Harry and Judy's RV Trip
28th Jul 2015 - Summer 2015
Day 58-July 28, 2015-Louisiana, Mississippi, Louisiana

Day 58-July 28, 2015-Louisiana, Mississippi, Louisiana

Drove 214 miles in 7 hours.  Temp started at 93 at 9AM and got to 104. It’s not just humid, it’s dripping!

Louisiana has the worst roads in the country, even the interstates are like washboards.  We’re convinced the reason the bearings broke in the wheel was because of the horrible roads.  Things in the RV that never moved even going over the Rockies end up on the floor from after traveling on these roads.

Got on I-20 for a few miles, then to US 425 south to Vidalia, LA where we went over the Mississippi River into Natchez, MS for about an hour then went back into Louisiana.  Stopped at a Walmart parking lot for lunch then continued south on US61, past quite a few Antebellum plantations to Baton Rouge, where we picked up I-12.  Continued listening to the book on tape, it’s getting good now. We wanted to stop at a tire repair store and get the other bearings looked at on the RV but traffic was nuts and we couldn’t find a place.  Stopped at a Pep Boys, they sent us back the way we came to another place.  I called and they were just about to close.  So we continued to the campground, a KOA in Denham Springs.  They wanted to charge over $61.00 even with our discount so we left, drove 12 miles east to Livingston, LA where we found a great little campground less than a mile off the interstate on a lake with big, level pull through sites-$17.50, big difference!  I almost went to the pool but it’s too hot go outside.

We were going to go into Baton Rouge tomorrow and see what’s there (we know there’s three casinos) but they’re in the middle of the city, it’s way too hot to go into the city and we’re in “get home" mode.
