Road Trip day 1: Austin to Hot Springs Hot Springs, AR, Saturday, 16 July 2016 3:09pm

It's a long drive to get out of Texas. We took a fairly scenic route out, until we got to Texarkana, then took the interstate until the turnoff for Hot Springs. That put us back on a lovely country highway into the Ouatcita mountains.

Our hotel is a historic building with lots of early 20th century charm. We had dinner and a "Beer Bath" tasting flight of 18 different beers at a historic converted bathhouse. There were several good ones, but both of us agreed that our favorite was "Pretty Fly For a White Rye".

First wildlife: white tailed deer
