Today was a relatively uneventful day; we are heading back toward New Orleans and picking up a couple of NPS sites en route. Our first stop was Big Thicket National Preserve. This is the general area where, a few years ago, a Cornell University team declared that they had discovered a living Ivory Billed Woodpecker. (If you don't know that story--it's a great one.

Oh great. Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal just declared a state of emergency for this weekend for the hurricane headed to the coast. We better beat it outta here tomorrow, long pedal flat.

... on Booker (she was being too quiet)...and there she was, holding every dollar of our accumulated cash in her little hands WITH THE WINDOWS WIDE OPEN! I very calmly (so as not to startle her) asked her if she thought it was a good idea to be playing with the money with the windows down. She innocently looked up at me and said, "I'm just looking at all of the presidents faces". That was pretty scary and priceless at the same ...
