We are planning on hitting the road again and taking a short trip to Houston. This used to be a real bear of a drive, but now that they’ve increased the speed limit on I-45, it’s possible to make the trip in 3 and 1/2 hours. It’s exactly 250 miles from our house to my parents house on the northwest side of Houston, so we will have to average close to 70 mph to get there in that time, but as almost all of that mileage is on the highway, we should be able to do it, if we don’t have to stop. I know it’s possible because I did the drive myself a few weeks ago. This time, we’ll see if the kids cooperate.
