    Not sure where you went. We did see a couple BNSF running with stacked and auto racks.

    South was a half right choice. We seen some areas where one of BNSF predecessor ran.

    A predecessor, such as perhaps the Frisco? Maybe in Missouri?

    The Rock Island now under Union Pacific control but once controlled by the Southern Pacific, with traffic rights exercised by the BNSF.

    Kansas City Missouri?

    To day's drive took us through some open areas of rock and scrub with only about one road going where we wanted.

    Sounds like you are out in the vicinity of Oklahoma/Kansas.

    Then. going one state west, we would have New Mexico. THAT state has a boatload of scrub and rock, especially along I40 west of Albuquerque.

    Spent the day ridings on a city tour bus. Sure glad to let some one else drive up and down the narrow busy streets. Even seen some big ships proud of them men today as always.

    Big ships??

    My thought currently is, New Orleans, LA.
    Around the area of Camp Leroy Johnson.

    Unless I'm too far in the wrong direction!!

    Big ships? The direction you've been heading, gotta be west coast. Maybe big ships, such as container haulers? Long Beach, CA?

    Dole Bananas - Westlake Village, CA?
    Near Thousand Oaks, CA?

    Another thought was Aquarium of the Pacific, in Long Beach, CA.
    Plenty of big ships around there, at Terminal Island.
    Just a wild guess though.
