There is probably not an RVer anywhere in America who hasn’t heard how terrible Interstate 10 across Louisiana is. To hear some people tell it, not only will that road shake your rig apart and loosen the fillings in your teeth, it will send women into labor even if they aren’t pregnant, and will create seismic activity worse than the San Francisco earthquake.
Nonsense. That’s a myth. It rates right up there with the stories about Elvis still being alive and working in a convenience store someplace in Arkansas. Here are a couple of news flashes for you – Interstate 10 is not bad at all in Louisiana, and Elvis really is dead!
In the last two days we have driven across the state from the Texas border eastbound, and while there was a time when Interstate10 was rough, these days it’s no worse than other roads in America, and a lot better than many of them. A week ago in Texas the stretch of I-10 west of Fort Stockton was throwing things out of our motorhome’s cabinets and left a big mess by the time we reached our destination. Sunday, coming into Orange, Texas, it was hard hanging onto the steering wheel because the interstate was so rough. By comparison, 90% of Interstate10 in Louisiana was a piece of cake. Yes, there were a few bumps along the way, and some short stretches that felt like we had a flat tire. But they weren’t very long and they weren’t all that frequent.
