Made the trip a number of times. I-10 through LA is rough in spots as you go through areas where the highway is new and smooth as glass then back to old sections of the concrete highway that are like riding on o rub board. Batten down loose objects in the TV and trailer.

Where are you staying in the Destin area.

Destin Beach RV in Miramar Beach is our destination. We'll be there 5 or 6 days.

Thanks for the comments ... We'll bolt everything down through Louisina.

Any issues with bridges?

Made that trip from Austin to Destin (well, Topsail in Santa Rosa Beach) last year. No problems, but we were making time and didn't spend a lot of time looking' and see in' along the way. LOVE Austin, though!!

I10 from Lake Charles to Baton Rouge is like riding a wild bronc ... Every 10 feet is an expansion joint that bounces you up and spits you back down.

As a result, there is a lot of debris on the hiway ... When we pulled in for the night, one of the trailer tires was flat ... Three holes ... New tire ... Omni something or other - never heard of it.

I hope the west bound lanes are better but it's highly unlikely.
