Departing the Bay of Campeche, the wellness stepping horde heads west then north-ish on route 145D until connecting to route 180, hugging the Gulf of Mexico on our right through Veracruz, Ozulama and then the state of Tamaulipas before, at mile #805, reaching Brownsville, Texas, back in the USA with one day to spare. Celebrations abound. An amazing trip and a terrific, dedicated group to do it with.
Onward we trek through Texas on US 77 to around the Corpus Christi area, then north/northwest on I-37 to the riverwalk city of San Antonio, some great food to sustain us, then north/northeast on I-35 through the capital in Austin before ending our 1,237 miles trek for the day in Temple, Texas, a stone's throw from Waco.
