It is day 2 of our journey to Chigao last night we stated at a roadside RV Park just across the texas state line, Mandeville Ar. A roadside Rv Park a field away from the Flying J. The ac ran all night burying the noise of traffic and trains. It was close to qoo F when we arrived so we went for a swim leaving the AC to cool the nest dowm.
