Day One

After sixteen hours in the car driving through pouring rain all night long, we arrived in Picayune, Mississippi where it is in the 80's and very humid. After last weeks hurricane, you can see some damage to the surrounding area. But for the most part, things are starting to dry out.

Tomorrow, we'll drive the remaining hour to New Orleans where we have reserved a suit at the Andrew Jackson Hotel in the French Quarter. We'll spend the remainder of the weekend there before heading into South Texas where my best friend Jonathan moved to several years ago.

Hopefully, I'll have a better connection and be able to share some of the fun with you all.

Over and Very Out! Very tired of driving, that's true.
40mpg is very nice!

Sixteen hours! You deserve a rest after that. I hope you're having a good time.

I've never been very comfortable in the Deep South, but I've always loved the name "Picayune, Mississippi"!
