Transit to Duson, Louisiana

We got up early this morning at 0530, had some coffee; then finished packing up and hit the road before 0800. After a quick stop at Krispy Kreme for some Original Glazed we continued up Highway 59 and hopped on I-10. Twenty minutes later we were through the tunnel at Mobile and we just drove all day.

The scenery was pretty bland; here’s a sample.


We arrived at the Frog City RV Park in Duson, Louisiana about 1445, set up and then headed out to Prejeans for dinner; Connie had a Tuna steak and Neil had crab cakes with crawfish sauce and the blackened shrimp that came with Connie’s Tuna since she can’t eat them.  Here’s a shot of our site 14 at Frog City; we paid $20.17 for the night with our Passport America discount.


Tomorrow we’ll do it all again but should be on the road more quickly; we have left over Orange Cinnamon Rolls from yesterday for breakfast and less breakdown of the campsite. Since this is a pull through site, we stayed hitched up and only hooked up electricity and water and popped the slides out along with putting the jacks down to take the weight off of BAT. We should be out of here 20 minutes after we start breaking camp. We’ve got a longer drive tomorrow by about 50 miles or so but should still arrive in Georgetown, Texas outside of Austin before 1600. Hopefully the road will be better tomorrow…I-10 in Louisiana has been really rough so far although once we got west of Baton Rouge the last 20 miles or so were decent…all of us hope that continues.

    Safe travel.

      IT was a long hard day today. Mileage wasn’t all that bad since it was only 320 miles but the road was really, really bad once we got into Louisiana. Concrete and very bumpy with joints every 10 feetwhich made the ride really uncomfortable.

      Still though; not a bad ride overallgetting through downtown Baton Rouge and the construction there was a bit stressful as well.

    We remember how bad I-10 is in LA. Wish they’d fix it! Looks like a nice park to stay. Will mark that for future travel. We’re heading to Houston in May…

      It’s a great overnight stop park, easy off and on to I-10, although it is a bit noisier as one would expect. Friendly lady running the joint, decent dinner…what more could you ask for in an overnighter.


      The three kinds of stress…nuclear, cooking and a&&hole. Jello is the key to the relationship.
