I’ve been long-distance driving so much lately (100 miles each way to school 4x a week / 157 miles to Houston each way for classes), so here’s a few things i’ve noticed…
When driving outside the Nacogdoches area…
you measure driving time by miles (ex. 100 miles = 100 minutes or else). 
watch out for deers, armadillos, squirrels, birds, or raccoons playing traffic.
if you’re lucky, you’ll smell the SKUNK perfume every 30 miles.
pass by a barn & you’ll for sure smell some horse doogee.
you’ll be able to enjoy the sceanary of cows bathing in mud or get to watch them chew their cud.
state troopers have their cowboy hats on most of the time.
a LOT of trees. i mean, a LOT of trees.
you’ll lose signal sometimes so you better know how to change a tire (which I don’t)
if you don’t have your iPod connected, you better hope you like country or christian stations coz maybe you’ll get one or two mainstream music stations.
it’s mighty dark outside coz the only lights you’ll see are from the cars.
you’ll pass by some dink coffee cafes for truck stops & some  animal taxidermy just for your roadkill
& oh hey, don’t forget about the granny on the one lane highway (for each side) going 55mph on 70mph speed limit.
