Our last day of travel until we reach our first warm destination.  Today we hope to make it to Magnolia Beach.  It is a long haul but we are used to long drives now.  We will slow it down after this leg.

We headed down some pretty roads today.  There is lots of greenery along the road but the roads are a little narrow and treed in at times.  That is what you get for heading down some back type roads, but the reward is sometimes you see something no one else has spotted.

We were doing fine until we decided to take the I 10 for a short cut.  We moved along real well on the highway, but as we were getting off to get on the highway to Magnolia, things changed slightly.  We were stopped at a stop sign on the off ramp when we got a little bump from behind.  I looked back and a Semi truck had run into the back of the Jeep. 

He just caught the corner of the bumper but it ripped it off and broke the tail light.  We had to call the cops because it was a commercial vehicle that ran into us, and it took about 2 hours to get everything all done.  The jeep is still towable and drivable, so away we went.  We only had about 150 kms left to go to Magnolia.  We will deal with MPI later.

We arrived without further incident and chose our spot on the beach for the night.  Here is the view from our window tonight.

  1. Sorry about your jeep! I hope the insurance company doesn't give you any grief and that you can get the repairs done quickly. Glad that you finally made it to Magnolia Beach and can now settle down and relax for a while.
