I will always associate fall with cross-texas trips to our deer lease. And thanks to a chain of pit-stops across the state called Buc-ee’s (pronounced: Bucky’s), bathroom breaks are a whole lot nicer. Their motto is “bathrooms so clean your mother would be proud” — or something like that. All I know is that the bathrooms really are impeccable and the convenient store is crazy efficient. They have designed everything in their store to get you in and out quickly — self checkouts and all. But if you choose to stretch your legs and peruse their merchandise, you will be offered an assortment of proprietary goods and foods. Meats, cheeses, and sweets (um — hello pecan pie pieces!) are plentiful, but my favorite has to be the beaver nuggets. As wretched as it sounds, it’s a delicious cross between a cracker-jack and a rice crispy. The perfect, addictive road-trip snack!
