After a long drive through some beautiful country, we arrived safely in Houston with gondola in-tow. The drive from Dallas to Houston is probably about the same distance as L.A. to Las Vegas, but much easier on the driver. There's always something interesting to look at, and because it's a north-south drive, the sun isn't blazing in your face like it is half the time I've crossed the desert to or from Vegas.
No matter where I go with a gondola in-tow, it's always fun to see the reactions of people in other cars and at rest stops.
Tomorrow we'll do our best to get the gondola in the water using a tow truck, some duct tape, zip ties, bungee cords, a can of Crisco and harsh language, if necessary.
