We were up pretty early today to begin packing for the move down to Rayford Crossing. We did pretty well and pulled out, right on schedule, at 9:30. We had to say goodbye to our friends for another winter season, but I know that we'll see some of them again soon.
We made very good time through Dallas and made our one and only rest stop at the rest area near Corsicana TX. It was a nice long stop and I capped several Munzees and we both ate our sandwiches.
Rested up, we continued to make good time to Spring. Traffic started picking up around Conroe and I noticed a lot of fast drivers, darting from lane to lane, typical of the Houston area drivers. When we reached the Woodlands, we noticed that south bound traffic was on the feeder road, not the freeway. We finally reached the big construction area at FM 242, where a contractor has diverted traffic to the feeder to work on a traffic flyover on the south bound side. We were not affected, but I listened to some mad truckers that had been sitting for an hour or so and not moving. Glad it was them and not us...
Remember all the problems with the Satellite dish? Keep in mind that it worked fine in Oklahoma and after a couple of small location changes here, it worked fine again. Can't figure that crazy thing out, but it's working, and that's all that counts.
Almost as soon as we were set up, friends started coming by. We had visits from Pete and Jean and Warren and Judy, all welcoming us back. We had made arrangements to meet Ted and Donna at the Sweet Tomato restaurant, one of my favorites in the area. After a great meal we sat and chatted with them for over an hour before returning back home. Should be a good couple of days.
