Today i was of to Texas. A place i have always wanted to visit. When i think of America the place that springs to mind apart from the obvious landmarks is this state. Once again it poured with rain and had massive thunderstorms and i slept through them. I checked my weather site i use to check the weather in the places i go to and it Texarkana had a tornado warning in place.Great now all i can think about is the film Twister and flying cows and tractors. I asked the check out girl what i should do i f i get trapped near a tornado. She said you could either try to get to a bridge and hide underneath it or if near houses try and seek shelter. So i had to knock on a house and ask if they mind if i could hide with them. IN THE MIDDLE OF TEXAS !!!!!  Knowing my luck i will get the family that has a family tree that goes in a circle. The Texas chain saw massacre ring any bells..I  think i will just try to out run the tornado than go into the house of the local inbreds..

Now as the weather was miserable i had to drive with the roof up.Its been about 8 days since i had to drive like this and was it the most boring drive. The roads were completely straight. I did not have to turn of for 150 miles. Just a straight road with slight deviations along the way. I am so glad i had cruise control or my foot would of gone to sleep like i was. The view were boring, the road was boring in fact the whole journey was so uneventful i started counting road cones in a 50 mile stretch.. Now back home you would be in the thousands.. Here i counted 23..23 road cones and they were just sat next to the side of the road. Oh i will be so glad when this finishes

Now this is confusing.Texarkana is split down the middle by the state line. And guess what i ended up going to the wrong hotel. I needed the Texas one not the Arkansas one. Who thinks of putting a town on the state border.They do that cause the town has to be boring and has no life. One thing it does have is MULLET HAIRCUTS. Most of the blokes had greasy mullets and some even wore dungarees. I have entered the twilight zone. I have come back to the 60's not 2008..

Tomorrow i am of to WACO where the famous siege happened in 1993.That place has to be more exciting than here which is The Place Time Forgot !!!!
