We leisurely got up this morning and started our make ready chores for travel to Canton. We still had moisture in the air and overcast sky's. We were not in a big hurry to roll down the highway so we decided to grab breakfast at a Denny's near us.
We headed north at 9:30am under a light drizzle so much for the washing, but there is always The Solution. To our surprise there was quite a bit of traffic for a Christmas day. There were numerous 5er's and motorhomes on the highway today mostly heading south. This is Highway 59 between Livingston and Cleveland TX.
This was what we were expecting to see. This is Highway 69 between Rusk and Jacksonville TX.
During last nights rain we discovered a small leak in our bathroom. This doesn't come as a surprise after seeing all those cracks when I washed the roof earlier. Someone was telling me there was a real good sealing tape that you can just lay down on your seams without having to apply sealant caulk. If any of you out there know the name and out it is used I would appreciate any information you can give me.
We arrived at Canton at 1:30pm. Other than the higher than anticipated traffic our trip was without incident. The kind we like. Sandy did fight strong winds out of the north 20-29 mph they hit us head on and I'm sure our fuel mileage suffered.
It's much colder up here than Houston. Our low tonight is to be
27F. You could tell it was cold with the wind howling as all the cattle and horses had their rear ends facing north. Unloading our bays was a chore in itself. Thought I would never thaw out once I got back in the motorhome.
Shoppers Alert….. Sandy has set a record for herself. . . .one week without going to Wally World. While in Houston we did not take one step into a Wal-Mart. I bet their stock dropped a bit.
Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers.
