LOCATION: Houston, Texas
CAMPGROUND: Another Harvest Host site – Lone Star Flight Museum. On the SE side of Houston. Huge, level and paved parking lot. Interesting museum. Museum closes at 5:00 and we had the place to ourselves. Quiet night. 4 stars out of 5
WEATHER: Very nice, but super windy. High 70
DRIVING DISTANCE: 2 hours
We got a fairly early start from Lake Texana, aiming to hit Houston mid-day when hopefully the traffic would be calmer.
The winds were gusting from the south and we were heading mostly east, so the crosswinds were not fun. Every time I took one of my hands off the wheel, we veered scarily. Of course I was driving!
When we were within 15 miles of the museum, George took over as the Houston traffic was frightening for me. We managed to avoid the toll roads, and were amazed at all the spaghetti junctions.
Rob and Irene pulled in about 10 minutes after our arrival at the museum. After we got settled in, we toured the museum. It was very interesting, especially for George. Lots of airplanes!
The best part was doing a simulated flight. I’m afraid I crashed my plane several times!
Rob and Irene found a Vietnamese restaurant not too far away, but since we didn’t want to unhook and drive in Houston traffic any more, George and I stayed in for dinner.
DINNER: A simple affair since it was just the 2 of us…..toasted naan with sauteed onions, summer sausage, sun-dried tomatoes, and feta. Side salad with some good tomatoes we found today.
