After Vicksburg was the town of Natchez, Mississippi where we had to pull over to refill our fuel for the 130 mile void to Baton Rouge. As we pulled ashore, a young man waved me down and said he saw us from the bridge. With mainly barges using this portion of the river, a barrel raft sticks out like a sore thumb, and he had to check it out. Sam, as it turns out, was an awesome guy to meet and works for the Natchez Democrat, the local paper. Sam took some photos and information about our journey, then helped us get fuel and oil. Thanks man, that was a huge help. On our way to Baton Rouge woo-hoo!
Stormed all day, though only rained for a two hours.
Sunrise, dramatic and regular.
Birds in trees at dawn this morning.
Major Cities to go: Baton Rouge & New Orleans
Countdown: 5 days left!
