Over the last 2 weeks we’ve experienced life on the road in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma.
Here are some observations:
- The people are very friendly and helpful
- The many Trump supporters we met were nice people – we expected to meet horror show characters
- There are churches everywhere; many big, brash and very lavish
- Driving and parking in cities is very easy. We saw no road rage in 2,500 miles of driving
- The countryside is beautiful; much of it unspoilt apart from advertising along the Interstates
- Staying in motels is a bit of a lucky dip
- We saw no open carry guns, except the police of course
- April is the perfect time to go before it gets too hot
- We were often the only people walking in a town
- There is patriotism everywhere – large flags line the roads
And here are images not yet shown on this blog…..

We will return to the States in a few weeks, but first we are off to Western Canada.
