I took a little ride northwest of Baton Rouge last week. I'm exploring a possible route for a bicycle/camping trip. The route would follow the west bank of the Mississippi river north from Baton Rouge. I have never taken a camping trip on the bicycle and feel the need to plan, plan, plan. Motorcycle trips I'll take with little more than a destination and some vacation days. Go figure. Here is my bike parked in front of the Orange Grove Country Store. I don't think they are open anymore... The Angola Ferry landing is in the background. It serves mainly prison employees and there was no sign of it on a Saturday morning. Not bad looking for a bike that spent two weeks submerged waiting for NOLA to get pumped out after Katrina.... (more info on that here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=113849 ) Here I'm heading home following the levee road that parallels Hwy 77 to Ramah. Beautiful day out there... I stopped at the South Farm ATV area. Saw an alligator, but alas, no picture. The park looks like a nice place to ride but it has a 15 mph speed limit?! That's all till next time. Over 2000 miles on the bike since the rebuilding and it is still a favorite ride. Thanks for looking. W.
