Pearl River

What a wonderful evening! Camped in Slidell, Lousiana at the Pearl River WMA. Someone I haven’t seen since high school drove 50 miles out from New Orleans just to see me.  Charisse Kelley, thanks for that fine mess of boudin! My tummy was happy happy happy!

We had not just a few laughs talking about Del Valle High School and old friends. It occurred to me only after she left that we didn’t take a single picture. Let’s suffice it to say she has aged better than I…

Running the generator a bit this morning to charge up the batteries; then my next stop will be be a major milestone. I’ll be at the at the farthest point from Alaska of the entire trip, the Escambia River WMA in the Florida panhandle. I have never actually spent the night in the state of Florida… So I’ll finally get to check that box, and then start making my way toward New York.
