So, this post is coming to you from Benton, Texas which is just outside of Ft Worth. It’s been 2 full days driving since leaving California. Should be “home” in time for lunch tomorrow.
And what a trip! Yesterday wewere in a traffic jam where it took just over an hour to go 4 miles. Today we had a reservation in Abilene TX. It was in the downtown area, which was NOT up and coming, to say the least The lobby was filthy with a broken air conditioner, and it was 111 outside. But we got the key and, opmistically went to the room. UGH! Filthy doesn’t begin to describe it. And stinky. The lights didn’t work and the sheets were wrinkled as if they’d been slept in for a week or more. We left.
Not far out of Abilene we were hit by 2 storms with rain so bad we had to pull off the road forabout 20 min.
Buy we are in a beautiful, clean, non-stinky room now so life is good.
