On Monday we drove another 12 hours into San Antonio. Louisianna is deceptively very long while Mississipi was realtively short. We saw lots of signs for Casinos in Biloxi, MS. We drove around New Oreleans but it would have been fun to stop if we had the time. LA is alot of marsh lands which meant alot of bridges. The longest one was 22 miles! I was very glad to have reached San Antonio but of course we hit traffic in the downtown area right as I got in. Nothing too bad but I just wanted out of the car!
Things I learned:
cruise control is a must!
There are plenty of hotels along the way so I was glad I didn't plan where I was going to stop and instead simply picked one when I got really tired
Most of the roads were 2 lanes with a 70mph speed limit and we still counted over 20 cars stopped for speeding along the way.
Houston is a big city and has a crazy mixing bowl highway system that I drove straight through.
GPS is a must!
Save all gas and hotel receipts for reimbursement, it got expensive.
Already though I am glad to have my car, definitely worth the drive!
