The Midpoint Cafe in Adrian, Texas

The Midpoint Cafe in Adrian, Texas is located exactly 1,139 miles from the
 start of Route 66 in Chicago and the end in Santa Monica, California. 

The Trolls, Monet, Lil Dude, & Earth (left to right) in the Midpoint Cafe
chillin' while waiting for the food to be served.
Burger & chips were pretty darn good. If in the area again, Lil Dude
would come back.

The waitress was friendly and efficient & she liked Lil Dude!

In one of those strange, fortuitous "on the road" happenings, as the
Trolls were leaving, a cute, very friendly young lady with a wonderful
smile and crazy blue hair came in with her male companion. They were
hiking along Route 66 and she and Lil Dude struck up an immediate
kinship. Lil Dude still smiles when he thinks of this! May you have
fair travels and a happy life ahead of you our blue haired friend!

On The Trail of Bonnie & Clyde

Gibsland, Louisiana - home of the Bonnie & Clyde Museum. The ambush
site is just a few miles outside here.

Visiting the Bonnie & Clyde Ambush Museum in Gibsland. It is ran by
L.J. "Boots" Hinton, the son of one of the posse members who ambushed
Bonnie & Clyde.
The ambush site where Bonnie & Clyde met
their end.

The marker has to be replaced occasionally because vandals come by
and shoot it so much.. It is still a very rural area here.
