It was a short hop through the north of Mississippi into Louisiana. We thought the roads in Mississippi were bad, but seems to improve slightly as we got closer to Louisiana. Once we crossed the border into Louisiana the road deteriorated so badly, we couldn't believe it - we also lost all cell service and satellite service. Weather was turning to stormy so we headed for east Texas staying at Tyler State Park, just east of Dallas. What a pleasant surprise - the park was fantastic. Rained much of the time but we were glad for the change in temps and humidity. Great walk around the lake and enjoyed just being off the highway. Site was large, not crowded (although the park was full), lots of green space.
