Thanks to Stephen (former owner), Ed (tow driver extraordinaire) we released Scout from the bondage of storage and Ed drove her to Pasadena, TX avoiding all toll roads. I felt as if we had navigated all of Texas, but it was only Houston, traveling west to east.
Discount Hitches did a suburb install of my trailer hitch on the Jeep and got me out of there just in time for rush hour traffic navigating Houston, now traveling east to west.
Remember, I have never towed a vehicle, and Michelle recently reminded me of our trip to an Alaska labor convention where I backed a rented RV into a tree, destroying the rear window. It was my brilliant idea to rent an RV and save on hotel rooms. I hoped Michelle had forgotten, but she never forgets my blunders. That is what friends are for.
So today 11/22/16, I drove through rush hour Houston traffic with Scout in tow, to watch the sun set in the west and 100 more miles to drive. Breaking one of my rules — not driving at night.
Arriving at Leisure RV Resort on the San Marco river. As I crawl into my little bed, with the lights on and water hooked up. I hope there won’t be a problem about not being in my assigned space of 77, I am right next door in 76 — and it was dark! At least the space is a pull through. Backing-up will be for another day.
Because this adventure is about moving forward.
