i headed back over your route---almost

and because of your thread on your hitch….moved me to replace the one i had …that was on my trailer when i bought it….Hensley says it was 18 years old….and after i saw yours….i said not another mile with this one….and so i bought a reconditioned hitch…had it installed by camper clinic in buda , texas ..

and so in trying to figure my route back to the orcas….i am going back from bear lake utah up thru nampa and i wonder where you stayed there…i found a nice looking park in caldwell Id and have stayed at three rivers crossing and bureau dunes in past trips.

I thought Katy texas had long ago been consumed by houston…..

was arrowhead lake dry in wichita falls……

Today we made a short run with Lucy from Katy down to Seabrook, Texas. On the way, we passed through Downtown Houston. We came down here to visit with friends. We got Lucy settled into a campground. We went out for dinner to T-Bone Toms's Steakhouse in Kemah, Texas. This is another place that was featured on the Food Channel's Drive-ins, Diners, and Dives. It was really good. We would definitely would go back.

We visited with our friends a little longer, and made our way back to Lucy to start preparing her for travel. Tomorrow, we will be heading to Santa Rosa Beach. It's about 600 miles, so we will probably spend one more night on the road.

We broke camp in Houston this morning, and headed east along I-10 into Louisiana. We passed through Lake Charles, Lafayette, and Baton Rouge. We took I-12 at Baton Rouge to by-pass New Orleans. We came back into I-10 at Slidell and crossed into Mississippi. By the time we got to Gulfport, we had covered 400 miles, and decided to call it a day.

We got Lucy a very nice campsite here in Gulfport and got Lucy Settled in.

Tomorrow we will make it back to Santa Rosa Beach and close-out this trip.

Thanks for taking us along with you. Toot the horn as you pass by the Michigan Ave exit in Mobile, I am about 2 miles north of there.

Hi, it was fun and interesting traveling with you. My trailer hasn't moved since last December, but will be going somewhere in October.

More than two months on the road! I can't believe I've been reading your posts everyday for that long. The time has flown by. It's been fun traveling with you!
THANKS FOR SHARING!

ps: Did you ever find out what that structure was? (post #261 first photo)
My guess; it looks like an electrical sub-station under construction.

We traveled I-12 in Eastern Louisiana and the extremely rough interstate highway caused a segment protector to come loose and tear off our 2005 Classic. We were traveling about 45 MPH due to the rough road at the time. The next day we went to Foley RV in Gulfport and they did a great job installing the segment protector. It took them less than 2 hours to complete the job and we were back on the road heading to Ocala, FL. I was impressed with the service at Foley RV, the only Airstream dealer in Mississippi.

Well, we made it. We packed up Lucy in Gulfport this morning and completed the last leg of our trip. We covered the 200 miles to Santa Rosa Beach on I-10 to Pensacola, then dropped down to US 98 for the rest of the trip. We arrived at home late this afternoon.

To recap the journey, we were out in Lucy for 66 days. We traveled through 21 states. We camped in 33 different campgrounds. Fred covered just under 13,000 miles. Lucy was towed over 8,000 miles.

We had a great time, and really enjoyed the journey. So long until the next time.
