Geography isn’t my strong suit. When I moved to Louisiana I had no idea that I was a mere 30 or so minutes from Texas! When I discovered this fact (more than a year into my Louisiana residency) it had to be quickly remedied.
My friend David and I hopped in my tiny hatchback and headed for the border. Of course I had to find some cowboy hats for our journey to Texas (my first time to the Lonestar state other than an airport layover.) We found cheap straw hats that had to suffice.
What a fun trip and some great memories. We drove about 20 miles past the border and found nowhere to buy a lottery ticket or any other Texas proof things. We did see the border sign, which of course I got a photo of but have no idea where it is.
What kinds of crazy trips have you taken?
