Farther to Austin

It definitely is farther to Austin from Hollister than from Emporia. On Saturday, I took the more rural route - a long day. Now believe I can cut of an hour using an alternate route. We would like to avoid both Dallas and Fort Worth. US 79 through East Texas directly into Austin is very good. Getting from Ft. Smith, AR, to US 79 is the next step. Perhaps we'll try the other way, using US 259 through eastern OK coming back. Think we will leave on Tuesday, perhaps stay overnight in Fort Smith. Do some sight-seeing along the way.

It was a very good day! ;-)
