I so do hope you make it through Mobile and New Orleans and other places along I 10. Even venturing to US 90 when can to really see the country and people.
I'm off the bikes for a bit with with a separated shoulder but can give you good roads not to miss while coming though Louisiana if you get down towards the coast.
Really enjoying your take as to the country and roads your seeing.
