2013 Day 18 - Weatherford (TX) to Dallas (TX)

Our last full-day on American soil, and I felt it fitting to enjoy my last McDonald's meal in the same place as I ate my first during this chase, at the aptly-named 'Weatherford' (TX). En-route to Dallas (TX) we decided to double-back on ourselves and visit Lake Mineral Wells State Park. It was a nice enough place, we enjoyed another 3-hour walk although the walking paths appeared to be old river beds - very spongy, and flooded in places. Needless to say it ruined a pair of my shoes ha!

Non-severe thunderstorms were beginning to form yet again nearby, so we nipped back into the car and drove the rest of the journey to our pre-booked hotel outside DFW airport. In the evening we visited the 55,000 seater Cowboy's stadium in Arlington (TX) to watch Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Florida Georgia Line live on stage - great fun, and a really good atmosphere. The 90min drive back (the bulk of it spent getting out of Arlington (TX)) wasn't such fun!

What a great way to end what has been an epic trip...
