Travel to Tampa

We spent Sunday night at the Louisiana Welcome Station at the LA/TX border on I-10.  We got there about 11:30pm, after stopping at a Wal-Mart in Houston for fuel.

After a short night’s sleep, we met up with Mark and Sue at a truck just East of Lake Charles, and we immediately got on the road to Florida.  The day was long and somewhat uneventful. 

We made one stop in Slidell, LA to fill up on “cheap” fuel.  When we got to Gulfport, MS, we made another stop at a Flying “J” to fill up our propane tanks, since we would be stopped without hookups on Sunday night, and we wanted full tanks.  While at the Flying”J”, we spotted another Tiffin Allegro motor home from a long time ago, and with a ‘lot of miles’ on it:

Drive to Florida 002

Drive to Florida 001

It totally confused Mark………….. he did not know it the motor home was pulling the truck or the other way around!!

We continued on, and made it 90 miles into Florida on I-10, where we spent the night in a Wal-Mart parking lot.  On the way, we went through the tunnel at Mobile, AL, and Patsy snapped some pictures from our coach.

I used to have an Allegro motorhome that looked something like that - but in a LOT better shape. I think mine was a 1976 model but this was back in the late 1980's.
