my long haul
An eleven hour drive is too much...and I really like driving (as I have stated many times). I drove into Mobile, Alabama last night from San Antonio, Texas. I've taken this drive many times before so there were no surprises. But it is almost winter and the days are shorter. It was dusk as I entered Louisiana and dark by the time I crossed the long bridge over the bayou. I was tempted to stop in Baton Rouge but I pressed ahead. If it had been summer I would have had 3-4 more hours of daylight That makes a difference. But, no. So I drove on. Doing 70 mph. Eleven hours on the road. All in one time zone. Eleven hours. And then I was done.
