We left New Orleans area on Thursday. We spent last night in Baytown, TX in an RV Spot at a Cracker Barrell Restaurant. After having dinner there, we asked the manager if we could stay in their lot overnight. It was very well lit and had security cameras. We slept good until about 5am, when their dumpsters were then unloaded. We couldn't get back to sleep, so we decided to get up and stopped for breakfast at one of Al's new favorites, Waffle-House. It seemed good to get an early start. as we knew Houston would be really bad at rush hour. It was worse than anticipated because of heavy rain, plus the freeway was closed due to an accident so we were forced onto another route. Luckily we had the GPS, which I don't use all the time, because Al doesn't like that Lady. He says she overexplains everything, and he doesn't like her voice. We got the idea to nickname her from some friends of ours. He decided to name her May B. because she may be right or she may be wrong. Sometimes you need to have a sense of humor, especially when traveling. Luckily, today she was right-on, and she took us right where we needed to go and back onto Route 10. Thanks, May!
It is slightly more stressful when you are pulling that 38' beast down the highway, and no one wants you in front of them. At one point we were almost hit by an eighteen-wheeler. Another truck driver cut him off and he started into our lane, and we had no where to go. Luckily, he acted quickly and an accident was avoided, whew! Finally, around 8am after going through the worst driving conditions, we stopped in a Supermarket parking lot to take a rest. We both decided a nap was in order and we slept for over an hour. That is one big advantage of taking our house with us!
We found a nice RV park owned by the city of Kerrville. They charge reasonable rates, and have pull through sites with all utilities. We are planning on staying here until Sunday and will then head to San Angelo, TX to visit my son, Doug and his family. We plan to be there until after Christmas. It will be really nice seeing them as it's been a long time. I'm sure the kids have gotten taller since we last saw them! I can't wait!!!
