where did you sleep last night?

Well more updates on our sleeping locations. I don't know if people are interested, but i've keept up pretty well with documenting every night so I figured I would keep listing them.

Miss Lou's Bed and Breakfast in Kaplan, LA

We camped next to the locks on the intercoastal shipping canal near Calumet, LA. We were told to ask permission of the "Locksmith" to camp there. He said it was fine, but to watch out because it was gonna get real col'. When we told him we were from Chicago, he waved us off with a flick of his hands and told us to have a good time.

We stayed with Perry and Leb along with their two dogs Dixie and Tinker in Houma. We had a great time hanging out with these guys. They have an awesome house they built from salvaged 100 year old cypress wood. We set up temporary camp on the floor of the office.

Last night and tonight we are staying with Bill and Erin in New Orleans. They have an amazing 102 year old house which they are in the process of renevating. Each bedroom has a coal fireplace as well as the bathroom!

It was nice to have you stay with us. All you other cycle tourists out there are welcome here too. Just don't mind the dust from the rennovations!
