In June, despite the ongoing pandemic, the wandering spirit or the adventurous traveling bones got the better of me. I decided to take my Subaru Crosstrek for a road trip. I set off to the beautiful South Padre Island. It is just a 6-hour drive from Houston.

The ocean environment and sand dunes of the island are absolutely amazing.
Not only my Crosstrek drives nicely on the beach, but it also looks cool and photogenic.

The South Padre beach and sand dunes are mesmerizing each time I visit.

However, my real focus changed and I decided to visit SpaceX Boca Chica, Elon Musk’s new base for the Starship near the US-Mexico border.

Although the trip was brief, I was marveled by the various projects that are expanding the progress of space travel, exploration, and technology. We continued on to the beach and decided to drive down the coast in our Subaru. There was an interesting text message on my phone. It said, “Welcome to Mexico”. Seeing the Rio Grande River in front of us, we decided we should stop driving south and turned the car around and headed back toward Boca Chica.

This June trip got me back to the American phenomenon called road trip. I will write more about my Subaru adventures.
