Day 40: Heading Home.
Our group had split up after arrival to New Orleans, with some traveling on, and others traveling home. We completed our mission with the love and support of friends, family, and each other.
Always remember, if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doin’ Real Big.
Please keep checking out our blog for photo updates!
Days 38 & 39: Making our way to the Gulf
Keeping up with the style of the trip, we wanted to make it all the way to the southernmost point in Louisiana and see the gulf. Doin’ it REAL BIG. After our trip to the Gulf, we finished off the night with gelato, espresso, Mexican food, and skateboarding at night by the headlights of our van.
Day 37: NEW ORLEANS - 20 miles
We have arrived!
Day 36: Sugar Hill - New Orleans West Koa - 57.7 miles
Today we made it to the outskirts of the city. Another long rainy day left us quite tired as we rolled into camp, so we decided to skip out on cooking and go out for one of our last meals all together on the trip. We found a fantastic Japanese restaurant and ate TONS of food!
The kitchen manager was so impressed with our story that they sent out some deserts on the house. Tomorrow, we will have reached our destination. It has been a long time coming!
Day 35: Baton Rouge, LA - Sugar Hill RV - 57.9
As we left Baton Rouge, we said goodbye to our friend Max, who had been riding with us for a couple of days. He was greatly missed, I mean, how can you not miss a guy who makes chocolate fondue over the fire?!
Day 35: Baton Rouge, Louisiana - 53 miles
Due to a crazy day of flat tires and terrible weather, we didn’t arrive to the outskirts of Baton Rouge until dark. For our own safety, we decided to try and get a ride into the city, to avoid a very busy road on a Friday night. A super nice guy named Jonathan helped us out and gave us a ride all the way to our destination! How lucky were we!
We also had a warm and dry spot to stay. Dan’s cousin let all 7 of us invade her house! We ate lots of food and nerded out on youtube while trying to dry out for the evening. Thanks so much for your hospitality!
