Much of the day was spent driving to New Braunfels (between Austin and San Antonio). Like all the major highways we have spent time on it was busy most of the way. The google lady diverted us off the highway into roadworks, but mostly it was incident free.
Lunch was my choice and I chose well, Iron Works BBQ in Austin, a great recommendation from Ben at work. The outside of the place caused some concern from the wife and children, but the ribs, chicken and brisket quickly smoothed their concerns. Sensational!
