Joel, a long time 14degrees Blog reader and ex-coworker from Japan just posted a comment saying that my journal inspires. I am glad that someone is. I certainly wasn’t today. A massive 30 mile detour to get around the US190 bridge that crosses the Atchafalaya Basin was the name of the game today. I felt uninspired and tired for the whole day. Ugh.
The Morganza Spillway was nice enough.
And I got up to 2,000 miles on my GPS unit.
As you can see from the data at the beginning of this journal entry, there is actually another 200-odd miles that are not on the GPS unit. These are miles that were not recorded due to me not having a GPS unit right at the beginning of the skateboard leg of the journey in Switzerland. There are also some miles not recorded due to batteries running out.
Being Sunday, I had to camp at the ferry landing on the other side of Melville. The ferry doesn’t run on Sundays. Or Saturdays.
