I had great fun today. After we landed in Houston we hired a car. I've not driven in the states for about six years and the free way was nice easy, wide and with a speed limit of 50mph (about 80km/h) just about manageable.
(But why have multiple highway designations, why name exits on the distance from the start of the road and why only sign the exit at the exit).
The trip into town was made more exciting by the opportunity to try a couple of pieces to camera as we drove in. We'll try to put together a short video about biofuels and traveling while we're here. We'll fit it in with the others we'll be making about the NPRA meeting in San Antonio over the week end. Thinking about the road took my mind off the camera... still it is interesting to see the size of vehicles here and the lack of vehicular occupancy. Three of us and our baggage wedged into our Pontiac seemed quite cramped in comparison.
Tomorrow we start our NPRA filming with a visit to FuelQuest a firm that makes software designed to help ethanol producers integrate their logistics with mainstream fuel suppliers amongst other things.
