Jun 9, 2016 - Couchatta Resort and RV Park

Longest travel day of the trip. Left Alabama, heading to Louisiana. Drove 9 hours. I had not driven the truck with the 5 wheel until today. We traveled on the Natchez Trace Parkway for about 100 miles so I tried driving for about 45 minutes. Longest 45 minutes!! I was surprised how it felt towing something that big!! I did ok but was terrified that the trace was going to run out and I would be thrust into traffic with only 45 minutes of experience. Found a place to pull over to switch drivers!! We stayed at the RV park for 2 nights and...

Feb 22, 2016 - Lots Of Rain And A Little Gambling

Lots of rain today. It was very cozy inside the RV as we watched the rain fall. No golfing possible today. Instead we headed back to the casino and to the lunch buffet that was only 5.50 for everyone over 55 on Tuesday. For once it was good to be older!! We all agreed that the buffet was the best!! Each of us went our separate ways to gamble hoping to hit it big!!! I was on a mission to win back what I lost yesterday. I accomplished that, Bob not so much!!

Feb 22, 2016 - Couchatta Bound with Mike and Anne

Hit the road to Couchatta Casino and Resort. We met friends Mike and Anne Clayton in the Walmart parking lot near I10 East and formed our caravan of two as we headed to the RV Park at the casino in Kinder, Louisiana. We got settled in around 4:00 pm. After relaxing for a while, we headed over to the casino to find some good cajun food and hopefully win lots of money at the slots or whatever game of choice. We dined at Gumbeauxs and ordered a bucket of crawfish and other dishes and had ourselves a real feast. We couldn't believe we ate the...

Apr 9, 2014 - Trying Again

I posted a new entry to my trip journal earlier this week and for some reason the email was returned from all of my addresses as Undeliverable. Not sure what the problem is but supposedly Good Sams is trying to figure it out. Thought I would try one more time to send you all a notification. Please let me know if you DO receive this.

Apr 6, 2014 - God Bless Texas

It took us over a week, but we have finally left Texas in the rearview mirror and are now in Kinder, LA at a very nice RV park at Coushatta Casino. After the Coast to Coast park we left today in Cleveland, TX, which was all dirt roads, old chipped paved sites, hanging moss with little worms hanging down from that, signs that say “Don’t Feed the Alligators,” and lots of little no-seeum bugs, a million miles from anything, this is heaven. Full hookups, paved roads and level sites, pool, laundry, free donuts and coffee in the morning and a...

Mar 24, 2014 - Coushatta Casino

We stopped here for 4 days and tried our luck at the tables. No happy ending. Real nice campground and casino and Roy's catfish, just down the road, is fantastic. Danih and Bill drove over from Houston and spent Friday and Saturday with us and played golf and did some gambling. We met up with Dar and Charlie, from Palm Shadows the first night and Charlie and I spent lots of time in the poker room. They stayed next to us in the campground for three nights. Then they headed on north to Paragon Casino. The night there four groups from Merritt...

Feb 25, 2014 - Kinder, LA

2/25 Pulled out of Gulfport MS and headed west again. Raining most of the day off and on. We drive across LA on secondary roads, despite the weather it is a pretty nice drive. We get to see alot of southern LA. Some really long elavated roads over swamps (bayou?) and quite a bit of farmlands. Some really nice houses and some not so much. We go passed several fields packed full of thousands of old FEMA trailors, the ones they sent here after Katrina. We should have taken a pic but didn't. They are pretty small, better than a tent but still...

Oct 23, 2013 - Going West

One last drive down the Gulf Coast last night before leaving and heading west. What a beautiful sunset. This we will miss, but anxious to move on. Rosie has her new hot water tank and is ready to move on down road. Left Gulfport at 9:20 this AM via I10 to I12. Beautiful day, sunshine with a temp in the 60's and will reach the high 70's. Reached I12 at 10:15 and are now heading west. Blazing new trails for us. A lot of pines along this route reminding us of northern MI--no color changes though. 1St stop Hammond, LA Walmart for gas and...

Feb 24, 2013 - Kinder, LA

Our journey is taking us to a new state this trip. We are heading to Louisiana. Leaving Galveston and trying to avoid driving into Houston, we took a free ferry across the harbor inlet to Bolivar Peninsula. The Port of Galveston is the nation's only port where all facilities are coordinated under one management and the only major U.S. port facility not supported by public funds. Over 7,000 ships come in and out of this port annually so you can imagine a ferry crossing through all this activity, as well shrimpers and pleasure boats is no...

Dec 7, 2012 - Westward Ho

We're heading west and enjoying lots of sunshine and warm temps. We stopped and stayed 5 days at Coushatta Casino and Red Shoes RV Park in Kinder, Louisiana. It was a very nice RV park with full hookups, paved, level sites, shuttle service to the casino and only $20 a night. We didn't have much luck winning at the casino but had a good time trying. We always enjoy experiencing new things and at this stop we experienced 2 new things. The first was we watched a "roping" tournament. The casino had a very large enclosed arena on the property...

Nov 18, 2012 - Kinder, LA

Kinder is just a stopover before we get to Houston. We are staying at a casino, which like many other casinos offers an RV park because it is a way to get people into their casino. The real reason we are here is because it is very cheap and offers full hookups and a laundry, so we can watch some football and get some laundry done. The campground and the restaurants in the casino are a pleasant surprise. The campground is as good as any we have been at, although it appears to have an 'all business' aura. There are few trees in the campground...

Apr 6, 2012 - Kinder

On Sunday, November 20th we continued our travels West, stopping for a few nights at Wolf River RV Park outside Biloxi (yes we made a trip to the casinos), before arriving at Red Shoe RV Resort in Kinder, LA. We stopped here last year on our way back from Texas and had such a wonderful time that we thought it would be a great place to spend Thanksgiving. If you recall, the RV park is attached to the Coushatta Casino, and is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in. Lady Luck was with us and although we didn’t win any big amounts, our...
