So we extended our stay here at Benchmark Coach RV Park, which by the way, if you are in this area, is a nice place to stay with excellent wi-fi. Depending on how long it takes, we’re hoping to get at least a couple hours drive time in tomorrow, towards Texas. We’re aiming to be in Granbury, TX on Wednesday, through Christmas and leaving the following week.
As you all saw in David’s previous post, we are here in Meridian, Mississippi still. We were only scheduled to be here for 2 nights, leaving today actually, but as luck would have it, we sit.
Long story short, we had a coolant leak and there’s a shop here in Meridian that can fix it on Monday. See David’s post below for the full story.
Tasha, I must say, is enjoying the warmer weather we are having, finally. Today got up to 54 degrees and Tasha was laying outside just soaking up the sun. I don’t think I’ve seen a bigger smile on a dog.
We found him in the front window this morning, sound asleep. Our dash has a dip down in front where the blowers are. He apparently thought that dip fit him like a glove. I’m not sure how he actually got in there, as BK (which stands for Big Kitty) is not a small cat. He is so big he that when he stretches up on the wall, he can reach the light switch! So for him to squeeze himself into this dip in the dash is pretty amazing.
Our first night here we did not feel like cooking, so we googled restaurants in the area. We were surprised to find a Thai place, named Faraway Places, 2 miles down the street. We were in the mood for something different and this seemed to fit the bill. It seemed to get good reviews, so we went to check it out. It was interesting to say the least. The restaurant itself is in a double wide trailer. The reviewers said not to get scared off by that fact. I guess that’s not unusual for Mississippi. When we went inside, it was completely not what we expected. Quirky I believe is the word I am looking for. I felt like I was transported into the 60’s psychedelic era. There were old LP album covers nailed to the ceiling. All from the 60’s. There were lounge chairs and couches everywhere to just hang out. Incense hanging in the air, but not overpowering. Various lights hung from the ceiling and everywhere else they would stay. You couldn’t see the walls from all the “stuff” hanging on them. And the food? It was ok. Not terrible, but not excellent. I think we had more fun just looking around at everything. Here’s a couple pictures to give you an idea. We couldn’t use the flash as it would wash everything out.
So today we took advantage of the warmth and got a couple things done on the coach we have been putting off. Changed out the wiper blades. David climbed up to the roof and did some maintenance. Checked seals. Lubricated slides. Laundry. Oh what fun. It doesn’t matter where you are or how much fun you are having, you still need clean clothes.
