Ah!!! it is so good to be back home!!! Auburn is just so relaxing, but getting here, yesterday, was an adventure.

Our Adventure Home

Yesterday, our original plan was to leave Houston around 6:00 am and travel for approx. 12 hours on the road including lunch and be in Auburn around 6:00pm for dinner and so on. Well, our plan was great and on schedule until we hit the Texas and Louisiana border. At first, it seems like no big deal. We though… oh… a small traffic jam. no biggy, we will wait a little bit and move on. At worst we will be behind schedule for 30 min to an hour right? WRONG!!! The short wait went on from about 8:00am to about 10:30am. It was not until then did we finally get a chance to get off the highway. When we were getting off we saw two white trucks blocking I-10 and detouring all traffic to access roads. I ask the workers in the what truck, “how far up is the construction?” He replied, “there are no constructions, it’s a bad ass accident up there”. Ok so why did they block I-10 if it was only an accident? It was not until we finally got off the access road and got a chance to take our first break, when I asked someone in the gas station what’s going on and if there were an alternate route. The station attendent said, “yep, there was a chemical spill not to far from here, and there are also doing construction near Louisiana Border, so I would advise you to take the detour.” And so we did. The detour was pretty fun. We got a chance to drive through couple of small southern Louisiana towns. It was no big deal but it was pretty fun. We ended up having lunch in Eunice, before finally returning to I-10. The detour plus the wait tacked on 4 additional hours to our trip. We ended up not arriving to Auburn until 10:30 pm. Pretty Darn late, but I have to say… it was pretty fun. It was a long trip, but it was a fun trip. Thanks Hsiu, Johnson, and Min-Jye for making it so interesting!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!
