This is just a brief update from the road. We’re in Austin, Texas, getting ready in the hotel before moving on our way to New Orleans for the next night. We drove 15 hours on our first day, making it by far our longest day of travel. Most of New Mexico and Texas is desert wasteland, so there’s not a lot to see there, though I’m sure somebody would tell me that the views are majestic. And to them, I’d say, “Hey New Mexico Department of Tourism, shut the hell up.”
We did see San Antonio, briefly, which was lovely, so I can now say I’ve seen the Alamo. So, uh, check.
From here, all our stops (assuming no weather-related detours), will be cities I’ve lived in. NOLA tonight, Nashville tomorrow, DC after that and then onto Boston.
See you on the other side.
