Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park, Love Bugs & A Leaky Window

Today we headed south from St. Joseph to Robert, Louisiana. We would be staying at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park.

Here was our pull-thru site.

The park had ponds where you could paddleboat.

It had Yogi Bear who allowed Marlon to sniff his underarm.

It had 2 pools as well as a fountain area for kids or kids at heart.

Jellystone, as well as Shiloh, was also well-attended by the wonderful Love Bug.

The front of your car or rv will be plastered in love bugs if you drive during the day in Louisiana or Florida during May or September.

These bugs are mating by the force of the female (the bigger of the two) and travel hooked together. Their splat on your car will ruin your paint if not removed within a couple of days.

Our second day at Jellystone provided us with a huge downpour of rain for about 30 minutes and allowed us to note the RV's leaky window by the passenger seat first hand.

Luckily for us, Dixie RV Super Stores (largest RV dealer in Louisiana) was just 12 miles away. They made room in their schedule for us to come in and have our "loose window" diagnosed. After 3 hours at the service center, our window was fixed. We hope.

After delaying our day-trip to New Orleans one day because of a leaky window, we were ready to head for The Big Easy.
