Bayous & Blues Roadtrip
December 16-19, 2002

This roadtrip took me throughout the southeast and south-central parts of the country during the first week of my Winter Break from college. Monday I drove Interstate 35 South from Oklahoma City to Dallas, then I got on Interstate 45 South and ended up in the Houston area. Tuesday I drove east on Interstate 10 to Baton Rouge and Interstate 12 east to the New Orleans area. I also attended the New Orleans Bowl college football game that night between Cincinnati and North Texas and saw North Texas win 24-19. Wednesday I drove west on Interstate 10 through New Orleans before I exited north onto Interstate 55 through Mississippi and the southwest corner of Tennessee to West Memphis, Arkansas. Thursday I drove west on Interstate 40 and headed home.
