We finally made it to Texas! We are in the small city of Beaumont and have already noticed many differences from home. There are different speed limits on the highways during daylight hours compared to nightime hours. The gas stations sell single bottles of beer on ice, however open containers are illegal... Go figure. Football is everything here and nascar is definitely secondary. We ran into a group called the 8th Wonder Wheelers which is a group of Houston Texan fans who meet before home games and have a great time. They filled the campground on Friday and left for the game on Sunday morning. Once again, there are many people living and working out of this campground. The trucks all leave for work between 5:00 and 7:00 am, we met one couple that is staying here while working that said it was worth it to save an extra hour and a half commute every morning. Makes a lot of sense to me... The trains here are serious. They are pushed and pulled by multiple engines and can take up to five minutes to cross an intersection... We also ran into a variety of grackle called the great tailed grackle that sings like you wouldn't believe, almost like a mockingbird. We aren't in a tourist area right now, but we'll still post the photo's we have.
