Done for the day in Mamou LA. How could I not stop in a town with a name like “Mamou”?
Fetched up between Buna and Kirbyville for the day.
Breaking for lunch in Silsbee. 70 miles behind me already today—it’s almost a shame I’ll be knocking off after 90.
Ending the day in Coldspring TX. Two days out of Austin, I am 12 miles short of where I predicted I’d be after three.
Met Sue & Ken riding westbound on the Southern Tier. Just crossed into Section 5 in Navasota. #acasotier
Planned to stop in La Grange, but had plenty of daylight, so pushed on to Burton.
heading over to Red House. Come join me before I push off on Part 2 of my tour.
Plotting out schedule for remainder of trip. Think I can make Austin – St Augustine in 17 days with conservative schedule. #acasotier
It’s a day earlier than planned, and not at all how I planned, but I am in Austin. #acasotier
Rear tire shredded just outside Kerrville. Tour interrupted one day before intended rest.
The tour of Texas’ shittiest pavement continues. This isn’t chipseal, it’s boulderseal.
Passing through Del Rio, into Section 4 of #acasotier. I think my spaceship knows which way to go.
In Sanderson TX. Done for the day. Time to get clean and get fed.
Made ok time into Marathon. Stopping for lunch, then on to Sanderson.
Just met Max Nofziger here in Alpine TX.
Hey look, I crossed the 1000-mile mark in my tour today. And the 1100-mile mark, too.
Stopping in Van Horn for breakfast. May end day at McDonald Observatory. If I have enough daylight, will push on to Fort Davis-not likely.
Both hotels listed in Sierra Blanca on #acasotier map appear defunct. New hotel is the Americana Inn on S side of I-10.
In Sierra Blanca TX. Tried to make it to Van Horn, but would have run out of daylight.
