    Clouds coming in!

    I keep finding so many dimes and nickels and pennies (and the odd quarters) in the street that it makes me wonder if it’s officially illegal here in the US to pick ’em up once you’ve dropped them.
    I can honestly say by now that I’ve got a very trained eye for those coins in the roadside, and I mostly stop to pick them up. ‘Cos it all adds up and a free cup of coffee, is a free cup of coffee…

    Dramatic skies over Louisiana...

    Leaving New Orleans after 6 nights in that great city feels good. I feel totally at ease back on the bike. I don’t expect anything from myself other than riding and that alone gives me an enormous sense of well-being. And ride I do today. Unexpectedly, I end up cracking a century (so the bike people sometimes call it when you ride a 100 miles) and find a little spot for my tent behind a factory building right next to the railroad, in Oceans Springs, Mississippi.
