MEMORIES OF OUR VACATION

Things are rolling along, right on track for the sale of our house. We thank God for that. As far as everything else, it is the same ole,same ole. We work, we come home to the coach for dinner, some tv and before you know it, bedtime.

As I mentioned in my previous post, we had a two week vacation that began on the 3rd of November. We began our trip early on that Saturday morning, which in retrospect turned out to not be the best idea. There was a misty fog along I20 that morning that really limited visibility.  The pace was slow from Shreveport, Louisiana, all the way to Vicksburg, Mississippi. we traveled a little over 8 hours that day, making up some time when the fog lifted.

We crossed the Georgia state line and into the eastern time zone. We thought about changing our clocks an hour ahead for ET, but upon further thought we decided to leave them alone since daylight savings time began at 2AM Sunday morning anyway!

We pulled into a Flying J to spend the night. Cheryl wanted to search for a good place for dinner, so drove the car down the road and per chance found a "mom and pops" RV park less than two miles from the truck stop. I found the owner and the price was $20.00 for one night, full hook ups! Needless to say we moved from the truck stop to the RV park!

After a good dinner at the RVers cafe, better known as Cracker Barrel and a good quiet nights sleep; we got a not so early start on the next leg of our journey. 

I will continue the trip in the next post, since it is time to stop the daydreaming and head to the office. I pray the house sells with no problems, our finances will be sufficient and my days left for heading to the office are few. Until next time........

You know we will be on the road in February next year. We are so excited to be at this point in time. We will be heading to Galveston for a month. March is Kris's birthday and he wants to go to NASA. He is a Space fanatic and loves all subjects in Science. We wish the best for you guys and if we don't speak again have a Merry Christmas.
