19th March

I wake early and look out of the window at thick fog. I check the Weather Channel and see it’s not due to clear until midday and that Baton Rouge, 18 miles up the road, is forecast to be 83º with high humidity by 1400…:(

I decide to stay here another night – the room’s relatively cheap, it’s got free breakfast, as well as high speed internet access, and I need to go and buy some tools and things anyway. I ride through the thinning mist to Baton Rouge, to one of the temples to consumerism – a Sears store…



I’m here because Mike Belch has Emailed and recommended Sears’ ‘Craftsman’ range of tools to me, as being good value and carrying a lifetime guarantee.



Curse you, Mike Belch!



You sent me here knowing what would happen!:P – I get out having (only) spent $70 and replaced (in fact, considerably enhanced) the toolkit I had stolen…
