Mid 70s, mostly sunny, low humidity... This is the winter weather that sells desert real estate. I'd be foolish to leave it in my rear view mirror. Besides, my friends are here.
Meanwhile, the Texas coast forecast looks like this.
Similar daytime temperatures, warmer nights, a little cloudier, maybe some showers, higher humidity. But it will get oppressively swampy before long. Now is sort of a weather sweet spot for that region. Go now or wait until autumn.
I know, I know. The Texas trip is mostly about seeing new places, experiencing new things. And the joy of being on the move. So I'll go. But maybe a few days later. That's what's handy about not needing campground reservations. I'm not locked in.
