    I'll be in New Orleans tomorrow. Florida was straight...figuratively...and literally. Some of the backroads were cool though.

    Enjoying it day by day. Will reserve a proper write up for when the time comes.

    Went to the swap in search of alligators or crocodiles, whatever they're called. Didn't find them but had some amazing pictures of the beautiful marsh and swamp

    Arrived in Spring, TX and am expanding my advrider network!

    LA 82 was gorgeous leading into TX 82. Straight road but the marsh was scenic.

    Was pulled over for doing 90 in a 55...yikes. But I charmed him into letting me off with a warning. Uh winning? Or just damn lucky.

    Highlight of today wasn't even lime rock road...I got a free ride in an airplane to get steaks in llano! Turns out my host Zac is also from Maryland, went to the same school, did a 15K mile road trip around the US, and has his pilot's license! The world continues to introduce me to badass people
