Not much to see in Texarkana, so we took the bypass around the city. Headed for the town of Atlanta to use internet and buy some beer and wine before we got into Atlanta State Park.
One thing we notice right away about Texas is the speed limits. Standard two lane roads can be as high as 70mph (113 km/h) speed limit, and almost all 4 lane roads are that way.
This is NOT the interstate highway and speed limit was 70/mph
Made it to the Walmart, and bought some more gas. Paid $2.679/gal ($0.71 a litre). I thought it was going to be a little cheaper in Texas, but maybe that's further south. Just checked http://www.texasgasprices.com/ and it looks to be around $2.559 south of here. Dallas area is expensive, but we won't need any there.
Most Wal-Marts in the U.S. sell beer and wine...excpet the one in Atlanta, Texas. Must be a county thing because the girl in the gas bar said we would have to go back about 10 miles to get any beer or wine. Oh well, no beer or wine tonight!
Atlanta State Park is pretty nice. $12 for water and electric, or $10 for a tenting site. There was nobody in the office, so we just took a $12 site for the night. There is some confusion on the entrance fees though. This park said it was $2 per person "day use fee" as well, but the website said it was just the $12 for the camping. We put $12 in the envelope, and didn't hear back from anyone, so that's all we paid.
Took the bikes for a ride around the park.
And then went for a walk on one of the hiking trails by the lake.
Slept great, and left early this morning. Now in Mount Pleasant where we'll look for a laundry...and a place that sells beer and wine!
