Show trip route
Dallas to San Antonio
Shuttle bus from Lawrence to Hertz, back to hotel and we were on the road by about 9.30.Had to drive passed the Book Depository, over the 2 x's on the road, where Kennedy was shot, and I must say it was quite an eerie feeling.
Onto the 35E going south towards Waco and Austin.
Just before Waco we passed West that last might had a huge explosion at a fertilizer factory. The subsequent damage was extensive and deadly, with the toll still unknown. We saw a few cop cars redirecting traffic and one ambulance heading north, which we assumed was connected to the explosion.
The weather was stinking, it rained heavily for quite sometime.
Last night in fact there was a huge thunderstorm and I slept through most of it and nearly an inch of rain fell in Dallas during the night.
As usual we belted along, the trucks doing about 75 mph and we have to travel faster than the trucks. Having said that, we crawled along for over an hour due to road works and ended up in a Maccas in Georgetown, just before Austin.We found the hotel ok, returned the car, went for a drink on the Riverwalk and ate dinner at a Churrascurria just up the road. Food terrific.Walked back slowly along the Riverwalk and in bed by 9.
