Apr 1, 2005 - Houston, Texas, USA

Well, after embibing slightly too much on my last night in Banff (it was $2 spirit night), made the epic journey back to the US. Going through customs I was sweating and pale, trying to prevent myself from being sick. As a result it was no surprise that I encountered some 'special attention', luckily not of the rubber glove variety. Mostly involved being asked repetitively if I had been arrested, where I was staying in the USA, if I had an ongoing ticket, where I worked in NZ (location and employer) etc. Apparently Houston has been going...

Chris's rant fest

Mar 25, 2005 - The Space Center

It is warm and raining slightly this morning, with a bit of mist on the water. Next door, the kids are outside eating pancakes, without regard to the rain. The Space Center at Houston is my destination today. It's big, and on this Good Friday, overcrowded with those beings I mentioned yesterday. A fun place for kids, with all sorts of things to climb on, over, and through. I look at some exhibits, take one of the tram tour, which requires about a 45-minute wait for a one hour tour, much of that consisting of logistics—getting on the tram,...

Jan 26, 2005 - Stopover in Houston - nice airport!

Unfortunately I was flying Continental (I had a credit I needed to use), which meant I had to stop at one of their hubs. I wasn't that upset, however, because I got to layover in Houston, and see their brand new terminal. It's pretty cool design with a countless amount of TV monitors wraped around it. Fortunately, my gate was near one of Continental's President's Club lounges. I found a seat near the entrance, and picked up a free wireless signal on my laptop. Yeah baby! Continental Airlines, tel: 800-525-0280

Jan 12, 2005 - arriving home at last

Arriving home at last: I arrived home on the 8th. After Linda picked me up from the bus in Houston I spent the night at her place and filled her in on some of the details. We had a gourmet dinner at Long John Silvers. I had shrimp, cold slaw, corn on cob and a frozen A&W root beer. The next morning she drove me home. I unpacked my stuff and showed her all the goodies I bought. I was glad all my treasures came through without any broken parts. I also took pictures of my treasure trove. I didn't include pictures of the T-shirts or outfits or...

Two months in Mexico

Dec 6, 2004 - Houston, Texas (Happy Birthday Myra!)

We woke Sunday to a rainy day and had to pack up under umbrellas. As Doug connected the bikes to the back of the cruiser he was getting soaked! We saw on the weather channel that a big storm was headed to the area...time to move on in a hurry! We drove to Houston, Texas under cloudy skies and hit some pretty heavy rainstorms. Doug slowed down the speed and we just took it easy. The RV park was very nice and we pulled in just about dusk. But the major drawback to this park was the amount of mosquitoes! If we opened the door to go in or out...

Nov 13, 2004 - Houston

Hi all Well Houston was a bit of a let down as it seems it is not geared for tourists but is more of a business centre. The Gray line tour company which we always use was a one man show but the bus was in the chop shop. We booked our hotel near six flags amusement park but that was closed for winter. So a bit of an anti-climax - and Houston is the 4th biggest city in the US!! Nonetheless, we were within walking distance of Reliant Stadium (home of the Houston Texans) where the 2004 Superbowl took place so we went on a tour of the stadium...

This week end I attended our Gilbreath family reunion in Houston, hosted by second-cousin, Donna Reynolds. She has a large house and a three-car garage that has been converted into a game room. She also has a large swimming pool that takes up nearly the entire back yard!
