Tuesday – October 15, 2013
We departed the Walmart in Abilene, Texas at 9:10 a.m., under an overcast sky, with a forecast of heavy rain to inundate the northern region of Texas. As we proceeded east on I-20, we could see the dark rain clouds forming in the distance. In short order, we were driving into a fairly heavy rain. The semi-trucks passing us created an additional hazard with the significant water spray generated from their trailers.
Our route took us east on I-20 to south on US-287 to south on I-45 to the Casita Factory at exit 237 on I-45. We needed to reschedule an appointment with the factory to repair a section of the fiberglass on the rear of our trailer. We were originally scheduled to have the repair performed on 10/23/13. Fortunately, they were able to accommodate our request and scheduled the repair for 10/16/13. While we were at the factory, we checked out the design changes they have made to the new models. While there, we purchased some push-button latches, as spares, for our cabinet doors.
We arrived at the American RV Park in Corsicana, Texas at 2:45 p.m. This private campground is located about 11 miles south of the Casita factory. This will be our home base for one night.
Total miles traveled today: 230
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
