First Stop: Crockett, Texas

Be sure you are right.  Then go ahead. – Davy Crockett

Taking a road trip with Pretty and the old woman Slow is like pulling taffy.  You pull and pull the candy when it’s warm and then you twist and turn it until it finally snaps and breaks off into a piece you can eat.  We rode and rode and we stopped and stopped to read historical markers and ooh and aah over building murals and I don’t know what all until my patience snapped and broke like taffy.

The Six Flags of Texas flying over Davy Crockett Memorial

If you ask me and certainly no one has, I think it’s overkill for just a place where a man wearing a coonskin cap took a break on a trip from Tennessee to San Antonio.  Or was the coonskin cap the Daniel Boone guy?  Oh, well.  Close enough.

Sometimes we stopped at a park and Pretty took us sightseeing…

And The Red Man was the Navigator for 18 of the 20 hours on the road

Even the Navigator got tired

All I can say is that we were packed like sardines in that pickup cab for way too long and it was Too Close for Comfort, if you catch my drift.

Get me outta here Percy…I need to lay my weary head down on a pillow in this nice king-sized bed up in here tonight…catch you later, Sports Fans.
