When you think of places unlike Texas, Russia is a place which many people would consider to be the antithesis of what it means to be Texan. However, I, for one, vehemently disagree with that assessment. Texas and Russia share many commonalities, from extreme weather, to rugged individualism, to an affinity for delicious meats. One thing for which both Texas and Russia are known is that our people know what it’s like to travel for hours without really getting anywhere. So today I’ve decided to share with you some experiences on traveling in Texas, which might help you connect more with my home state than you previously thought possible.
First, because Texas is so large, it is more and more common to fly between the large cities than to try and negotiate your way up across the state on one of the many highway systems. Flights in the U.S. are notoriously cheap, especially when traveling in-state, and unfortunately, the Texas Department of Transportation is always seeming to find new and creative ways to make driving as miserable and painstaking as possible.
Second, if you took the time to travel across the state, you would spend between 12-15 hours on simply driving as it is over 1,300 km from east to west, as well as there are so many additional cities, towns, landmarks and things to do along the way. You could spend a lifetime seeing and doing all there is to do in this great state.
Third, there are many critical facets to a well-planned in-state excursion, and one of the most notable is the all-important stop at gas stations, convenience stores and restaurants. Luckily, no matter your direction or route, there are choices aplenty as you traverse the multitude of must-see attractions and day-trips. Aside from Bucc-ee’s, a personal favorite I detailed in another blog post, there are many places I cannot help but continue to explore on each excursion. There is the Czech-Stop in West, Texas, Bill-Miller’s Bar-B-Q in San Antonio, Bluebonnet Café in Marble Falls and George’s in Waco, just to name a few, as my list is quite extensive.
As you consider possible destinations for your future travels, remember that Texas has so many things to offer that you might never leave. It took me 33 years to move on, and there’s always the allure of coming home which could eventually call me back.
