Where I stayed
Two highlight stand out. Well three, if you count another day of successful driving. They drive very fast here on small roads. I am waiting for a head on crash, yet, haven't heard of any.
First, we were told to have a meal at the Salt Lick, a BBQ place in Driftwood, just south of Austin.
The parking lot should have been our first clue that this was a huge place. It would have held about 1000 cars. They were several fields roped off to form several large lots.
The smell of burning wood could be smelled from a far distance.
The second event was finding our way to the hotel. We do not have a decent map, but had copied the directions from Google maps. However, the map we were using was not for the hotel, but how to get to downtown New Braufels. I drive, my navigator gives directions. As we entered a traffic circle, Dianna says, "turn left at the second spur". I had no clue, we laughed as there was no way any hotel was in this area anyway. After a few turns and turnarounds we found our home.
A good day.
