Days 60 to 62 - On to Dallas and Old Friends

Day 60.  We departed Memphis mid-morning for the six hour drive to Dallas/Fort Worth. A major thunderstorm hit about halfway and we were forced to slow to a crawl in order to the see the road.  The drive across Arkansas and halfway across Texas was uneventful.  The traffic in Dallas was amazing!  We settled into a really nice RV park outside of Arlington for two days.

Day 61.  We slept in a bit and then did some shopping in anticipation of Rick and Susy's visit  The kids left Houston very early for the four hour drive to Dallas. Today is a special day.  We will visit our long time friends Bailey and Lou.  We have been friends for over 35 years and they are two of Rick's favorite "uncles."

Early this afternoon we headed over to their place where we enjoyed a grand reunion for several hours before getting a nice dinner at a local haunt.  What a grand time seeing old friends.  They loved seeing Rick had been about 15 years, and in meeting Susy for the first time.

Rick and Susy stayed the night with us in the camper.  In the morning we had a traditional Alaskan Leopard breakfast before heading out toward San Antonio.
