September 8th & 9th

September 8th & 9th

Aug 8th    Huntsville to Livingston, TexasIt was a very hot day up to 100 degrees. I arrived at an Indian Reservation campground. It was very nice, and I was so ready to call it a day with the heat. After I got set, I crawled in the camper, which has a good air conditioning and I slept for two hours. I must have been exhausted!I got up and made myself go out and adjust my clutch, because I felt it slipping today on the rolling hills.I checked the oil and couldn’t wait to get back in the camper. Had soup for dinner and went to bed. I know I slept for 11 ½ hours.Aug 9th       Livingston to Jasper, TexasI was up bright and early and ready to head down the road before it got so hot. Actually today we had a cloud cover and it didn’t get as hot as these past few days  I thought Johnabilt even ran little better, since it was not as hot.Route 190 is a nice route. It has a wide shoulder most of the time, but oh boy, am I picking up nails and junk on my magnets! I saw lots and lots of logging trucks.  I stopped at a gas station to call a radio station that asked me to call when I get within 20 miles of Jasper. They would like to come out today for an interview.I was calling and a young Veteran came by and asked about our mission and what OSC stands for. I had a nice chat with him and he signed the book and left. It wasn’t long, and he came back and asked if I was hungry. He said, “There is a good restaurant across the road, and I would like to buy you breakfast.”I went along over and we had a nice visit. He loved our stories and asked the owner to come over, and he introduced us.Before I left, the owner had all the employees come out for a picture by the rig. Thank you Keith for breakfast. And thank you to Tammy of Tammy’s Kitchen. Tammy invited me back another time and the meal would be on her.I had a shorter day today and was glad. I wasn’t feeling my best from all the heat.Arrived at Log Cabin RV Park along route 190. I think I will stay here two nights to rest up and get caught up with my maintenance.I did a load of wash and went to bed.
