Amarillo, TX to Natchitoches, LA – 617 miles

Today was a waltz across Texas.

I left the hotel around sunrise. After picking up some Mcbreakfast I ran into some fog about 10 miles out of town. The fog was heavy at times and lasted most of the way to Wichita Falls. It wasn’t all that unpleasant and kept the morning sun out of my eyes.

Topping a hill near Electra, TX I spotted a state trooper coming towards me and slowed down 5 mph to the speed limit. Too late. He crossed the median and pulled over on the side of the road and waited for me to go by and then pulled me over. After producing my driver’s license and insurance card and answering some annoyingly direct questions about where I was going I received a warning for going 5 mph over the speed limit. Fair enough.

I managed to hit Dallas at mid-afternoon and didn’t run into any real traffic problems. Timing is everything. Some of the roads were down to one lane for construction and I am sure it would have been a parking lot during rush hour.

Thought about stopping in Shreveport, LA but it was a little early so I continued on to Natchitoches, LA. Had dinner at Popeye’s Chicken and found a room for the night.
