Just as a suggestion of course, but unless you just want to drive into Houston before heading north to Livingstone, I would exit IH 10 at Schulengurg on US 77 towards LaGrange and then northeast on 159/237 to Round Top, east on 290 to Brenham (where you can visit the best little creamery in America...Blue Belle Ice Cream), west 0n 105 all the way to Livingston.

Understand, most of the secondary roads in Texas are superior to the major highways in other states.

Safe travels and do enjoy our great Texas BBQ every chance you get. Our Tex Mex Mexican food ain't half bad either.

Not west all the way to Livingston.....I'm turning around wanting to go back to Blue Belle I guess, continue east to Livingston.

Here's a tip for when you are at the launch.
Put away camera's, camcorders, etc.,. There are PLENTY of professional, commercial photo's available.
Just hold hands and watch the majestic takeoff and the accompaning roar. That is mind boggling. Then scream at the top of your voice. NOTHING like it!!
Have a good trip.

Kerry

I would second a lot of current suggestions!! Chumuckla Farmers Opry just NE of Pensacola is a great show and decent RV park. And the Pensacola museum is one of the best. The Battleship Alabama memorial just East of Mobile is good too. West of Gulf Shore is historic Fort Morgan, built in early 1800's. There is a ferry from there across to Dauphin Island and Mobile. And, if you have never been, it would be a shame to miss New Orleans. We are right now at Ponchartrain Landing RV park, about 15 min from the French Quarter with 3 shuttles daily provided to and from. The RV park is just a few years old, with gated security etc. It is in somewhat of an industrial area on a canal off Lake Ponchartrain, but pretty decent and good price. We definitely will return again.

We left Dec 12 from Wa state to do the same thing. After doing family Christmas in the Bay area (went down the Ore coast) and killing time in AZ. Met up with 5 other coaches from our WIT club in Benson/Tucson AZ to continue our journey. There was lots to see in Las Cruces, NM. White Sands, Masilla, etc. Then Carlsbad, NM. Currently at BBNP in TX. Next is San Antonio, then Corpus Christy, Galveston, Lk. Charles, LA, N.O., LA, Biloxi, Mobile, Topsail, and then on to FL. Going to FL state WIT rally then onto Titusville. Wave if you see our group. We are pretty much done with I 10 at this point.

When you get to Louisiana, don't forget to stop and try Cajun Cuisine in Louisiana. The best area is in the Lafayette vicinity. Enjoy!!!

I second GaryKD on his stops.
If you have the time and inclination (and the forecast is warm), you might duck south to Brownsville and S. Padre island. The KOA in Padre is one of our favorite parks (hot tub & pool are sheltered and Padre is a great "Walking town". Brownsville and the area have the "Confederate Air Force" since renamed to be politically correct, and a number of other attractions.
