trip to Branson for me. A feast of perfect weather
was gorged upon by many presidents and fellow
We started from Austin
wednesday afternoon and settled into
a hotel in Jefferson, Tx for the night. Next

heading north to Branson, but as usual
we took the long way there.
Finally crossed into AR at the town of Doddridge
where we took a break.

We took all the little backroads we could
to Danville (ithink) where we picked up hwy 7
You really can't go wrong on most

so Rob could break in the new RT.
I even got to lead for a while
After we got back, some wingers
wanted to start a rumble
