Harry and Judy's RV Trip
30th May 2016 - Summer 2016
Day 5-May 30, 2016-To Louisiana

Day 5-May 30, 2016-To Louisiana

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!!!!

We drove 230 miles in 4-1/4 hours.  Hotter and more humid today about 93. We stayed on I-10 the whole day except where I-10 goes south to New Orleans.  I-12 continues west until it merges with I-10 again in Baton Rouge.  Traffic was heavy but OK, a bit of a snag in Baton Rouge.  But the road west of Baton Rouge is like a washboard.  Got to Egan, LA east of Lake Charles about 2:00 and set up.  Small campground, mostly people who live here in RVs.  The owner, Mark, kept thanking us for staying and apologizing because there’s no shade.  It’s right off the interstate and we didn’t unhook because we’re only staying one night and continuing on tomorrow.  Had lunch and pulled out maps and campground directories.  Looks like our original plan to stay in Houston for a few days and then Austin for a few days may be revised because of the weather.  We hear a big storm with lightning, baseball size hail and flooding rain is stalled over most of Texas.  All of Texas.  If we go north to Dallas, south to Corpus Cristi or west to Houston it’s all the same for the next week or so.  Even west Texas which will take us quite a few days to get to.  So we’re still undecided.  I think we’ll go to Houston tomorrow and then take it one day at a time.  I’ll call the campground in Houston tomorrow morning and see if they’re flooded.  When I spoke to them a few days ago they said they had rain that day like they had never seen before.  One thing is for sure, we’re not turning around. The rest of the day we just relaxed, read and watched the cows out the back window.  I’ve posted some old flag pictures because it’s Memorial Day and I’m a “flag waver”. Enjoy.
