First stop Canton, Ms.

We left this morning around 10:00.  Jim and Libby joined us just north of Lake Village, Ar.  Unfortunately they were having some engine problems.  Jim thought it was a new fuel filter he had installed and changed it out at our stop.  At first things seemed to be going ok but as he got down the road a ways and had to climb a hill, the problem on no power returned.  We stopped for the night in Canton, Ms. which is north of Jackson, Ms.  Jim is looking for a mobile diesel mechanic.  He is hoping its just bad diesel but he needs to get this fixed and sooner the better.

We are stopped at Movietime RV Park.  This is a Good Sam park and the rates are $26.95 a night with discount $24.08.  The park is full at this time, we got the last 2 spots.  When you are making an unscheduled stop you take what you can get.  We had hoped to stop at Goshen Springs RV resort but because of the recent bad weather, most of the rv park is underwater at this time.  The guys had hoped to get some fishing in today but again... you take what you get.

The plans for tomorrow are to get Jim's motorhome fixed and go from there.  Our bad luck for today was a rock hit the windshield and left a big nasty spider shaped crack.  Hopefully we can get that fixed while we are stopped.

Libbie and I actually cooked supper tonight.  Write that on the calendar, we don't do this often but we are going to try to on this trip.  We had tacos, refried beans with cheese on top, guacumole and egg custard pie!  It was nothing fancy but it sure was good.

  Later folks!
