South Texas Roadtrip Part 2
March 16-18, 2005
For the 5th consecutive year, I took a roadtrip during Spring Break. This trip was shorter than the ones I took the last two years (Delaware Trip Part 1 and Spring Training 2004 Roadtrip) because of limited time off. This trip was still action-packed, with almost 1,900 miles driven in three days.
The trip took me from Oklahoma City through Houston, San Antonio, and other south Texas destinations. It followed mostly the same route as the original South Texas Roadtrip did, except this one was in the opposite direction from the original. Also, this trip included mileage along the beltways of Houston and San Antonio, including Interstate 410, Interstate 610, and the Sam Houston Tollway. After driving around Interstate 410 in San Antonio, I took Interstate 10 west to Interstate 20, then took Interstate 20 back to Abilene to meet up with U.S. 277, which I took home. The reason for this route is that I had not yet driven Interstate 10 between San Antonio and Interstate 20. Also, after this trip is complete, the only interstate mileage I need to drive to clinch Texas' interstate mileage is the 0.92 mile of hidden Interstate 110 in El Paso.
