16-hour drives should end in a solid night of sleep. Mine didn't. How could it though? I mean, this place is just about perfect. I've had excellent hosts at each stop along the way, but somehow I lucked out and found THREE people to stay with in Austin. I slept about a half-hour this morning and have consumed three cups of coffee and two mexican breakfasts thus far...am I rambling?
Anyway, I'm staying as long as I please because the sun is warm, the people are friendly, and the guys at Lance Armstrong's shop let me know the right spots to ride.
