Road Trip Report, Day 1
6.5 hours, 400 miles
We got our stuff together this morning, and after a couple of quick errands, including getting a TripTik, tour books, and maps at AAA, headed out of Austin today at 3:30 PM. On our way up I-35, we stopped in West, Texas and picked up kolaches. They will go nicely with our South Texas grapefruit (thanks Mom and Dad) for breakfasts each morning.
We skirted the big D on I-35 and then headed east on I-20. Stopped along the way for a final Texas meal of Whataburger. Got into Shreveport just after 10 PM.
Tomorrow: on across Lousiana on I-20 to Mississippi, where we'll get on the Natchez Trace Parkway up to Tupelo and eventually Nashville.
Gotta get some sleep. More tomorrow if I can...
