Our Location: Roosevelt State Park, Morton, MS
Some rain, some wind which resulted in a bit of debris littering and bouncing off the roof top. Under some pine trees and the cones are loud when they come knocking. We slept well though even with the drumming on the roof from time to time.

The last two days have been errand days, groceries, fuel, laundry, propane, etc. We didn’t do much else because of the cold and damp weather. We even did something we don’t normally do, we grabbed some KFC for lunch on one of errand days. A good, once in a while, type of meal for us but we did enjoy it.

The laundry we found was in the small town of Morton, extremely clean, very friendly and reasonably priced. We made note for when we pass through this way again. We also found a place to fill our propane tanks. Neill Propane on Hwy 80, two tanks, one big, one little for a total of $37.50. Both tanks were completely empty.

We found the Walmart in Forest for a little shopping and I think next time we’re passing through this area we will make that Walmart a night’s stop. Very close to I-20, lots of room for overnight parking and a number of big rigs parked there, I’m sure there is room for a 5’er or two.

The overnight cold here reached down to around the 20F/ -6.6C and the day time high has hovered in the mid 40’s/ 6.6C. It looks as if the cold front has finally passed and it will begin warming up now. Although tomorrow looks like rain after that it looks to be very nice all along the rest of our route.

A chat with my buddy Ron today has us hoping to have company for most of our winter travels. Of course Doctors appointments will be the determining factor. We will have to wait and see.
So some quiet days, a couple of photos and that is tonight’s post. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.

Until next time…. take care, be safe,
