I hitched up this morning, 49 degrees. I had parked at the end of a row next to a small grassy area…..well….while I was hitching up with the car door open the sprinklers came on and guess what happened…..
After hitching up I drove over to the casino and parked. I went in to the Buffalo Grille for the breakfast buffet. It was pretty good and I used my $10 food credit so it cost me $2 for tax and tip.
I left the casino about 10:00am. I stopped for gas and a drink at the travel stop on I-44 that is across the lanes of traffic. There is a McDonald’s on the second floor at one end and a Subway at the other. There was a convenience store on the bottom. I purchased a drink. They only had Med and Large. The Medium was 32 oz. What does that say about America when a 32 oz. drink is labeled as a Medium?
It was a lovely, sunny day for the drive. I will say that 69 South is in very bad condition, it was a rough ride. I went thru Dallas at 4:30. Traffic and highways are unbelievable in Dallas. For thirty minutes I was in city traffic. It started with four lanes on each side then went to five lanes each way and finally six lanes each way. I heard on the radio that Taylor Swift was in town giving a concert downtown tonight and that is why the traffic was so heavy on a Saturday afternoon.
I continued on and stopped in Corsicana TX for the night. I stopped and picked up dinner on the way to the RV park. They have a regional fast food chain here called “Golden Chick”. Well of course I must visit anything with that name. The service was no so good, the chicken was pretty good and the mashed potatoes were terrible. I arrived at the RV park about 6:30pm. It was 79 degrees.
I am at American RV Park in Corsicana tonight. It is pretty basic and not very quiet. I would probably not choose to stay here again. I drove about 400 miles today.
