The installation of the DeeZee toolbox on the tongue of the Casita trailer was completed this morning. Larry Gamble of Little House Customs did an outstanding job of fabricating and welding a frame to hold the toolbox. It looks great and will now provide us with extra storage space for wheel chocks, our BAL leveler and other trailer setup gear.
We bid goodbye to Larry and his wife Debbie and were on our way at 12:45 p.m. Our destination is Canyon Lake, Texas. Our route took us on Texas routes 515, 11, 19 and 31 to I-35.
Traffic on I-35 reminded us of traffic in Chicago during rush hour. Several miles north of Austin the traffic slowed to a crawl and remained that way through Austin. Most of the delay was due to three separate multiple vehicle accidents. With a speed limit of 75 mph through an area of bumper-to-bumper traffic I would surmise that this area is prone to frequent accidents.
It was after 7:00 p.m. and quite dark, we decided to pack it in for the evening. We found a 24-hour Walmart at exit 220 on I-35. This would be our home for the evening.
Total miles traveled today: 272
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
