Monday March 7, 2016-Moving day-Palms RV Park to Texn RV Ranch, Mansfield TX

Yesterday, Sunday, we didn't do too much of anything but get things cleaned up and ready to go tomorrow. We did meet Kim and the boys at Kelly's restaurant in La Marque for breakfast. As usual, it was delicious and we all ate way too much! We topped off the fuel and came back home to finish up our chores. 

I didn't sleep well and stayed up until well after midnight, working on the Branson rally preparations. I finally went to sleep but woke a couple of times during the night.

This morning we were up at 6:30 but it was chilly again and it was after 7 before we started to work. We made good progress and pulled out about 9:30, q little later than we had wanted to but we made very good time through Houston and to the Ron Hoover dealership to have the new tires on the trailer filled with nitrogen. I am sold on this procedure and will keep nitro in all my trailer tires from now on.

They were waiting for us to arrive and immediately got started and were actually finished in about 30 minutes. Then, on top of that, there was no charge for performing this service! Wow!

We were soon back on the road and continued to make excellent time along the Gulf Frwy. We made our first stop at the Buccee's store in Madisonville where we ate our lunch and took a nice long stop. We continued on our drive but when I started to get drowsy, I pulled into a state rest area to walk around for a few minutes to clear my head. It worked, and we were soon back on the road.

It rained on us a couple of times but it was a very light rain. It held off until we arrived at the Texan RV Ranch for the night. After getting everything hooked up, I took Tramp to the doggie park to get some exercise in for him and we had just barely gotten back home when it began to rain. Lucky us!!

Hope I get some good rest tonight!

So long.
