There isn't a lot in the state campground department near I20 West, so I'm winging it. A weird kind of fun.

I don't think Poverty is the by-word here.
|Why I stayed on the interstate|
There is a website that tells where free camping places (or rather, parking places that allow rv's) might be found, all over the US. One was the El Dorado Casino, in Shreveport. It sounded a lot more interesting than a WalMart parking lot and hey, where can you feel safer?
The woman I talked to said they had room, so there I was. A super nice guy running the valet service said I was really supposed to be across the street in parking there 'but I'm the supervisor and you're fine right where you are, I'll keep an eye on you.' Wow, Casino guy, thanks!!
|I had my own little park on the river! It was wonderfully bizarre.|
|This place is huge|
|AND!! a bridge to look at|
|I'm standing in the side parking lot of the casino; the bridge starts right there|
|The covered entrance roof|
|Lots of lights and color changes and...what is this?|
|Sweet night lights.|
|Down the way from my parking spot|
|This fountain was making water music in the night|
|Terrible photo but the battery died before I could use my flash on it.|
This is only a small section of it.
Here at the Texas Welcome Center, charging my camera battery and using the free wi-fi, planning out the next section of the trip. The blue road, Highway 80, isn't such a great road and Dallas is the next big object in my way to get around with the least white knuckle grip.
See you on the other side!
Have a work it Wednesday! Do something warrior-like (in the brave way).
