Where in the hell am I?

After a couple of delays, we’re back for another round of survey in the Nacogdoches area. It’s going to be somewhere between 4-8 days, depending on access and (maybe) weather. It’s been pouring the last couple of days and a lot of the rivers and creeks were swollen on the drive up. The rain is supposed to stop tonight, but the runoff will take a couple of days to work its way downstream. And the swampy floodplains will be even worse.

Oddly, I won’t actually be working on this project tomorrow. I’m heading to Milam, which is almost in Louisiana, and meeting up with someone from our Houston office to help survey a half-mile area. Judging by the entry on the Handbook of Texas Online, there could be some really interesting archaeology there.

We switched hotels, and it was a significant upgrade. The rooms are almost like small suites, with a separate seating and desk area. They also have a refrigerator and microwave, which means that I can eat more healthy. I also found that Kroger carries a decent selection of Amys frozen dinners. This is very good because I decided I wanted to see if I could eat vegetarian this week, and I wasn’t looking forward to a bunch of cheesy pasta dishes and Subway veggie delite subs. Might talk more about this all later. Blame it in part on Michael Pollan (note I linked to Bookpeople, Austin’s big independent bookstore and the softball team I’ll be playing for) and all the Pilgrims Pride chicken farms in the area.
