PUMPJACK – The Ozzfest 2k diaries, Chapter 10 of 12:  Dallas, Houston, and The Gorge

–A short story in 12 chapters

That night, we left Houston.  The next morning, we were further north, but still in Texas.  Later that afternoon, we were still in Texas.  What the hell?  Does this state ever end???  Good lord, I swear it took over 10 hours just to get the heck out of Texas.  Good thing they gave us 2 days to get to WA.

That was the longest ride ever, as Clay wanted to take the scenic route – Texas, thru Colorado, thru part Wyoming, thru Idaho, and finally into Washington.
