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.
