As the first days or better said first week was brutally hot, we have been met by the first cold front of our trip. It came complete with thunderstorm and copious amounts of rain. As being the tradition we pitched our tent in the lowest spot we could find to find ourselves ten minutes later in four inches of water. The video will follow shortly.
Nonetheless Texas has been very good to us so far. The dumpsters on our current route are fuller than the ones on the Gulf coast when we came south and 'Friendly Texans' is not a sarcastic joke as I always thought. Texans are in fact extremely friendly, with the necessary exception of course. (referring to the man who reached for his gun when he saw us preparing a meal on his church's grounds.)
However, Texas is slowly running out from underneath our still awesome Schwalbe Marathon tyres (thank you again Huntington Cycle and Sport) as we approach Louisiana where without question there will be more adventures waiting for us. But before we leave Texas we get to visit at least two national forests: Davy Crockett and Sabine. We have no idea what to expect because nobody we've asked has ever been there. Although I expect lots of trees.
