Alabama/Mississippi/ Louisiana: 12/31/2019

On the last day of 2019, we exited the Sunshine State.  Our next destination was Texas, but we knew that it would take a few days before we would arrive near friends in Roanoke.  December 31, 2019, was a beautiful, sunny morning as we arrived in Alabama.

We stopped at a rest area and played a little frisbee. 

Back on Hwy 10W, it was’t long before we entered the next state.

Scott and I had been discussing upgrading to a larger trailer as we recently decided to stay on the road for longer than initially planned.  We had been online searching for fifth wheels and found one in our price range at a Camping World in Biloxi, Mississippi.  We stopped in to just look and see what our options were.  The savvy salesman knew our price range, yet that didn’t stop him from showing us a rig that was way over our budget.  I fell in love with it immediately, and then he told us the price.  He never should have shown us this Montana fifth wheel.  He negotiated with us a little bit, but we didn’t sway.  A budget is a budget.  The salesman knew that I loved this RV, but we didn’t budge.  We had spent four hours looking at RV’s, and then walked out without making a purchase.  It was already 5:14 p.m. as we entered Louisiana.

We made the decision to stop driving for the day.  It was New Year’s Eve after all, and we were hungry.  I wanted to eat some home style Louisiana food.  We googled restaurants in the area and found a little place in Slidell that served seafood.  We ordered their fried seafood platter for two.

Not only did we not like the food, but we also felt pretty ill afterwards.  It was a rough evening.  Happy New Year!!! More to come in 2020 as we make our way to Texas.
