After yesterday's marathon driving session I slept in today. Last night I was thinking about my schedule and I realized that I don't really have “weekends” anymore. My off days are generally taken up by writing these posts, recording the podcasts and researching the cities that I am in for things like food, massages and laundry services. When I planned this tour I gave myself an extra 24 hours in each city in case of rain outs, but I am really beginning to wish I had more time. If I were ever to do this tour again I most certainly would give myself more time in each city to explore. If I had more people with me I am sure it would be a bit easier as I could sleep or write for the website in the car. Unfortunately as it stands now my days are filled with driving, writing, recording and ballgames. Still not a bad way to spend a summer.
I drove around Houston for a little while looking for a place for lunch before settling on Pappas Seafood House. This is one of the last cities where I am staying in a hotel. For the rest of the tour I have places set up for me to stay which will lower my overhead for this tour considerably. I will detail how I set up my lodging options in a future Off Day post.
