I love the gritty mood to your entire road trip. SXSW is a very unique experience that is hard to explain to anyone who hasn't been there.

I also see that you got a picture of me on the way to work:

Much of eastern Oklahoma is forested and wet, and mountainous in the southeastern part (sort of like the mountains in Arkansas and Missouri). Much of eastern Texas is largely pine forest, very wet, and somewhat hilly and very pretty, but not mountainous. The Big Thicket National Preserve northeast of Houston is a nearly inpenetrable wilderness of pine/hardwood forest, alligators, swamps, etc. Eastern Texas and Oklahoma surprise visitors. Those who just come into these two states on interstates skirt much of the eastern/southern landscapes (although I think I-20 and I-30 in northeast Texas hit some of the northern extent of the piney woods in some spots.)

Edit: In looking at Google Earth, it looks like I-40 and I-44 in Oklahoma catch some of the eastern landscapes as well.

There is that one hill, I guess called the Arbuckle Mtns just north of the Texas state line, on I-35 that I photographed from the top of as well. That area is much more dry and plains like, though, than further east towards Arkansas. It's a cool stop, though.

The Arbuckles are way west of where I was talking about, though. What I meant was southeastern OK, which is mountainous and forested, more like parts of Arkansas. Probably not really mountains, but big hills. I've seen photos in the past and it looks very nice.

I haven't actually been through the Arbuckles on I-35, but on Google Earth it appears to be pretty cool like you mentioned.

Did you have time to get out to Lake Travis in the hilly part of the Austin area and go to Hippie Hollow (the nude beach)? With the warm weather it was probably pretty crowded, at least during the weekend.

Yeah, there is a really good bike lane along there, but it narrows along that stretch as the parking takes over a bit. People do give room to bikes though. I ride that stretch frequently. During SXSW bicycles basically took over the streets and cars had to wait their turn.

awesome

Downtown Tulsa looks like some pictures I have seen of Houston/Dallas/Atlanta/etc from the 1970s. In other words, a strange time warp.
