Heading to Corpus Christi this morning, staying until July 2nd.

Figured if any of you Tejas Goobers want to meet up for a drink or a coffee I'll be down.

We're passing through TN, corner of GA, AL, LA, MS, and TX (not necessarily in that order, I drive in circles a lot :lol )

Shoot me a PM if you're interested and I'll give you my cell number.

You guys crack me up.

I actually do need to make a trip to FL within the next year to see a few close friends from when I lived there in the 90s. So that might be happening before too long.

We drove down from VA into TN, then AL (59S through AL is one of the worst roads I've been on in years, absolute garbage), through MS and LA, and around the gulf coast from LA to TX. Picked the wife up in Freer TX and drove back to Corpus Christi, TX. Texas is really stacting to grow on me some, especially the smaller towns.

Ate at "Blackbeard's on the Beach" last night. (Anyone really surprised? lol ) and it was delicious. Definitely recommend trying their mixed drink called the grog, three different rums, pineapple juice, and a splash of banana liqueur. Limit 2 per customer and I felt the reasoning behind that for sure.

On a side note, I will do everything in my power to avoid Houston like the plague from now on. A buddy of mine calls it "the Armpit of Texas" and now I know why. Worst drivers ever, we almost got his 3 times on interstate, once was a semi truck that ran us up to the concrete barrier by drifting into our lane. No idea how we escaped that one without damage.

Mia had to use the restroom really bad, so we stopped and hit 3 different fast food joints, all of which were exceedingly rude to us about their restrooms being closed. Finally a Cricket cell phone store let her use theirs. Had to jump the curb doing a burnout in the Silverado just to get back out into traffic as we sat there for 5 minute with no one letting us out. F$#@ HOUSTON!

Otherwise trip is going great.

We will Mickey, extra careful.

1959, we ate there on our last trip to San Antonio. Pretty darn good for a fast food joint. Their Dr. Pepper shake was really good.
