Jun 2018 It’s a Good Life in Texas!
Tonight, incredibly, Boyd and I find ourselves at the halfway point of our journey around the perimeter of America. Since arriving in Texas, the realization of how enormous it is has set in. We’ve flown from Beaumont in the far eastern Gulf of Texas to Houston, to Brownsville, to Laredo, to Del Rio – and that’s where we’ve settled for the night.Â We’ve flown low and we’ve flown high, staying under cloud layers at times and climbing to escape the bumps and the ridiculously high temperatures other times. We’ve had wonderful views down low and some teeth jarring bumps that convinced us it was time to climb higher. All along, we continue to meet interesting people and the taildraggers they love, and we feel very fortunate to be flying this incredible journey.
