Miles Traveled Today: 526
Weather: 88-104, Clear Skies All Day
Route: Took I-20 90% of the way, and then a whole slew of small highways, too many to list, but finished off on highway 199.
Before hitting the road, I decided to take a few photos of my aunt and uncles 100 year old house (my 90 year old uncle was raised in the home, and moved back after his parents passed away).
Great ride today, although a long hot day. Clear skies all the way, and the temperature got as high as 104. 526 miles in that heat would typically drain me, but I felt great when I got to the campground.
Picked up 2 more states today, although my photo of the Welcome to Louisiana sign did not turn out too good.
Here are a few shots of my home away from home this evening.
No one tried to kill me today, so once again I find it appropriate to thank my Lord and Savior for keeping me on top of Sweet Baby JIL.
Tomorrow I’m headed for New Mexico.
