Louisiana

The second day of my travels has taken me to Louisiana.  I’ve decided to stay at a Casino for the night…it’s free & has electricity.  When I left Texas, my intention was to drive only four or five hours a day, but this day I ended up driving about seven and one half hours due to construction along the way. The “campground” ended up being a parking lot with a few spaces having electricity. I also had to unhook the truck since there wasn’t enough room in the spaces…it was good practice.

After settling in, I thought I should check out the casino.  I was totally amazed to find penny slot machines…did not know there was such a thing still in existence.  I played for probably an hour and a half, at which time I was $66.00 ahead…the perfect time to take my winnings and run..run..run!  Slept pretty well, in spite of the rather constant traffic.

Below is a picture of the bridge I will have to cross in the morning…Lord help me…I hate bridges!

  1. Delightful to read! You have a good attitude, making the best out of a not so pleasant situation: “I also had to unhook the truck since there wasn’t enough room in the spaces…it was good practice.” Indeed: ” I was $66.00 ahead…the perfect time to take my winnings and run..run..run! ” LOL You are courageous to have faced the bridge and prepare yourself for the next day’s journey! Great writing! I could feel your adventurous energy!
