Back in December I decided I needed to go on a major adventure and the day has come. I am currently on the road and will try to keep this updated as often as I can. To read about stuff before Day 1 and possibly other trip stuff as well ------> twowheelin.wordpress.com Day 1 Corpus Christ, Tx to Galveston, Tx ~ 230 miles The day started a little slow and chaotic. There were still some things that needed to be moved from my apartment, and I had an inspection with the property manager before turning over the keys. I was all packed up and ready to leave Corpus at 11am. There were big storms brewing all around me, but I luckily stayed dry all day. I arrived to Galveston in just under 5 hours of good ridin'. Before I left Corpus I had made contact with a really nice guy from the couchsurfing.com website. He was just finishing work as I arrived. We sat in his backyard for awhile chatting about life, adventures, and beer making. I received the beer making basics class, and could*probably*mix up a wicked home brew batch after that lesson. My gracious host then took me around Galveston for a very informative tour and dinner at a*shrimp*& Gumbo place! It was excellent. He even cooked up the leftovers with some salsa & eggs with fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. Thats all for now - headin towards Baton Rouge, La.
