Day 4 at Bayou Segnette

Friday February 29...9:30am

Had another quiet night, but the construction noise started sometime between 7am - 7:30am. It was cloudy and windy out, but when I went to take Whiskey for a walk later in the morning, it was actually warmer than I thought it would be. I had my jacket on, but ended up having to take it off.

Third day at Bayou Segnette Park

Thursday February 28...10:25pm

Well Kevin's morning didn't start off the way he had planned. He got up at 4am, had his coffee and a quick bowl of cereal and was ready and waiting for the taxi to arrive, which he had booked in advance yesterday, making sure

New Orleans (day 2)

Wednesday February 27...9:00pm

Very peaceful here at Bayou Segnette State Park. Considering we're pretty close to New Orleans, we didn't hear a thing last night. And I don't think it got quite as cold as it was supposed to, but we still put the little electric heater on as soon as we got up this morning.

New Orleans, Louisiana

Tuesday February 26...10:15pm

No problems at the Walmart last night. We had a bit of rain overnight, but it was still 21C inside the motorhome when we woke up this morning, so it didn't cool off much. That could change though...they are calling for a cold spell for tonight.

New Iberia, Louisiana

Monday February 25...9:45pm

Left the casino at around 8am and went and bought some gas. $3.059 a gallon, so it's still not bad around here. I figure that's equal to about 81 cents per litre. A little more expensive than Mexico, but a whole lot cheaper than

Vinton, Louisiana

Sunday February 24… 11:00pm

Had a great sleep at Walmart. One of the quietest Walmart’s we’ve ever parked at. You’d never have known it was open 24 hours a day. But we got up early anyhow and drove towards the port area of Galveston to go for a

Galveston, Texas

Saturday February 23…10:30pm

No problem with the tide this morning…water was still well away from Sherman. We got on the road right away and made it to Galveston about 10am. The Walmart here is right on the main drag which is called Seawall Blvd. There are signs saying there’s a city ordinance preventing you from

Bryan Beach, Texas

Friday February 22…9:30pm

Woke up to a cloudy windy morning. Used the free internet from the RV park across the road and contacted the Formosa Plastics Co. They have a huge plant across the causeway in the town of Point Comfort. We had read that they do free factory tours, so decided this was something to do. Made our appointment for 1:30pm.

Magnolia Beach, Texas

Thursday February 21…10:00pm

Got up early and moved right away to be able to use the internet. Booked Lindsey and Justins flight to visit us in Florida March 8-17. Not easy to get good prices during March break, so we ended up using a combination of Air

Victoria, Texas

Wednesday February 20…10:00pm

Woke up this morning to the sound of a few raindrops on the roof. I haven’t seen any precipitation since December 4th…about 10 weeks.

Beeville, Texas

Tuesday February 19…10:00pm

Although we both slept well last night, we both woke up early this morning. There was quite a bit of truck traffic around the Walmart we were parked at in Laredo, Texas but most of it was other truckers who were sleeping. Not

Laredo, Texas!

Monday February 18…9:15pm

Set the alarm for 6am this morning. We wanted to get through the town of Garcia well before morning rush hour traffic started, so got up early and had our coffee and tea while on the road. Drove around Monterrey and then

Garcia Caverns

Sunday February 17…8:30pm

Up around 7am this morning and got Sherman ready for the road again. Used the electricity to do a quick vaccuum, and emptied the holding tanks and filled the fresh water. We’re happy campers again.

Saltillo (day 2)

Saturday February 16… 11:00pm

All our neighbours disappeared early this morning, so never got a chance to speak with them. License plates were from Quebec though. We didn’t get up until almost 8:00am, and by then they were packed and leaving. We relaxed

Friday February 15…11:40pm

Woke up this morning feeling great! Stomach better, and slept like a baby. Well, except for the truckers coming and going. But even they were not bad considering it was a busy truck stop and it was open 24 hours. Anyhow, bottom line is that I feel fine!
