New Orleans pilgrimage
We are in Mississippi as I write this and it is 5:55 AM Central Time. There are about 200 miles and change left to travel to New Orleans. It has been a very different trip in a 17-foot UHaul truck trailing a car than it was on a little 250cc Ninja motorcycle, light as a feather and free as a bird.
I've had chest pangs every time we've stopped for gas. As usual, I will be doing a tally of miles traveled and gallons consumed. It will be an interesting comparison.
We'll be in New Orleans this afternoon. Once things are unpacked a bit and I approach being settled in, I'll share some of the details. I bet you can't wait, Gentle Reader. I know I'm ready to write it.
