You are a Caught Fish (Post 1 – trip to NYC)

November 25, 2008

We are on the road, have been for 2.5 hours (currently 2:30 CST) and are passing through Garrison, Texas in East Texas. 


An observation – in East Texas they love their catfish.  You can even get catfish at the gas station.  But, try to find a McDonald’s in Garrison and it’s not going to happen.


We are going to die…or starve.  The original plan (and understand it’s kind of a fly by the seat of your pants plan) was to stop in Lufkin for some food.  Fast food of course, we are trying to make NYC in about 24 hours time.  Lufkin=construction.  We didn’t stop.  Next plan Nacogdoches, we flew right by the Burger King.  I think there was a truck blocking our view and since I don’t think you cross the street on a trip like this (and certainly you don’t turn around – EVER) we are still without “real” fast food.


Not to fear, we did pack provisions.  So far of the provisions in the car tested…

  • Smoked Almonds
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Pik-Nik Shoestring Potatoes

Mark commented earlier that this will the first time we will be traveling to another state together…I guess we must do it big if we do it at all, so we are traversing many states on our way to the East Coast.  We have however been to another country, go figure!
