Day 1 on this trip's adventure

After getting all the last minute items aboard, we finally pulled out of the driveway at 9:00am. Not bad for us.

We headed down highway 59 from Livingston and found ourselves in the middle of highway construction half way through Houston. After getting through Houston the traffic on highway 59 south was moderate however the sky clouded over and a fairly strong wind picked up. Unfortunately we were driving right into it which made the SunSeeker work a little harder.

A Class C motorhome is definately not a Class A in terms of power and handling. Driving the SunSeeker fully loaded with the Jeep on behind reminded me of fully loaded dump trucks I've driven in the past... But one gets used to everything and as long as the SunSeeker keeps going with no problems, I'm happy.

We traveled 261 miles today, most of it into the wind and decided to stop about 3:30 at a Walmart in the town of Beeville. (Sounds like something out of a Dr. Seuss book) The pups continue to be first class travelers and Leo had to show off when we were getting fuel, pretending to be the driver while sitting in the front seat. A lady getting gas at the next pump was so impressed she had to take his picture.
