Off in a Cloud of Dust and Eagle Piss
This is what Dallas looked like when I came through today. I was stuck in traffic for miles, with emergency vehicles squeezing by on the right and semi trucks fore and aft. And a hell of a storm threatening. Eventually, the accident cleared out, and the storm moved off to the east. All we got was a bit of rain.
Downtown Dallas is awesome. Too bad I didn't get stuck in traffic there! There's no way I was getting off the freeway, even to look at the awesome skyscrapers.
South-eastern Oklahoma is very pretty, but I didn't take time to stop for pictures. Looks a bit like the Hill Country. Somehow, I got on a toll road, which is good, as the roads through Oklahoma SUCK big green donkey dick! Twice, I pulled off 69 to see if I had a flat tire. I couldn't play CDs because the road was too bumpy. Tomorrow, I can take this toll road across Missouri. I will be cruising at 75 and listening to whatever I want. Chandra told me gas would be cheap in Oklahoma, and she was right. $3.24/gallon. Not bad. Can you believe that? Whoever thought that $3.24/gal would be "not bad?"
So. St. Louis tomorrow night, and Iowa the next. Woot!
It's fun to be on the road again!
Tonight, I am in a motel that I really can't afford, but dining on a Power Bar. Hey. It's either that or peanuts.
