Day 3 and 4 on the road

Tuesday, January 5/10 22 degrees at 7 AM
Back on the road, travelling out of the Florida Panhandle through the bottom of Alabama, still on I-10. Passed the port city of Mobile and onto the state of Mississippi for a brief drive through. Still on I-10 into Louisiana. It was another bright sunny day but the daytime high only made it to mid 40's.
After stopping at the Welcome to Louisiana Information Centre on I-10 we picked the Coushatta Casino RV Resort just north of Kinder as our night stop. We set up the trailer and caught the shuttle bus over to the big casino and had dinner there, joined their Advantage member's club but didn't gamble away any $. Interesting to see in this area were all the rice fields and the crawfish fishing.

Wednesday, January 6/10 37 degrees at 9 AM
Slower start today - left campground around 9 AM after filling up the diesel tank - price per gallon has been around $2.70 to $2.80 per gallon and each fill-up costs about $85 to $100 and the truck averages about 9.5 miles per gallon on the interstates. We have been doing about 450 miles each day since we left. Travelled out of Louisiana and into Texas on the I-10 still. We made our way through Houston - 2 million population - 4th largest city in US. and stayed on the interstate to San Antonio. The sunshine clouded over but the temperature stayed mild today and reached a high of 66 degrees.
We got off I-10 at San Antonio and went south on I-37 heading for Corpus Christi. We parked for the night at Mathis in a new RV Park beside an RV store.
May get out the new camera tomorrow and get some shots taken for this blog.
