A Change of Plans

Here is a snippet from the fifth day of my drive from Michigan to Austin.

Made ya look! There was no fifth day of travel.

I had a reservation at Martin Creek Lake State Park in northeast Texas and planned to drive home from there on day five. But as I crossed from Arkansas into Texas, I made two observations.

  1. I would arrive at  the park at 4pm and would be exhausted as usual but have four more hours before I could contemplate sleep.
  2. The temperature that night was going to be hot, and I was not looking forward to sleeping in the it.

So I called the park to let them know I wasn’t coming, and I called Trudy to let her know I was coming home. As a result, the fourth day stretched to 13 hours, after which the drive from Michigan to Austin was done.
