Houston -- Minute Maid Ballpark Tour

Friday, February 23, 2007

overcast 0 °F

We get up early and actually leave the campground by 8am, the earliest exit so far. Jere wants to get to Houson for the 2pm tour of the Astros ballpark since it's the last tour til Monday. We park the RV at the Houston KOA and head into town.

The tour guide was excellent and helped make it an interesting tour. The ballpark has their American flagpole in the back of centerfield, so a player can actually hit an incredibly long home-run ball, but if it hits the flagpole (which is technically part of the ballfield) and bounces back on the field, it's a fair ball. Very strange. IMG_5613.jpg


We're all tired and hungry so we head back to the RV for an early dinner and homework and laundry duty.

Interesting sidenote: I was in the laundry and talking to a guy and he says, " You talk funny. You're not from around here, are you?" I didn't have a Texan accent.

I am worried about the weather in Texas, we have been watching the weather channel, we have a snow storm coming and they are talking about some nasty weather in texas, hope this is not where you are. Haven't heard anything about your back, so hopefully that is healed! Well we will be anxiously awaiting your next update. Please be safe and tell Jere and Joe the Eckerts send their best!
