Finally on the road

Well, we finally got on the road yesterday, Dec. 26th at 6:30AM...we headed South on I-39, thru Bloomington, down State rt. 51 , on I-57 to I-55 and landed in Old Davidson State Park in Pocahontas Arkansas about 4:30 PM almost dark. No one was in the park but us...should we be concerned...and as it turned out Dennis forgot our adapter to convert 50 amp to 30, sooooo we had no electric and it was pouring rain, so we decided to forget the H2O..and use our water on board.
We sat inside, heated with propane and had a few cocktails....ate our homemade chicken soup about 7PM and hit the sack at 7:30...it was a long drive.
We got up about 6AM and left Pocahontas Arkansas at 7AM...no coffee..no shower....just alot of fog after a rainy nite. We drove thru fog until noon and stopped at an RV store to pick up a converter....yea!...tonite we have a microwave!! Decided to stop in Texarkana after calling Canyon Lake, TX and finding out they are full...all of the Texans love to camp out for Xmas and stay thru New Years....so we decided to stop at Wright Patman Lake in Texarkana thru New Years...we like it here and are all set up..Dennis is, as usual, my hero ..after setting up our two satellites...one for TV and one for computer...life is good....Our fireplace is worth it's weight in gold....we are all warm and fuzzy and will keep in touch....the Caves
