The Shoestring Catch

Travel Day

Today was one of our few intense travel days. We left Houston at 8:30 AM and arrived in Atlanta around 10:00 PM.  We stopped for breakfast at a Whataburger in Orange, TX for 20 minutes at 10:30AM, but other than that we only stopped to get gas: once in Lafayette, LA at 12:30 PM and again 100 miles south of Montgomery, AL on I-65 at 5:00PM. The Whataburger we stopped in was one of the nicest I have ever seen. There was sports memorabilia hanging on the walls, including a Wayne Gretzky jersey, a Troy Aikman Jersey, and a David Carr Jersey (One of these things is not like the other ones…). We each drove one full tank of gas.  I took the first shift, followed by Andrew, and then Eric, who drove the home stretch to Atlanta through some light rain. We had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the car for lunch, and they tasted fine even though Eric accidentally used the loaf of bread as a pillow for a solid two hour stretch.
