Rayford Crossing RV Resort

Shake, rattle, and roll. That would characterize a fair section of our 11-hour drive yesterday. To be fair, most of the drive from Heritage Motor Coach Resort in Orange Beach, Alabama to Rayford Crossing RV Resort was fine. Good roads and pleasant driving conditions.

There were sections of I-10, particularly in Louisiana and at the border into Texas, that were remarkably bad.

We did make it safely to our site at Rayford Crossing. Traffic in Houston, late in the day Saturday, was heavy and the last 30 minutes or so of a very long day behind the wheel, proved a bit challenging.

I was very happy to get our coach up on the jacks, despite the somewhat uneven concrete pad.

Rayford Crossing is a nice place to park for a couple of nights. Clean, quiet yet very much in the middle of a large, busy urban environment.

Rest and recovery day. Tomorrow’s drive is a bit shorter, only 4 hours behind the wheel.

Here is a video of our drive from Heritage Motor Coach Resort. The video ends before we made Houston because, well, you will see why towards the latter part of the video.

    Hey there neighbor – I’ve been keeping track of your pursuits from Canada and Florida, and it seems you are now in Texas about 350-miles south from me – I’m in the Dallas area about 9-miles east of the southern entrance to the DFW airport – I’m in Irving, Texas, real close to MacArthur Blvd. and Airport Freeway (aka: Highway 183). If you are coming my way, I’d love to meet you two and get a glimpse of your motor coach – we previously talked about the sun shades several months ago – Let me know – Ken Hardesty

      Hello Ken! Thank you for dropping by and following along!!

      We are doing a rapid crossing to California, literally driving and resting only. We pick up our jacks first thing tomorrow morning and keep heading down I-10 West until we get to California. We are planning to be in California in another six days so still a lot of highway miles ahead of us. We won’t be able to connect this time but definitely look forward to connecting another time down the road. Hope all is well.
