From my previous ramblings, one might surmise I travel a bit. Not as much as others in the company, but it does keep me on the road a number of days. When traveling, I try to watch what I eat. Too much fast food, too many hotel breakfasts, too many company lunches, I am stuffed by the time I head home. I actually run more on the road in the mornings as a pennance to my overindulgence. I attempt to maintain some sort of discipline, but it is hard to turn down some really exotic offerings. I have eaten a variety of food and try to sample local foods/restaurants whenever possible.
That said, I do venture into some interesting venues. While in College Station for the game, we were planning on cooking dogs & burgers out at the trailers, but, honestly, it was too dad blamed hot & windy. So we jumped in the land barge and headed 10 miles west of town to the small country town of Snook, Texas. Not a lot to see in Snook, but they do have a great sausage store (Slovacek) and country restaurant that has some unique specialties. Got to try some really "healthy food" I have never had before. Their trademark specialty? How about: Chicken Fried Bacon.

BTW - I am currently camped out in Austin right next to all the fire activity. Not close (30 miles east of here), but it is close enough to see the smoke & haze. Lots of local coverage shows the fires.
