On the Road -- Fall Trip

We left Tuesday for our Fall trip.  This trip is coordinated with our appointment at the Tiffin factory for warranty repairs, and some modifications.  Our appointment at the factory is on Monday, September 28, and we have an appointment for the modifications at Custom RV for some modifications.

Our plan was to arrive at the Red Bay campground at the factory on Friday morning to ensure a site would be available.

On Tuesday, we drove down to Freeport, TX and took the coast road to High Island, TX, which included the Texas ferry ride to the Bolivar Peninsula.  We wanted to see the progress on the Hurricane IKE repairs.  We found that a lot of rebuilding has been done, but a whole lot more is left to be completed!

We had coated the front of the Bus and the windshield with Rejex because it is the time of year for ‘love bugs’.  It turned out that the bugs were not out because of all of the rain.  Here are some pictures on the ferry ………….

Some Pelicans flew along with the ferry:

Once we got onto the Bolivar Peninsula, it continued to rain on us all the way to I-10.  It continued to rain as we drove to Alexandria, LA and spent the night on a Wal-Mart parking lot.
