First report from Texas

I arrived in Texas just after noon local time yesterday, flying in to the airport in Houston. On the flight from Orlando I saw the Gulf of Mexico for the first time in my life, New Orleans (got good pics of the French Quarter and the causeway across Lake Pontchartrain), offshore oil rigs, Johnson Space Center and the Astrodome, and then touched down in Houston. Waited there 'til 1:30 and took off for Austin. The girl at the car rental place recognized me from when my school board commercial ran on E!'s The Soup a few weeks ago!

The car rental people said that they didn't have too much to choose from at the moment. I said "Give me the most Texas-ish thing you got." The girl said "You want the big white Jeep." So that's what I'm driving.

I'm staying with friends in Travis County. If I'm not mistaken, this is the home turf of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Today I went down Highway 281 to San Antonio and visited the Alamo. Am having trouble uploading pics at the moment but hope to have them up soon.

Tomorrow I'm hitting Austin, then driving up to Waco to hook up with my brother -in-law. Butt-Numb-A-Thon starts at noon on Saturday.

This has already become far more an adventure than I could possibly let on right now.

More soon :-)
