ARRIVED IN AUSTIN TX.
Well,I got to Austin about 5am Tuesday morning. I went a little faster than I thought for a few reasons:
– the first being I was being chased by a nasty storm;
…so as I took shelter, I decided to rehydrate.
Therin lay the dilemma: should I be patriotic and go with the Irish Rose,or should I go ghetto and do the Mad Dog ?
Decisions, decisions, decisions.
Screw it, I`ll just have a coffee Mr.Pattell – cream, no sugar please……
– the second reason was that my new GPS puked, so I decided to navigate the living hell that is Houston by night rather than fight the daytime traffic relying solely on my celestial navigation skills………………..
2:17 am and 68 deg.
Anyway, back to Sunday at 4:30 am – all packed and ready to go,
And a stop in Ocala at the Don Garlits Museum,housing many of Don’s record breaking dragsters from the `50`s up to the present.
So much nostalgia and record breaking cars and engines, all made by Don way back when;
and Don is alive and well – of course I had to ask him for any “Go Fast” tips for the bike…
He said come back on Thursday,he`ll hook me up.I said i`ll be in Austin TX by then.
I know says Don………
As I was leaving I found Jesus. I could`ve sworn he rode a BMW but all things considered, we`re all travellers on the highway of life.
Can I get a hallelujah?
I said can I…..oh never mind…….
