Wow…. I got to the Pasadena TX part and stopped. Yep that certainly had to be a portion for being the worst. Lived there for 2 years. Still have stuff down there. Will never go back to get it.
Hate to here about the self inflicted injuries. I know the ride your talking about… drove that trip many a time. First couple of times took 95 to 10…. Next couple of times… 85 to 75 to 10…. 75 has got to be THE longest stretch of nothing. Especially at 3 am. The sign designating it as “The Lost Highway” doesn’t help that feeling either.
Glad that your still riding.
