24 Jun 2007

This was a half day drive, and I don't have any pictures. I stayed with my friend Kelly (a.k.a the most adorable Reaver ever); I got into Austin around lunchtime, so Kelly, her roomate, and I went out to lunch, and then they showed me around downtown Austin. We ended up at a CD store. As I was on my way up to the counter to pay, Kelly's roommate asked me what I was getting. I held up my copies (well, soon, to be my copies) of Rum, Sodomy, & the Lash and Hell's Ditch, and she nodded knowingly. Of course you like The Pogues

Day 4: Austin, TX to Benton, AR

25 Jun 2007

No pictures from this day, mostly because it rained very, very heavily for most of my drive out of Texas. We're talking slow way down, wipers on full still not quite clearing the windshield, full concentration on the road downpour.
