We're in Rosenburg, TX (just outside of Houston).   I just drive through downtown Houston, at night.  Finally got off the never-ending road construction (jersey bouncers after dark) and one stoppage for an accident at the Brazos river, then the GPS put us out in the middle of a bean field.

Finally found the hotel, and the counter guy tells us that the GPS takes everyone to the bean field.  It's quite common.

Houston traffic sucks, even after rush hour on a Thursday night.   And, are they ever going to finish that bridge over the Houston ship channel?

Tomorrow, we'll get into a gunfight.

Hey Pawpaw,
Welcome to Houston!
I've been here for more than 30 years, and the freeways are ALWAYS under construction!
Good luck!

Nah, construction is the Houston past time... It'll NEVER end!

When you add a few million each year since 1970 (embellishing some, maybe) you have to rebuild and add freeways. After midnight in 1970 you could stop your motorcycle on top of the 610 overpass at the Southwest freeway (59) look around and maybe see one car in the distance. Don't try that now.
