After a lengthy wait I was beeped: I’m headed to Houston, Texas to pick up a load of beer headed for El Paso.
I drove along a fairly well maintained state highway direct from Austin and pulled in to our designated fuel stop in Houston around 1530. The Budweiser plant is across town so I’ll take my break here then head over in the dead of night to swap my empty trailer for one full of beer.
Lots of wind yesterday and today. With a full trailer it is just a pain to keep up your speed, but empty you can get blown around quite a bit. Not quite bad enough to pull over, but enough to keep me awake.
Irony alert: As I was passing through a small town along the way, I came across Memory Lane. Then I forgot to take a stroll. Ah well.
