Dec 27, 2018 - Moving On

Yesterday we got moving early (for us) and continued West on I-10. The weather forecast for tonight and tomorrow isn't good, calling for possible severe storms. We're going to push on across Louisiana to Lake Charles. It was a quiet, peaceful ride although Marley was acting like every bump in the road was thunder. Sadly Louisiana highways have plenty of bumps. I don't know what they'd be like if they had freezing like up North. It's Thursday now. We were awakened about 3:30 by the alarm on the weather radio announcing a Tornado Watch. The...

Jan 10, 2015 - Creole Nature Trail

Spent the day following the Creole Nature Trail thru Southern Louisiana.Saw a lot of different countryside than we are used to. Happened upon a local Marde Gras parade. I didn't realize the whole state of Louisiana celebrated--I thought it was just in New Orleans. They start early and the beads were really flying and the beer flowing !! Ended the day at the Golden Nugget Casino and made our contribution to the state of Louisiana...

Jan 9, 2015 - Louisiana's Outback

Drove a good part of the day today.Left Gulf Shores and went thru Mississippi. Stopped briefly in Biloxi at the lighthouse and drove along the gulf coast where hurricane Katrina had caused so much destruction. A lot is still not rebuilt along the shore. Crossed the Mississippi river and stopped for the night about 20 miles from the Texas border. Tomorrow plan on taking the Creole Nature Trail. Have been seeing lots of decorations already for Mardi gras all across the southern states. They really get excited and it's not till Febuary!!

Apr 6, 2014 - First Stop on way to Florida

Hidden Ponds RV park - concrete sites, blazing fast internet and stocked fish ponds. Nice place to spend the night for $25 - quite the bargain. I-10 is a rough road. The bridges are the worst. I am fighting a kidney infection and I will tell you that my back hurt almost the whole day. The dogs were angels - they slept most of the day in the back seat. Houston traffic was not bad, since it was Sunday. It rained the whole day!!! When we got to the park every surface in the RV was covered in condensation. Door handles, wood tables,...

Apr 23, 2013 - A relic of the past

Sulphur, LA, We started today with a tour aboard the M/V Sam Houston for a 90-minute round-trip cruise along the Houston Ship Channel. We saw the largest refinery in the nation operating, scrap being loaded onto barges, a grain elevator dumping grain into a ship, container ships, HUGE ships everywhere, tug boats, various flags (many from Greece or Cyprus), ship workers waving from high up in their ships, a huge pile of gypsum, tires lined up against docking areas, etc.; most of which is not a pretty sight (or smell). We also saw the site...

Remember the Alamo

Dec 31, 2012 - Sulphur, LA

Sulphur, Louisiana! Despite the name it appears to be a nice spot and the RV park is very nice, although it is in the middle of no where. This is another one night stay, and I am finding one night stays to be very tiring because of driving every day plus all the rest of the chores in moving. I'll be glad when we can spend a few days in one place.

Mar 4, 2012 - Louisiana Saturday Night

The song is pronounced Luzianna Saturday Night but when I looked it up it is spelled as the state. The locals pronounce the state differently than the rest of us. We lazed around a lot today but really hit it hard late. We went to visit Calvin and Carolyn a mile or so away. As we chatted, Carolyn brought out strawberry shortcake then Calvin sent us off with a bit of boudan a Cajun meat sausage. Then we headed to a full Cajun restaurant for dinner. The craw-fish etouffee was excellent. The two girls fixed the wardrobe doors which house...

Mar 3, 2012 - Get me my Sulphur pills

We are back in Sulphur Louisiana at Aunt Carolyn's house but Aunt Carolyn isn't here. She and Gordon are in Florida on their own trip. We were here very early in our adventure. Carolyn's daughter Marcy came to get out of the snow and asked us to come see her on our way through. We last saw Marcy when we were in her home town of Cheyenne WY. We left our beautiful campsite in Texas and took the scenic route, actually the long cut. It was a nice ride and much better than the interstate. We stopped in Port Arthur for lunch and I got a much...

Apr 15, 2011 - Visitin' and visitors

This was a laid back day not much going on. Gordon and Carolyn are buying a new SUV and Gordon got 2 SUVs for the day to try out. We went to visit their friend Carolyn and Calvin a few miles away and just got to visit with Carolyn since Calvin was helping his son constucting a home. Later that evening Carolyn and Calvin came over and the 6 of us had a very nice time. We are all campers and it was interesting swapping stories on the foibles and triumphs, fuel economy and low bridges. It was a relaxing and enjoyable day unfortunitely the...

Apr 14, 2011 - Lazy Day

We are still here with Aunt Carolyn and Gordon. Didn't do much yesterday. Carolyn and Shirley went antiquing after we had a nice lunch at Cracker Barrel. Gordon and I went grocery shopping for Shirley and me, we went multiple places to try and get valve extenders for the inside wheels on the big honkin' dually. Finally I decided to have the Ford dealer do it when I get the oil changed next week. I can put my own air in the tires because we have an on board air compressor that fills the air shocks. While we were trying to "do it ourselves"...

Apr 13, 2011 - Aunt Carolyn

We drove the back roads (speed limits up to 65 mph even tho we go 55) great way to see the country, to Sulphur, La to visit Aunt Carolyn. What a neat story. She is married to Gordon. They both had lost their spouses and reunited having grown up together in the same grade in a small town in Western NY State. Nice to see how things work out. Not enough time or space to tell all the Aunt Carolyn stories (we have known her for 25 years) but she is INTEGRAL in the lives of Shirley, me, Darci and Collins. When I was transferred from Buffalo to...

Mar 17, 2011 - Sulphur, LA

We arrived in Sulphur today. It was a tiring drive for Brad. He did all the driving today. We were not on a highway from College Station down to Houston and then once we got on Rte. 10 in Houston, there were very few rest areas for us to change drivers. It was good to finally get out of Texas. It's about 890 miles across Texas on I-10 and we detoured up into the Hill Country. We have found a wonderful RV Park here, A-1 Rv Park & Motel. The grass is green, there is a pond in the middle. We are on a cement pad with a patio. There are full...
