MELLOW YELLOW ROAD TRIP, CHAPTER 14:  IN WHICH WE TWO-STEP ACROSS TEXAS

Day 14:  Amarillo, TX to Tyler, TX.  Today was another day of logging miles as we head back east. Thankfully we traveled alone today without our little flying friends. We zipped through three letterboxes in Bowie, Texas, and Decatur, Texas.

Ken is very persistent and usually successful when it comes to searching for well-hidden letterboxes. As we were about to give up on this one, he found it in a crevice in this old cedar tree.
Oops, lost track of our cemetery etiquette

Unfortunately, we arrived in the Dallas-Fort Worth area just in time for rush hour. We thought we knew traffic from living in Atlanta. We learned differently. We were wishing we knew how to get to Kyle & Carrie's so we could meet the famous little button, Laura Kate. It wasn't meant to be, and we ended the day in Tyler, Texas (east of Dallas), headed for Laurel, Mississippi, tomorrow. In light of Hurricane Gustav's recent visit to New Orleans, we've decided to postpone our visit to this favorite city.
