    My Trip Report

    First time road tripping to Vegas. I don't usually do so well in a car, so wish me luck!

    Left Crosby, TX around 7:30 and made it to Albuquerque,NM around 9:00. Had a quick lunch stop in Wichita Falls. My husband, T, was really surprised that I did so well. There's meds for that, and I took them. Better living through chemistry!

    Also made a quick stop on Route 66 for a picture and shot glass. Will try to post pics. Shouldve practiced before leaving.

    Stopped for the night at La Quinta. Very nice room for $100. Comfy bed, lots of pilows, a big deal and comfy recliner. Had a fridge and microwave in the closet. Tub and shower. Pantene shampoo go anyone interested. Very dog friendly. Saw pups of all sizes.

    Now, 8:30 and we're on the road to Vegas. Yesss!
    Oh btw, LQ has free breakfast. Coffee, eggs, bananas, yogurt, cereal and waffle bar.

    Good luck from Austin! Wish I was also on my way but I’ll live vicariously.

    If I had known you were coming through my town I would have had you stop and say hello. Or, at least give you a nice place to eat for dinner, based on what you like. Got to love the free LQ breakfast. Best wishes.

    No black helicopters! Just a dirty windshield!!;) The trip was great. We got back on Sunday, and I will update. I was not able to get on here while in Vegas, so hopefully, my pictures will help me remember the hilights!

    Anxious to hear how the drive was. I have thought about doing it but the distance to just get out of Texas is so long and I would expect very boring.

    @queentata hope you have a great trip! Love the road trip aspect!

    Every visit to Vegas (except 1) we've done has been made by car. We lived in Houston for 16 years and know that drive well. Now we road trip from Denver.

    Lots of luck!
