to just continue the long trek west. New plan. On the way home, we're going to follow the Texas coast from El Paso until it's meets up with Louisiana then follow the back roads to New Orleans.
We entered Texas on I-10 at MM 880!!!. Depressing. Another 880 miles before we get to New Mexico. We're spending tonight at the Steven F. Austin State Park just west of Houston. $22/night. A nice campground just off I-10. When I made the trip west with only Gopher, we stayed here as well.
Gas is running in the $2.80-90/gallon range.
