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. Read all about it here.) This is a highly contentious claim, and ...
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.
Nice drive in the back roads. We saw miles, and miles of sugar cane, and got to one spot where they were harvesting this stuff. Wow, big machines, lots of them, heavy-loaded trucks.
After a short 4 hour drive from Dallas we made it to our campsite in Louisiana. We are pretty central in Louisiana staying in a national park right on a lake.

We made it! We're all set up and relaxing! The truck pulled the camper like a dream. Sherry is a great driver! The weather is beautiful. We rode the whole way with the windows down and AC off! Debby hung a clothesline for the first time. Woo hoo! She also killed a scorpion for me in the camper, but that wasn't the scariest thing that's happened so far.... Earlier this afternoon, while driving with the windows down, I turned around ...
