I’ve told you about our camping trips. Last weekend, we set a personal record of sorts. While our trips have mostly been short ones, we went to Northeast Texas, near Tyler. That was a trip of over 400 miles one way. Get this: San Antonio is deep in the heart of Texas. It’s 250 miles to Dallas, 200 miles to Houston and 550 miles to El Paso. While our trips would be to multiple states on the East Coast, we’ve never left Texas. In fact my last truck, which I had for 3 years never left the state.
This trip was a test. We are going to Yosemite later this year. We are going to have to drive 500 miles a day for three days. As nice as my truck is, I now know why I have flown whenever I’ve left this state for the past 10 years. 400-500 miles hauling a travel trailer is no joke. Doing it for three days in a row can’t be much fun.
