Thanks to the Interstate Highway System, it is now possible to travel across the country from coast to coast without seeing anything.
The few times we’ve driven Houston to Maine to Houston we’ve made an adventure out of it, but this time we hit the road, kept going until we got to Rockport and didn’t see a thing. Well, that’s not exactly true as there were hundreds of signs identifying gas stations, motels, McDonald’s, Subway, Dunkin’ Donuts, Cracker Barrel and the like.
The highlight of the trip? A stop at a Virginia KFC where all thoughts of healthy left my head when I learned this one still serves chicken livers. Not many people must order them because I was served enough for 3 people!
Long days on the road were bad enough, but when cars and trucks were lined up in an unmoving caravan for more than 2 hours things got a little testy. We never did find out what the holdup was, but my guess is it had something to do with an 18 wheeler. Good thing we had audio books which kept us entertained while we waited for wheels to start turning again.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
