The long awaited road trip to Texas has finally begun. I'm so glad that I didn't get all regimental and try to plan it down to the last detail because nothing has gone according to my loosely planned idea that I held in my head and in Yahoo Trip Planner. There will be no links. The hotel wireless connection is weak and unstable. I even started looking for flights so I could back out of the drive. I thought I would never get out of town.
I originally planned on leaving Saturday but the trip to Boston was last weekend. Speaking of which, I've been trying to get my pictures posted to Flickr. I still have more to come but if you want to check them out click on the link in my sidebar. I didn't realize that I didn't have a weekend in between trips. I returned from Boston to a soggy mess at work on Monday morning. Apparently it rained over the weekend and a pipe broke. I handle the insurance claims for the company besides my day-to-day accounting responsibilities. Needless to say, the week was a whirlwind. Heck the past month has been a whirlwind.
Anyhow, I finally made it on the road today and breathed a sigh of relief that I didn't opt to fly. I forgot how beautiful the drive is to Arizona. I am bunkered down for the night on the outskirts of Tucson. The picture above is the desert on the way to the border of California and Arizona. I laughed as I began to post it because I think I have almost the exact same picture from my trip with Trish several years ago.
