Our next stop along our eastward repositioning into Florida was actually one planned in a bit in advance.
We had been keeping in touch with our dear friends Forrest and Mary who wintered in Florida this year. They’d be on their way to volunteer at the Care continued assistance facility at the Escapee’s Rainbow Park in Livingston, Tex., later this month.
We compared schedules, and it looked like a quick rendezvous in the New Orleans area would work out best.
We had routed a bit more north of I-10 to Martin Dies, Jr. State Park outside Jasper, Tex., in part to avoid anticipated road closures due to the flooding of the Sabine River at the LA/TX state line. This turned out to be a fortuitous decision, as I-10 did indeed get shut down.
Even Highway 190 was closed for a bit, but re-opened up just in time. Barring that, we had mapped out a crossing over a dam road just a bit further north.
