Road Trip from California to Texas


 I'm still on a blogging break but I wanted to give an update.

We are finally getting settled into our new place in Texas, which I find far less interesting than the journey I took to get here.  :o)  However it is nice to have things in order. 

I wish you all a great weekend!

  1. OMW James, is that THE Route 66? We have Route 62 in South Africa, emulated from the US. It's a fun route especially for us bikers. Good to see you again. Greetings from Jo, Tanzania

  5. What area of Texas do you now call home, James? It's a big state and I'm sure you will quickly find lots of material for your great photography talents! I drove 150 miles just a couple weeks ago to photograph one of the state's most historic courthouses, so a 300-mile round trip is nothing for we Texans!

  14. That is one hell of an awesome photograph James!!! Classic Americana at its very best. I drove along parts of Route 66 in 2009, visiting places such as Amboy and Kingman... and I've been wanting to go back ever since :-)

    Hope you enjoy your new place... I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures from your trip.

  21. Grapevine is in the Dallas area as I recall. You are not exactly next door but closer to Tulsa than you were. Welcome to the neighborhood. I have missed your blog.

  22. James, I echo other... Texas??? I can't say I see a very snug cultural fit for you there. You must have your reasons (work, I bet). This is an awesome Route 66 shot. Classic in monochrome. You and Pat shadowing each other?
