Location: New Rockdale RV Park; Mansfield, Louisiana
As with all things in life, we must adapt and overcome. There is a reason RV'ers say they make their plans in jello, because sometimes life gets in the way.
This change is not a big one, but it will delay my departure date from June 11th to June 17th. My X-wife has a doctor's appointment on the 15th which I want to attend. Depending on what the doctor says will determine if I leave on the 17th or I have to issue plan change #2.
To make this change, I rescheduled my first campground to the new dates. Surprisingly, the campsite I was wanting was still available on the 17th. To me, that was the "sign" to make the change and attend the doctor's appointment. I canceled the second and third campgrounds which were at Corps of Engineer campgrounds and made a new reservations at another COE campground. The length of stay in the two canceled campgrounds was 6 day with the new campground only being 2 days. The new one is on Enid Lake in Mississippi and is located alongside Interstate 55. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd trips will average about 200 miles before I intercept my original route at Pickwick Dam Campground in Tennessee.
I have also been working on points of interest along the route. When I find something interesting, I post it on Google Earth which also has the campgrounds highlighted. So far, I've found some civil war battlefields, Indian mounds, National Cemeteries, dams, waterfalls, etc.
|This is from Google Earth and shows a portion of my route. The sites in purple are the campgrounds and the sites in red are items of interest in that area.
This will just be a short post to sort of "page mark" the plan change.
Ya'll take care of each other. Maybe I'll Cya down the road.
