Steve, please forgive us for the speed (62 m.p.h.) at which we blew around San Antonio on the 1604. Annie's gas foot got itchy and leaden, and there was no slowing her down.
Once we got north of the city, the scenery got KABLOWIE! pretty, but hard to drive through even on the interstate. We gained some altitude without realizing it, and my side of the Sleep Number got very, very firm. Chris warned us about exploding mattresses in higher elevations, but we thought she meant Pike's Peak. We deflated before something bad (like another hill) happened. This must be why biological implants are not filled with air.
We're west of Sonora, and the scenery just got WOWIE KABLOWIE! awesome. Someone look this up for me - is this considered high chaparral? I'd Google, but I'm already using my one bar of 1G to send this post instead of calling 911 or something. Bring me my horse and six-shooter! Throw over my poncho and cheroot!

Texas rest stops are very friendly to overnighters. Some of them have dump stations and potable water. Often, they have free wifi. So far, it hasn't been strong enough to stream TV or watch an endless loop of Marcel the Shell with Shoes On. We stayed in a picnic area last night. There were trucks coming in and leaving throughout the night, but somehow that anchors my sleeping mind and helps me remember where I am.
Nicole and Darlene challenged us to do 200 miles yesterday, and we did 252. Plus, see, that's more proof that we're not stalkers, because they're encouraging us. Two hundred is probably our comfortable limit, though; otherwise, we're missing out on primo hours of rest area wifi, and the Nutty Bars are all gone from the machines.
Our preference is boondocking someplace pretty, but it takes some work to find and settle into some of those places. While we're traveling, it's easier to use the quick-in/quick-out method of overnighting. Now we're nearing some free wifi, courtesy of the Lone Star State, so here goes nothing ...
