It's Called 'Tacking'

I've been driving for two days and I'm still in Texas. I don't know what else to say.

I left Austin and took a nice secondary road through the Texas Hill Country. If you're a wine buff you'll think you died and went to heaven; one wine-tasting vineyard after another. Smack dab in the middle of Texas, imagine!

290W dropped me on to I-10 heading for El Paso; but as I drove and drove through what only appears to be nothing-land, I quickly tired of the Interstate and battling broadside winds.

So I veered from my track and headed in a diagonal direction to Pecos (pronounced Pay-cos, I was corrected right away). Never been, and I've been to El Paso more than once.  From here it's any woman's guess; after all, as long as I head West I'll eventually hit water.
