Texas is big, and takes a long time to cross. So long, that by the time you leave it, you are glad that it’s over. We left Las Cruces Monday morning and made it to Sweetwater.
The scenery was finally starting to green up and the trees just beginning to leaf out. On Tuesday we left our luxurious Walmart accommodations and finished up the drive into and through Dallas – Fort Worth. For the record, I have now driven Ralphie through every major city in the U.S., it doesn’t get any less stressfull. We found a campground on the NorthEast side of Dallas for a couple of nights. It was the perfect location to meet up with friends from when I was in the Marines, and Danelle’s cousin. While we were there I was supposed to come up with the next destination. I wasn’t having very good luck until Ryan with MotoAmerica texted me and said I should go to New Orleans and spend the weekend at the track there and we could use it as a base to go into the city. And that’s how we ended up in New Orleans over the weekend. Danelle has never been there so we had to go down to the French Quarter so she could see all of the partying. She even caught some beads. Once she had seen enough of Bourbon Street, it was time to indulge with Beignets and coffee at Cafe du Monde. Sunday started out rainy but by noon it started to clear up and we spent a bit of time exploring the Garden District.
Next up we are headed to the Gulf Shores, stay tuned. . .
