On the Road to Texas

At 7:30 am we backed the motorhome out of the driveway in Maryland, hooked up the car behind us and began out trip to Texas. Our first night is being spent South of Bristol, Tn. after traveling 409 miles. Gas prices have been lower than Maryland's, but they are still around $2.00 per gallon. We have Wi-Fi at this campground so, We decided to up-date the blog, in case anyone else reads it.

So far we've discovered I left a battery and charger behind for my new digital camera and a gift certificate for Perkins'. If that's all, we didn't do a bad job of packing. If anything, we over pack.

We have been keeping an eye on the weather forecasts for tonight and tomorrow. It looks like we are on the line for rain or snow. We are hoping for rain. We are looking to make it to La. tomorrow if the weather cooperates.

Our plans are to go down to the Rio Grand Valley and chill out for several months. We are looking at staying in the Mission area where we can go birding, hiking and day trips to Mexico and the other parts of the RGV.
