Feels Like Home!

We have been busy traveling this past week.  We traveled to our hometown last week to spend Thanksgiving with the family.  Scout and I didn't see any family though.  We just stayed in the motor home while the folks visited.  We did visit the state park that is nearby.  We took a long walk on Thanksgiving morning. We enjoyed that.  We did partake in a few bites of ham and turkey.


We set out on Sunday morning for our long journey to Houston.  We were ready to leave at 7 a.m. but the motor home had other ideas. Our air brakes wouldn't hold air.  I think that is what they are called.  We ended up having to go back to our site while Dad tried to figure out the problem. We wanted to be at our site in Oklahoma City before it got dark and as time slipped away, we didn't think that was going to happen. Finally, the air brakes started working and we left at 8:45 a.m.  We think there may be moisture in the filter or something like that because when it heated up outside, the brakes started working.  We arrived in Oklahoma City a little after 5 p.m. and were able to set up before it was totally dark.  Dad did not put our jacks down or release the air from the brakes, so everything was in working order when we took off Monday morning. We thought everything would go smoothly on Monday, but there was a dense fog in Oklahoma City.  We waited to leave until 7:30 a.m., but it was still there.  We couldn't wait for it to lift because we wanted to be in Houston before dark.  We drove for two and half hours in heavy fog.  We stopped to get gas and we had a heck of a time finding the gas station. We knew it was there, but we were right on top of it before we saw it.  The fog suddenly lifted at 10 a.m.  The rest of the drive was pretty normally. We hit bad traffic in Houston due to construction, rush hour and well, just Houston traffic.  We pulled into the campground and we were greeted warmly by the park managers.  They remembered us!  We were given our old site.  The place is full, so what are the odds of that?  Scout and I immediately walked around and sniffed everything. We recognized several of the campers that were here when we were here earlier this year.  I am excited to be here.  Scout is not as happy as me as she says it is too hot.  It will be 80 today, but it will turn cooler later in the week.  She might be happier when it is in the 40's.  40's is cool for here, but it is better than what Missouri will have later this week.


Dad flies back to Kansas City tomorrow night. He will be back in 19 days, so that is not too bad and it looks like we will be together after that.  We will provided more details later.

We had a very rainy week.  It rained every day except for yesterday.  Rainy days mean we can keep our shades open, which is nice. The da...
