Time to Move On

Well after spending the last 3 months in Texas, it was time to head out.   To avoid traffic,  we pulled out at 5:20am.  Driving thru Houston gets tricky so you have to leave before the rush hour or wait it out. We opted to leave early so we wouldn’t hit traffic in the afternoon Baton Rouge mess.  We have travelled this route from Houston to Florida many times and have some experience in the timing.

First stop, Hollywood Casino in Bay St Louis, Ms.  This is a nice little stop that we frequent.  We arrived around 12:30, got settled, had some lunch and gambled a little.   We had been notified a few days ago that Mark and Dortha were enroute to Alabama and would also stop for a few nights. We parked across from them and when they returned from site seeing, had a nice chat with them. Dortha had planned to cook  dinner and since we had all eaten lunch, we dined on grilled chicken sandwiches.   Yummy, thanks to you both.  The plan was then made to head over to the Silver Slipper Casino.  We have never been to that one and really enjoyed our time there. Kevin liked it even more since he came out way ahead. He offered to buy dinner for us all the next night at the Crabfest.   Unfortunately, Friday’s weather forecast,  forced Dortha into deciding that they should leave a day early, to beat out the storms.  So after hugs, they were off.  We relaxed, took a drive and of course stopped back at the casino. After all, Kevin had to give back some of his winnings, lol… We enjoyed a wonderful dinner buffet. His was comped but we had to pay for mine. They had lots of choices but I made my choice of dunganese crab. They were so good.

I have just added a RV Blog Network to the RVThereYet directory. I am trying to create a bit of community amongst RVers who blog and all their collective readers. RVers can read your blog about a certain RVing subject and then read another blog on the subject. A lot of valuable information can be gleaned when we all get together. All your posts on the network link back to your blog and it's posts, so you should see an increase in traffic when the network really gets going.

If you would like to add your blog please visit and follow the directions.

Kind regards,

Kenny Scott
