We spent the night in Shreveport Louisiana last night (Friday) and got to see one of the Boomtown Casinos that are scattered around the country. For those of you that don't know I work for the Cashell family that founded Boomtown in Reno Nevada and sold it in 1989.

We are in Baton Rouge tonight and it is starting to look like Louisiana. We haven't heard much of the Cajun Accent yet but I am guessing we will.

Pearl and I had a nice healthy Picnic going down the road today!

Maybe not as good as Leslie's Salad Bar but a close second or third place.

We drove I-49 from Shreveport to Baton Rouge and they are tearing out about 20 miles of what appeared to be a wooden road from many decades ago. There appeared to have been two lanes of wooden base that was 12 or more feet wide each. I am not sure what it used to be but it sure looked like an old road made of wood.

We couldn't find much of a selection of RV parks but ended up in this one. It doesn't have cable so I had to set up the direct TV dish. I just got it working and some knot head parked right beside me and blocked my signal. I had to move the Jeep and put the Satellite dish on top of the Jeep. It is working just fine but if someone else pulls in the vacant space beside me I will either have to read a book or go sight seeing. It's is so hot and humid, I am thinking reading a book might win out.

Pearl put a Pork Roast in the slow cooker this afternoon, so it cooked all day while we were driving. We will be eating in just a couple of minutes;

Mashed Potatoes
Black Eyed Peas

and Margaretta's for dinner.



  1. I loved today's pictures and story! A healthy picnic while traveling down the road plus a roast in the crock pot while you traveled! Hope you don't have any new neighbors so you can enjoy your satellite tonight! Sounds like LOTS OF FUN! ---Tonya

  2. Did you borrow an XM or Sirius from anyone?It makes the miles go by more bearable.
