March 30 - On the Road Again
We finally made it out of San Antonio! We'd planned to spend a few days in Denton and visit family but that plan was foiled by a slide that wouldn't go all the way in. Luckily it was an easy fix - we just needed to get the slide back on track and tighten the tension on the chain and we were ready to roll. We saw the remains of a spectacular accident on I-35 before we even got out of town. A semi blew a tire, hit one of those overhead structures that directional signs are put on, and the structure fell on the semi behind the first semi. No one was hurt, but what a mess! We left town three hours after the accident and traffic was still backed up for six miles. Lucky for us the accident was in I-35 South and we were headed north!
A rainy winter makes for very nice bluebonnets and we saw a lot of them along the road from San Antonio to Corsicana.
We spent one night in a church parking lot in Corsicana and two nights in the driveway of our friends in Texarkana. Becky and Donny were once full time RVers but now have a house and a new dog named Lizzie. They still have their RV and followed us to Mountain View a week later.
We attended Sunday school and church at Hardy UMC in Texarkana. What a lovely church.
