Where are we today ?Today I have a relatively short travel day planned, just gonna head to Robert Louisiana and a membership campground for the night. a Coast to Coast membership gets us (me) in there for $10.00 a night full hookups. Its warmer weather today in the mid 50'sf and sunny. My plan here is to winterize our coach. Drain the hot water tank, fresh water tank, blow out the lines with my compressor and pump in the Rv antifreeze to protect our coach. Now I have never needed to do this since we bought it in 2006. Glad that I hooked up the winterizing system last year just in case. Took a couple hours but got it done and not too cold outside. Would have been nicer and quicker with Suzie here (darn I miss her).

Stopped for fuel in Beau Bridge La at the Pilot $1.79.9 a gallon best price so far. Then at the Camping World in Hammond La (Dixie Rv) for some Rv and windshield washer antifreeze. Went outside to open the rear compartment door and could not get it open ? Check with service and the nice manager said to check with a Tech over in another area. He came out did some checking and said looks like we need a new latch. Need to remove the skin on the door to replace the latch ! Big Job!! So we fiddled for a bit and managed to get it open.(no charge) Now thinking about this, it is the same compartment that I replaced the shock(spring) that holds it open in Desert HotSprings. so a bit later I put the old one back on and now the door works just fine, newer is not always better. Guess I will deal with the door falling on my head! This is the same compartment door that we had the accident with in 2010 in Cullican Mexico and repaired and repainted on ours site one the beach for just over $300.00, was awesome service we got. So not surprising that their could be and issue with it.

Now because of the cold weather here I was warned that water would be shut off at 5 pm. Deep freeze tonight for this whole area New Orleans included. So got these things done in the sunshine had a showers before they turned off the water then inside to turn up the heat, and prep supper.
Easy supper tonight a breaded Chicken Breast with Broccoli and Cheese we had in the freezer, baked in the oven. Whipped up a salad, added a few rice crackers and did the trick. Paper plate so no dishes (no water now).
All in all was a good productive day, keeping right on schedule so far.
Thanks for stopping by again and keeping me company sure do enjoy your comments and support.
