On our way to Houston we bypassed the bad roads from Baton Rouge to LaFayette, that infamous section of I-10 that eats tires. The roughest section is actually from St. Charles to LaFayette, the rest is ok. We learned not to travel that section when fultiming. We found a great place to eat and camp taking this detour. Exit 51 out of Baton Rouge puts you on 421 to 190 which runs parallel to I-10 all the way to Beaumont,Tx. About 40 miles out of Beaumont you will run into a town called Kinder. They have a casino there with a nice campground. Very nice place to stay, eat, and win money. They have pink busses that shuttle you to the campground 24 hours.
Here we are entering the state

A lot of the time you are riding on bridges instead of actual roads which is kind of different. Notice we had just done a bug clean on the windshield.

Here's a shot of the back of the casino. The front entrance is a lot prettier. We should have walked around and taken a picture from the front but we were tired and the seafood buffet was getting ready to start. You know how that is after a long hard drive.

When in route to Houstin we always take the back road to Kinder. There is a great casino there to over night.

It also allows us to bypass that famous section of I 10 right around the Baton Rouge interchange that is so rough.

The last time we went thru the area they were redoing the back roads so I am sure they are really nice now. They come out in Beaumont,Tx, which is near where we are headed.
