As luck would have it, we made it to Wichita Falls, Texas, for New Year's Eve, not realizing that we were in the Bible Belt and that it was a dry county. We checked into a Motel 6 and made some inquiries. There were a couple of social clubs where you had to pay a membership to get in. Also, they were bottle clubs where you provided your own liquor. We never found a liquor store, and the admission to these clubs was high.
We ended up back in the beautiful motel watching our paid TV. It took quarters to turn on the television. We ended up falling asleep before midnight!
