Days 38 & 39: Wichita Falls, TX to Defuniak Springs, FL Left Wichita Falls at 7:30 and made good time to and through the middle of Dallas. What a confusing mass of interstates! 532 miles later, we stopped in Clinton, MS for the night. Poor Milo was bored to tears. On Sat, we got out of camp about 7:30 headed for home. It had started raining during the night and rained off and on as far as Mendenhall, then it became steady rain, sometimes really heavy. Just found out that Mobile had 13" of rain yesterday. Traffic was REALLY heavy on I-10 - - both ways. Westbound traffic going into the Mobile tunnel was backed up for at least 8 miles, and just barely moving. Got home to DFS in the middle of a break in ... read more

Leaving Patterson Louisiana we had a beautiful drive along the coast and drove through New Orleans. We were surprised it looked as good as it did. We saw some distruction but not as much as we expected. The worst part was the far eastern edge right before we went over the bridge. New Orleans has lost a lot of income from the media stories making it sound bad. Our interest was in Florida so we kept going east on Hwy 10. This is a great Hwy. but all you see is trees trees trees. DeFuniak Springs was a delightful surprise. When I was checking in at the motel I just happened to ask the receptionist: What is there to see in DeFuniak Springs? The receptionist was quick to respond: We have one of two perfect round ... read more
