traveled 700 miles
still in USA
I have a few moments to let you know how I am. I appreciate your warm wishes.
Instead of going to Hot Springs, AK to escape Hurricane Gustav, my parents wanted to go to relatives' home in SW Houston.
Fearing empty gas (petrol) stations on I10West (since I need about 2 tanks of gas to travel from New Orleans to the Houston suburbs), I decided to go another route.
First north traveling through Louisiana and Mississippi, taking a left on I20, going back to Louisiana and into Texas, and then going south on US 59.
It was an adventure to drive 14 hours and drinking so much Coca Cola and coffee without getting ill.
Until I hear the all-clear to return, I stay in Texas.
