Monday – 03/25/13
A busy morning is scheduled here at Little House Customs in Yantis, Texas. The owner, Larry, is going to install the fast-drain modification to our gray water tank on our Casita trailer. But first, I must rinse the black tank out into our portable tank to minimize any spillage when Larry cuts out a short section of the black tank drainpipe to accommodate the modification. At 8:00 a.m. all was ready for the installation.
Larry finished the fast-drain modification in a short period of time. It really looks good and we are looking forward to faster drain times of the gray water tank at the sewer dump stations. At 12:05 p.m., we had the trailer hitched to our tow vehicle, said our good-byes and were on our way to our next destination.
We are traveling a short distance of 100 miles to Texarkana, Texas. It is a beautiful sunny day with the temperature in the mid-50’s. It is a good day for traveling. We prefer not to travel on the Interstate highway systems whenever possible, in order to enjoy the scenic and cultural flavor of the local communities along the way to our destinations. In keeping with that tradition, our route out of Yantis, Texas took us east on TX-515 to east on TX-11 and then north on US-59 to Texarkana.
We arrived at the Rocky Point Campground at Wright-Patman Lake at 2:15 p.m. and selected campsite #A37 for our stay of four nights. Our campsite is located in a wooded area away from the lake. It is quite windy today with wind gusts up to 30 mph. The woods between our campsite and the lake provided an effective barrier to the gusty winds blowing off of the lake. The temperature is expected to drop into the high 20’s tonight so we are prepared to spend a warm cozy night in our Casita trailer.
Camping Fee: $10.00 per night with our Golden Age Passport.
Total miles traveled today: 100
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
