Holy @#$%^, it's a bayou!

Somewhere after the Mississippi/Louisiana border, solid soil gives way beneath the highway and one begins to notice swampland on both sides. Then a few shoreside houses emerge. Then Bubba Gump's shrimp boat is all but floating beside you. Pretty much, you're driving on stilts at this point.

More stuff I wish I'd been able to photograph (from the road and elsewhere)

- The truck outside Ole Miss with the Dave Matthews sticker next to the "W" sticker

- The wedding party having their photos taken right in front of me at the the historic hotel lobby in New Orleans. (Yeah, it'd be rude to snap a few photos of my own. But wow do they look sharp.)

Soundtrack of the road...

At this point, it's all about adrenaline...

- The Replacements, "Bastards of the Young"

- That omnipresent Gwen Stefani/Akon song (woo-hoo, WOO-hoo)

Continue your New Orleans journey...
