We made it to Texas Finally !!!!

We were loaded up and Headed out on Thursday. Rolling at 4:50 AM all signals GO !! The Black Pig was up for the Task too. My goal was Texarkana Ar. Well we blow threw there and finally bedded down at Atlanta State park in Texas. The day’s ride was some 822 miles my personal Best with pulling the Big Dog Designer. This Atlanta park is really a great place. Yogi took me for a nice walk in the morning.

The next morning we were up and anthem and rolling by 8:30 am. we started out on US 59 a good road but running thru a lot of towns. We pulled into  Brazos Bend State park. They were booked full-up for the week-end. Well they told us we could go into the over flow area. The Ranger Lady said we could go into the Host site. Heck I think it’s the best site in the park.

On the Road Again …… Not !!

Well we started for the Highway on Wednesday Jan. 5th at 5:30 AM things were Good. Truck was packed, animals ready, Marti was loaded up and were off. We were Rolling, the weather was cooperating too. Things were great till around Paxton IL. Suddenly the Truck slowed down I had it floored and a speed of 55 mph. Well I got off into a Rest Area and that was good. I thought my fuel had Gelled so I added the anti gel and left the rest area at a whopping 30 mph. That’s not too good on the Interstate. Some 12 miles later we got off. Turned around to go home well the speed picked up to 55 mph that’s not too bad. We finally made it home un hooked the trailer and off to the dealer.

As you would know it the truck ran great at top speeds all to Peotone. I shook my head thinking what the #### 100_2342We are waiting our turn into the Garage. I just called to try to find out and they said SOON so here we sit.

Well we’re not on the side of the road so that’s a Plus and we are Safe. Guess we will be on the road soon I Hope !!
