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. Assuming there are no alligators it will be refreshing to swim in it because the humidity here is not very fun. We met our camp hosts at the campground and there were about as typical southerners as you could be. They had a sandwich size ziploc of chewing tobacco that I'm pretty sure they finished in about an hour. They ...

That's about it regarding the days here. Most of the action that's going on is about our plans in the Florida Keys. What to see...where to go...who's doing what...and I'm not involved. I just sit back and listen, kinda, to the phone calls and nod my head. Oh, I do smile and complain a bit, but to myself mostly.
So that's it for now. I've taken a few pictures of the area and such and will post them next time.
