On Tuesday Scott dropped me off at the airport and I met up with my Benedict in Houston, he left four hours earlier from New Orleans. In Houston we drove around his old hospital M.D. Anderson in the humongous facility they call the Texas Medical Center. We had lunch around Rice University and hit the road with this, our state of the art navigational aid, also known as last Tuesday's USA TOday weather map. So you can see Houston on there, on the eastern border of Texas and Los Angeles on the Pacific coast. Suprisingly the map was pretty helpful and gave us an idea of where we were travelling. Who knew you could drive 1600 miles on a weather map alone. And we even knew what the weather was like in Yakima, Washington.
