Dad, (John) Zane and cousin 

Zane’s team lost the baseball game today it was a long trip for only one game at Rocky Mount. A lot of driving, an hour and a half from here, wait a minute I was riding not driving, still a long trip. I did catch a few winks on the way back. Ariana had two fast pitch softball games and did better. Zane will “guest play” the July tenth weekend, he has been invited to play on a friends teem.

Cunningham RV Park - Spartanburg, SC - Friday, June 26, 2015
Morning 71 Degrees, Wind SE 8 & gusting to Mph, Humidity 98%, Partly sunny. We were on the road shortly after eight again today, this is great trip as we are getting on the road at the best time of the day to drive. Getting most of our miles before noon then stopping early in the afternoon is great as we can have an early dinner and relax back at Buster.

Cunningham RV Park - Spartanburg, SC
Afternoon 91 Degrees high for today, Wind S 4 & gusting to 10 Mph, Humidity 59%, (hazy) mostly sunny. We stayed here last year on our trip east and was nice to return to a familiar place for the night. Our shortest driving day this trip 221 miles here from west Georgia. Buster went straight thru Atlanta on I 20 and I 75 onto I 85. On I 75 or I 85 heavy traffic from the time we entered thru the I 285 circle, with construction going on there. Buster tangled mirrors with a bob-tail tractor. Buster was in the third lane in from the right to be in the correct lane for I 85 and that was moving a little faster then the second lane in and Buster pushed the tractor mirror forward and Buster’s mirror leaned back enough that it was unusable. When clear we both pulled onto the shoulder to assess the damages. His glass was broken and Busters mirror has a small white paint transfer. After having Georgia State Patrol write a report we were on our way. With the slow traffic and stooping for GHP it was less than only one hour of lost time.

On the road with Buster fueled at ten after eight this morning, a record for us and Buster. I was I a rush to get going I did not take any pictures of the park, just not remembering to snap a shot.

Benchmark RV Park - Meridian, Mississippi
Afternoon 102 Degrees high for today, Wind N 2 & gusting to & 7 Mph, Humidity 49%, hazy sunny. Bonnie and I stopped here last year coming east, nice clean park but small only 27 sites so a reservation is needed as they do fill the sites most nights.

Three hundred and twelve miles later on Interstate ten and interstate fifty-nine with a short run in I 20 we are in Meriden, Mississippi for the night. That is our longest one day trip as we have not done three hundred miles in one day before with Buster. Seven forty-five we left the camp ground drive the five miles to near the interstate where we refueled Buster. We crossed east of the Mississippi River near Baton Rouge, LA


While at the last gate I wrote about the low cell phone signal we had one bar 1X when actually trying to make a call I would press send and wait over a minute for any change other times Bonnie would try texting and have it reject for no signal or take a long time to send. Well Bonnie has been enjoying herself riding down the interstate texting. Most times if I looked at the phone I would see an additional bar when actually trying to transmit a call. Yesterday she mentioned to me a text she went out in on-time, or so fast she could not believe it was done that fast.  Going down the road we are getting 4G two or more bars for a signal. I reminded her we are traveling a route with cell towers close by major interstate highway she should get that fast service.


You can see I was out early by the darkness of the picture

After another half day of driving we left Texas behind us and made it over one hundred miles into Louisiana today. Our day started early as we left about eight thirty and stopped about two o’clock this afternoon. There were fuel and potty breaks today but that was only a few minutes each for two hundred ninety-six miles all Interstate Ten travel. I took the direct route thru Houston only one short slow area where cars were changing lanes for other routes. It is like three days travel in two days, five hundred and fifty two miles we are now from our last gate.
