Two hundred eighty-eight miles is a long way to drive for a plate of barbecue, even if it’s Kansas City style as served up by award winning 18th and Vine. The trip from my driveway (where I park) and John B. Sias parkway (on which one drives) at times felt like the Indy 500, only with huge trucks bullying their way along and dangerously distracted drivers tending to their electronic devices; the short term break at Buc-ee’s provided sufficient comfort and fortification for the balance of the journey.

If you haven’t made the drive on state Highway 287 through Waxahachie in some time, the growth and development will surprise.
