Having a Low Key Week

Location: Vinton, LA (High 67, Low 53)


There’s not going to be a lot to blog about this week. We are relaxing in a little campground about ten miles or so from the Louisiana-Texas border only about a mile from I-10. We really don’t hear much road noise though, which is nice.



The campground has a nice stretch of pull through sites and seems to get quite a bit of overnight traffic. Every day that we’ve been here, between 2 pm and 6, the travelers start rolling in.




Yesterday our whole line filled up, and two or three additional rigs parked over on the other side. It’s 9:30 in the morning, and they’ve all left now but one.


In our last couple of stops, we’ve gone over our usual IMG_0892budget for eating out and doing touristy types of things. So we’re going to be just relaxing this week and letting our bank account catch up!

I’ve done a bit of research and it looks like it may not be too tough to resist that temptation, because this looks like a pretty small town – there’s not even a Walmart! We haven’t even left the campground yet, but will have to check out the town sometime soon to find a grocery store.

So that’s the scoop from Vinton, LA…we’ll be here until Friday, when we will be heading to our next stop in Galveston.


  1. Always a good idea to take a breather and let the bank account catch up. I rather enjoy those kinds of days.

  2. I'll be looking forward to your stop at Galveston. I don't have too much info on TX gulf coast and would like more. From what I've read, it seems much less crowded, more windy and not much to do. Could be a nice thing though ;-)
