Our ride through the bayou was so pretty. It was time to eat after all of the sun and sights. The smell of brackish and salt water was everywhere.

After dinner we had fun pitting the local cheap motels against each other for rates. We got some good deals.
I ate a power bar so... I'm having coffee.
Met the local PD: Kelly Scudgins Bruzeau a Deputy Sheriff at Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office. She was most helpful in finding a scenic route out of New Orleans. From here on out we rode and visited some amazing countryside.

We had ridden some long but beautiful highways. Moving with traffic, we'd made good time traveling. The temperature ranged about 30 degrees Fahrenheit from morning to mid-day and back to night. So it was coat, sweatshirt, t-shirt, sweatshirt, coat...
Third stop or so. Chris's Honda Shadow Aero goes about 100 miles before needing more fuel.

Thought I'd share this little trick for deep plugs and hemispherical heads. Can't remember which old dog taught me this but if you take an old fuel line you can thread the plugs without fear of dropping the plug or cross-threading. The hose gives just enough resistance to feel it go right.

Seriously... I am having focus issues. Big weekend coming. 6 projects unfinished and waiting for me, my work Mac is having issues, my 3D video intro is rendering strangely (perhaps I'm just a control freak) and I'm tired.
I hope I get the chance to ignore some of the things I worry about on this trip. I hope it stays simple. Just wind, exhaust and me. That's all I hope for. I totally need some me time. Just me with no thoughts. Sorta like wiping the gunk of the table. You know it'll be waiting later for you to pick up, but for now its on the floor and out of sight...
