We got everything packed up Saturday morning and hit the road at noon exactly. The trip meter read exactly 2000 miles.
We stopped in Balmorhea for lunch at the Cave of the Bear (La Cueva de Oso) Mexican restaurant. The service was extremely slow as there was just one waitress and about 8-9 tables, but the food was really good, and worth the wait.
From there, we took 17 North and picked up I-20 towards Dallas. We’re going to get East of Dallas at least, and possibly all the way to Little Rock tonight.
