We woke this morning, intending to get a very early start on moving day but it just wasn't in the cards. Thats okay, we have the time and don't really have to get in a big hurry, even though today is to be a longer driving day than normal.
We got away about 9:30 instead of 8:30 but it worked out okay. I was through with my outside work at 8:30, but Stella told me not to touch anything with the repaired hydraulics since that was the first thing to mess up in our problems. I did as she asked, and everything worked perfectly! No problem, no drama, everything worked exactly like it was supposed to do. We actually made excellent time all day. We breezed through Houston without slowing down, and in fact the first time we were below 60 MPH was when we slowed to take our first rest stop in Huntsville. The state of Texas has improved so many of the rest areas, and all travelers should take advantage of it. The new rest areas also feature free wi-fi hotspots, so if you need to check email or send one, this is a good place to do it.
We pulled into the Winstar Casino RV park a little after 4, and someone forgot to tell Mother Nature that we were coming. It was very hot and the wind was blowing about 40 MPH! It wasn't long before we were all set up and ready to rally!
We went over to the casino for a brief visit to get Stella's gift card enabled. That $10 gift card could make us millionaires this weekend if she plays the slots well, so if I don't continue this blog, you'll know that we were big winners in the casino and are living the high life.
