I've arranged to meet my family at the last boat ramp before New Orleans. This should put me there by Saturday afternoon considering the daily afternoon storms. They're almost predictable now. My 2pm appointment today allowed for planning and time to set up a tarp, make lunch and repack some items. A nice break mid-day that i was completely ready for.

You should have stuck to motorcycles. Good thing your bypassing the last 100 miles. Probably lots of nasty stuff drifting downstream from all the flooding.

The flooding isn't really impacting me on the Mississippi. Much of this section is levied and there arent any major rivers flowing in after Baton Rouge. Much of the flooding was on drainages to Atchafalaya and Ponchatrain. Fortunately for me, not so good for the 40k homes damaged.

know that if you ever feel like you want to do the part to the Gulf, it will probably still be there. Not to pick-up crew. You may want to find the local distributor for http://febreze.com/en-us near that ramp. Fair winds and following seas Mike.

Following multiple cross-contitnetal journeys on two wheels, in June 2016 I will attempt to paddle the length of the Mississippi River from it's headwaters to the Gulf.
