LeeFL's Summer Roadtrip

I promised months ago, when i posted about our original tentative route for this roadtrip, that i would post photos, so here we go: -

After 11 hours and 633 miles we arrived at our first stop in rainy Mississippi. Nice site tho, overlooking the lake at Paul B Johnson State Park, near Hattiesburg

Nice site. 11 hours though...don't know if I could pull that off. Like to keep my days under 7 hours.

Got a 10.5 drive to Sunset Texas on Monday, then a 10 hour drive to Albuquerque on Tuesday.
We did toy with the idea of moving on to Texas tomorrow, since it's so wet here, and forecast to stay rainy tomorrow, but we'll probably stick with the original schedule.

Safe travels to you and yours. You're really putting on the miles per day. Do you plan to keep up that pace throughout your trip?

Our traveling days range anywhere between 3 and 11 hours, but with a lot around 9 hours. Just wanting to make the most of the destinations ��

So, we've arrived in Sunset, Texas, after a fairly stressful day of traveling.

Some lessons learnt today: -

Jackson, Mississippi has the worst roads I've experienced anywhere in the world ... and I've traveled a lot.

I20 through Louisiana sucks too. The ridges on the road kill fuel economy.

Dallas/Fort Worth traffic and road works can kiss my shiny metal ass.

Never trust GPS. It took us through some neighborhood in Fort Worth to avoid traffic between two highways, and there was road work and we ended up having to drive along a road with oncoming traffic and squished against the side of the road with trees scuffing against the side of the camper ... anyone have good suggestions for getting rid of scratches on the camper ?

Crap. Sorry to hear the not so good news. But hey you made it safely. That's the important thing. Maybe you can buff the scratches out?

Yeah, hoping i can get the scratches out by waxing and buffing after trip,. Certainly won't have time while on trip.
As you say, at least we got here safe, despite the best efforts of some maniac drivers around fort worth. Had to brake hard and swerve to avoid the guy in front of me who locked his wheels trying to avoid the guy in front of him who suddenly slammed on the brakes and then cut across 3 lanes to take an exit.
Thankfully i have pretty quick reactions, and now have brakes that actually work ��
