|Love the highway and lack of people|
|I was so surprised at the cotton fields..|
|Love this highway 82|
|Love this..here you go Deb!|
|and the fencing|
We had a beautiful drive heading towards Texarkana, Arkansas. We didn't plan on making it but that is where we where headed. Have to say the drive was incredible, great roads and little traffic.
We tried to hit Bonham Lake State Park outside the little town of Bonham. The Ranger was really nice but because it was spring break, no campsites. Beautiful area though. We moved on.
|Great picnic spot and you can stay 24 hours..|
|Just have to remember what town it's out of..|
|we're in the land of Dairy Queen!|
I got on my phone and looked for places to camp. I called the Walmart in Paris, TX and the woman said yes we could camp but we would have to camp out back with the trucks. No problem. We got there and it was someplace we didn't feel safe. We went ahead and left, got back on highway 82 and went on our way. The traffic really picked up, but nothing like Reno, Sacramento or I 40!
We went through a couple of more small towns and then just east of Detroit, TX we found a picnic area which allowed 24 hour camping (for rv's and trucks). So here we are, finally safe and sound. We watched the movie Ghosts of Girlfriends Past..really cute. We had a quick dinner and now it's time for bed.
|Our home for the night...5.6 miles out of Detroit TX|
on highway 82!
Long day and we're both tired, and with the Daylight Savings Time it's affecting us. I love the roads and the scenery. We would definitely come this way again. It's just too bad we can't find the truck stops or camping spots. It's Spring Break here in the south so that makes a huge difference on places being full or not. It's an adventure, that much we can say.
