Freedom and Liberty
I travel in Freedom but sleep in the security of Liberty (not only on the road, but in this amazing country of ours)

Headed to Louisiana (family emergency)

Location: R & R Campground (el. 1,350 ft); Mitchell, South Dakota

A family emergency has come up back in Louisiana. My youngest son had a stroke. He is in the hospital and the doctors are saying maybe 4 to 6 weeks of physical therapy will bring all motor functions back. His mother is with him and is keeping me informed on everything. 

One of the reasons for me coming to Mitchell was to get a new set of tires put on Freedom. It is questionable if she would make the 1,100 mile trip to Louisiana without them. I have an appointment for 1:00 pm on Monday for the new tires. I'll pull out of here early Tuesday morning. It's a little much for me to drive straight through like I used to when younger and sleeping in a truck stop parking lot won't work due to the heat. I will stop Tuesday night somewhere in Missouri and arrive in Louisiana on Wednesday evening.

  1. Darrell,
    I am sorry to hear of your son having a stroke. We can hope he will recover well. In the meantime, please keep in mind that arriving a day later and safe is much better than pushing the towing too hard and not arriving.
