We departed the American RV Park in Corsicana, Texas at 12:45 p.m. under an overcast sky and chilly weather, with frequent rain showers forecast throughout the day. A cold front came through yesterday and the temperature will only hit 60 degrees F today. We stopped at the Walmart in Corsicana to get a few items before proceeding on to the Casita Trailer factory in Rice, Texas. We arrived at the factory at 2:10 p.m. and dropped our trailer off to have some fiberglass repaired on the back of the trailer. Our spare tire had worn a shallow groove into the fiberglass there and needed to be repaired. We have since remounted the spare tire to a carrier mounted on the bumper.
The Casita factory’s service hours start at 3:30 p.m. I presume this is because they must pull production workers from the assembly line to perform customer maintenance. They request customers’ requiring maintenance have their trailers at the factory by 2:30 p.m.
We picked our trailer up at 4:15 p.m. The Casita maintenance personnel did a wonderful job of repairing the fiberglass in such a short period of time. We are happy campers!
We arrived at the Walmart in Sulphur Springs, Texas at 6:35 p.m. This will be our home for tonight.
Upon our arrival we were greeted by thousands of birds in the Walmart parking lot. They literally cover portions of the parking lot and every tree is filled with them. I think they are Starlings and migrating south for the winter. Their incessant chirping continues unabated and is so loud one must raise their voice to be heard. We are hopeful they will quiet down when it gets dark.
Total miles traveled today: 114
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
