Long day riding. Stayed off the Interstate Highway but was a great deal longer to get to my destination.
A hot day riding - no shade or cloud cover.
I was going to stop at Shreveport for a cold drink but circled the town and decided to head off to Alexandria via US 171 South (The Scenic Route - according to the HD Touring Guide).
Whilst it was probably far more scenic that the main Interstate Highway it did take me a ways South ...
... 160;Then I stopped for gas. I was the only car in a station full of pick-ups. Here is where I experienced my first hootin' and hollerin' from what I imagine are some upstanding young gentlemen in a very large truck. When I described my first Louisiana experiences to Mom, she replied, "Honey, You be in the south". I traversed most of Louisiana before some back-of-the-Prius camping at a boat launch in the middle ...
... provided communications back to Kathy who could then relay information to the mechanics. Kathy and I stayed with the bikes for security. Elizabeth and Janet had gone off in search of a hotel. The rooms were booked at many places and were very expensive but we Did finally find 3 affordable rooms.

... building with a lot of original fittings still inside showing of the wealth of the owners at the time. We almost didn't get on a tour of the house as the accent of the woman at the front desk was so strong we almost gave up asking her to repeat herself. But we got on a tour and with 20 minutes until we started I had time for a Mint Julip (delicious) and James had time for a full meal!
I'm not a quick or a big drinker, so being dehydrated ...
... because someone thought 5:30 a.m. was a good time to fly out. But instead of sleeping I will lay their with my thoughts running 90 miles an hour - is everything packed, did I get everything done at work that I should have, am I crazy for going away for two whole weeks? Can only hope that by the time the plane lands in Honolulu, I will be able to relax, leave all my worries behind and enjoy all that Hawaii has to offer.
