We got up about 6 AM to begin packing up to leave for Longview TX, the first leg of the journey to Breaux Bridge Louisiana and the Louisiana HOC Chapter rally. It was dark and cold and I didn't want to go out, but when the sun finally came up around 7:30, I struggled out and began working. We made good time and actually pulled out about 8:30, right on time. We traveled with old friend Bobcat and Mike and Peg. With light traffic, we made very good time down the highway until we decided to make a pit stop at an Allsup convenience store in Decatur where Stella and I had stopped on our way up here. I didn't notice that there was no crossover on the divided highway, so we rolled on, looking for another place to stop. We drove a few miles out of town and found another station with a large parking lot, suitable to us pulling trailers. We had gotten separated on the road, and only the Bobcat stopped with us. Mike and Peg saw us but didn't have a chance to take the exit to stop also, so we got our sandwiches and coffee and continued on.
We traveled on with Bob until the road split and I misread the sign, and we ended up on the wrong road. Bob took the right road, so he was ahead of us. We just took a scenic route, which I am good at finding!
We all met back up at a rest stop but again, we were delayed in leaving. It was not really big deal, but we were about 5 minutes behind and we didn't get caught up until we arrived at the RV park.
It was a good day to travel with blue skies and warm temperatures later in the morning. With the exception of the little boo-boo in Ft. Worth it was an uneventful trip. We should have a more exciting drive tomorrow with all the flooding in Louisiana.
