Leg 8: The Scenic Route from “The Big Easy” to “Keep Austin Weird”

After we barely survive the streets of New Orleans we are going to hit the trail again headed north towards Missouri (the bastard child of the Midwest) and drift our way into the plains and down into Texas. This 47 mile trek should be around 2300 miles taking us through a variety of environments as we leave the wetlands of the Mississippi and eventually get to the hot Texas wilderness. It looks like this will be March-April 2015 so hopefully the temperature won’t be too high or we may end up adjusting our travel hours to stay out of the midday sun. Some highlights include…

  • Leg 8Three major Texas cities
  • Little Rock
  • Oma and the rest of Anna’s family
  • The Katy Trail
  • Six Flags over Texas
  • Wineries and Breweries
