Beginning the long push West!

Posted by on June 10, 2017

We woke up this morning to a stuffy RV- the downside of staying in a Walmart parking lot is no electric or water/sewer, but the upside is no campground fee.  After grabbing a few items inside the walmart, we were off and through Atlanta, then through the Alabama cities of Auburn and Montgomery before passing through the Louisiana cities of Biloxi, Baton Rouge and Lake Charles in the evening.  This was our first time on I-10 and we had really hoped to be able to spend a half day in New Orleans but our delayed start made it impossible.  We will have to make a return trip someday.  Other than the crazy amount of lawyer billboards on I-10, we also noticed billboards for boudin and cracklins.  Cracklins are fried pork skins and boudin is sausage.  Lindsay spent a full 20 minutes telling me about all the different kinds of boudin that one could buy and my mouth was watering.  If we weren’t still way behind schedule, we would have stopped to pick up a sampling.  We continued our push into Texas and realized that we just were not going to make it all the way to our original destination of San Antonio tonight and instead pulled into a very nice campground in eastern Houston around 10:30 pm.  Worn out, we set up and got a good night’s rest.
