On The Road to Texas

I'm going to be reposting updates from my dad's and myauthor blog here.

Today is the first day of the Davis Crossing Tour!

Of course all we’re doing today is traveling, but one must do that to get to events. J Unfortunately, our teleporter is currently out of commission. My hippopotamus sat on it. You can see his picture later in this post.

I washed the van this morning so we could put the nifty tour magnets on the side. Then I had to get cleaned up just 15 minutes before we pulled out of the driveway. Hence why my hair is wet in these pictures.

All packed up and ready to go. Like our snazzy shirts?

We didn’t leave until around 11AM this morning because it’s only eight hours to Dallas, our destination, and we haven’t any events until tomorrow at 9AM.

The morning hours were spent with last minute preparations. We had to unpack the van and pack the trailer because it was deemed that the van could not hold all the weight, though everything did fit inside! So we’re bringing the trailer with us on all our stops in the USA. We’ll have to leave it in Seattle when we go to Canada—too much of a hassle to bring across the border.

I'm holding Sam, my hippopotamus,
and my dad is holding Vinnie, the official tour rat.

We passed through Mississippi first, but I failed to get a picture of the welcome sign, sorry. I did, however, get a picture of the Tennessee welcome sign when we reentered TN on our way to Memphis. That’s the way the route goes.

As I am writing this blog post, we are driving through Arkansas. We saw a crop duster plane a few minutes ago, which was interesting. It’s cool to see them swoop over the fields and turn around for another pass.

Today’s state count will be four once we reach Texas. Four if you count Tennessee, that is. Some people might not, seeing as it’s where we started, but I do. It is a state after all.

I hope to see a lot of people at our events tomorrow!

  1. Bryan and Amanda,

    Looking forward to seeing ya'll (Texas slang) at Prestonwood Christian Academy tomorrow. I am a teacher at the school and I will be bringing my two boys (age 9 and 10) to hear both of you. Thanks for making the trip down.
