... of me, one dead and doing nothing on the road. Two cracked and very dead armadillos. Birds, cows, horses and goats. I passed may farms along the way today that I could see their livestock.
I just made it into Louisiana before the last downpour started. The hotel I booked into is a 'budget' Inn and my room looks like a 60's basement (dark paneling etc). Still it's cheap and dry.
Wonder if I'll get to New Orleans tomorrow?
