Too soon, it was time for Ellie and Ron to head home, and for us to head to bed to rest up for travel day.
Our first challenge of the day, once we got on the road this morning, was to get across Houston. We'd finally decided, after much discussion and talking to several people, to go straight across on Interstate 10, after rush hour. I think that was a good decision - we made it across with no problems or delays.
Our next challenge was a dead stop for over 45 minutes just east of Beaumont, Texas. We finally called the local T-DOT number and found out that instead of the construction we thought was the cause, there'd been an accident and the eastbound lanes were closed. Finally, traffic started moving again, and we are are once again underway.
The planned stop for tonight is in Breaux Bridge, Lousisiana. Stay tuned for more adventures, justravelin.
