After being at our stick home since 10/1, we leave tomorrow for south Texas and hopefully better a climate. January here set records for the longest periods of cold weather. Our gas bill was $330, also a record. Our neighbors who like it warmer had bills from $500 to $1,000. Next year, we will leave the day after Christmas.
The Plan: Our first leg is a one hour drive to Dorothy’s brothers home on Lake Mitchell. Then another hour south to our daughters the next night. Monday, we will make the long jump to Tickfaw SP, just east of Baton Rouge. Then we will cross to Sam Houston SP on the other side of Louisiana. Then perhaps a night or two on the Gulf coast south of Houston, before heading inland to Victoria to see some friends and let Dorothy drive a D3 Cat. February 1, we will arrive in Rockport and stay there for two months. Finally, we will spend 2/3 weeks in Big Bend and few days around Fort Davis. We plan to be back in Hoover May 1.
Our odometers read 31,730 for KoKo and 24,600 for Pelli. That’s 55,000 combined in the last two years.
