Where On The Road Is Gwendolyn?

July 09, 2009 by Bill Strong

...the TeePee Motel & RV Park in Wharton, Texas! When we called yesterday to make reservations, the woman laughed and said, "You don't need a reservation. We've got plenty of spots, just pull on in." You mean Wharton isn't a hot spot? Well, the TeePee Motel should be! Although we are resting our heads in the RV tonight, the concrete teepees are actually pretty cute...in a 1940s retro way. And they got us doing our rendition of a powwow chant and dance -- which was pretty mediocre after 7 hours of driving, but Gwendolyn found it all highly amusing!

Trip stats:

* Mileage this segment: New Orleans, LA to Wharton, TX ---> 407 miles
* Cumulative mileage: 2,753 miles
* Cumulative gallons of diesel gas: 416 gallons
* Average MPG: 6.62 (ugh!)
