Kim says, “Monotony builds as we come to the end of our trek in Texas”. Today’s route (Day 34) on farm roads took the team through some heavily logged areas which resulted in heavy logging truck traffic.

We have now come to the land of swamps, bayous, Spanish moss , little green lizards,and areas where you don’t want to go too far off road to find a potty break as an alligator may be lurking there.

The team headed out this morning from outside of Cold Spring towards Shepherd and kept up a pretty fast pace as they cycled on towards Romayor and Dolen.

After a short lunch stop in the middle of nowhere between Thicket and Honey Island, the team pedaled on towards Kountze where Kim made a quick stop to buy some “greens” and smoked neck bones; not sure what this concoction will be but if Kim’s cooking it will be good.

From Kountze to Silsbee was a short trip and the campground was just a short ways outside of Silsbee.

Very nice digs here at the Red Cloud RV park. This is our last night in Texas and we will treat ourselves tonight at the Honky Tonk Texas Bar and Grill located right next to our campground.
