We left the campground about 8:30 continuing west on I-10. Got gas in Alabama for $2.89/gal.; a bargain by todays standards. Stopped at the Fairview-Riverside State Park in Madisonville, LA about 3:30pm. Fairly convenient to I-12. $22/night. We had thought about going into New Orleans for the day to visit the French Market. NOLA is crowded on a typical day but tomorrow is New Years Eve plus the Sugar Bowl is Tuesday plus it's supposed to rain. Perhaps on the way home?
Today was another long driving day. Once we make it through Texas, we'll get back to our 2 to 3 hour max. drive per day. Unfortunately, TX is a long three day drive from where we are tonight. Bla!!
