A New Mugshot . . .

We were pulling out of our site at 8:28 this morning, 2 minutes ahead of my schedule. This was surprising since I didn’t even get up until 7, and I had done no packing last night.

But somehow I got packed, the truck loaded, the oil level checked, and we were ready to go on time. We had dropped Karma off at our office manager’s last night so no problem with that.

Our first stop was about 45 minutes later at the Baytown Buc-ee’s for fuel, coffee, and kolaches. And a new 40oz mug.

Come And Take It Mug

I had left my other one at home, so this one caught my eye. Mine came with a handle, and I got to fill it with coffee for free. Nice!

We made a pit stop at the TX/LA border rest area, which was finally open after about 3 years of construction.

Then after another stop at the Flying J at the Breaux Bridge exit, we arrived at our La Quinta hotel about 3:30. But before we checked in, we decided to have dinner at the Cracker Barrel right next door.

And since it was Thursday, Jan was able to get her favorite Turkey and Dressing, while I got a order of the Beans and Greens with a Side Salad.

Checking into the La Quinta, we found it nice but somewhat dated. But since it was only $54 vs $104 for the La Quinta just a couple of miles north on I-12, it was a great deal.

Overall today was a really nice trip, with no construction slowdowns or traffic accidents. In fact I think it was the first trip we’ve ever done with absolutely no problems.

Tomorrow we’ve got a 287 mile run on to  Montgomery with a lunch stop near Mobile at Sonny’s BBQ, another of our favorites.

Thought For The Day:

They call it a ‘selfie’ because ‘narcissistic’ is too hard to spell.
