Planning for Memphis...One Day At A Time

I hope this finds everyone having a great holiday weekend.

We are babysitting this weekend. Karen and Kenneth have gone to College Station to the Aggie Football game and to visit with one her old college roommates. I have been doing laundry and trying to pack a few more boxes. The new motor home has arrived in Memphis and we are suppose to leave on Tuesday to take delivery on Wednesday. Now, with Hurricane Gustav on the way, we are thinking we should rethink our plans.

If it stays on track to come in on the Louisiana or Texas coast it will travel west and north towards North Texas. Memphis should not be affected, but, if we wait until Tuesday we would have to travel through the heavy rains from here to there. So, we are thinking we should try to leave tomorrow afternoon or Monday morning at the latest to avoid the possible heavy rains that occur on the east side of the hurricane. Then if Memphis does have rain, at least we would be parked and not traveling through it. Now, you probably think who cares...well...

I don't travel well when it is raining, much less storming. I make myself and Mark a nervous wreck!

I am glad I got the rest of the boxes packed today. I am also thankful that I am just trying to plan for travel that is suppose to fun and not trying to work around the storm because I have too. My grandparents lived at South Padre for 27 years and I know what it is like to HAVE to pack up and leave.

So stayed tuned for the latest travel plans and we are going to do this just one day at the time.

Who ever thought two people could collect so much stuff in 38'


  1. Whenever you leave, just be careful and stay safe!

    We'll keep the lights on for you.

  2. We care, we really do! :) Actually, I'm with you, why travel in the nasty weather if you don't have to?

    Stay safe.

  3. I certainly can understand your thinking. You are excited about taking delivery. Leaving early may just be a good bet. Just watch the weather closely. Travel safely, will be thinking of you.

  4. Have a safe and fun trip, rain or no rain, it will be so exciting for you!!
    We look forward to seeing photos!
    Enjoy every moment!
