It’s impossible to answer the thousands of emails that we get each day on this blog, so on our day off, we thought that we would take a stab at some of your most frequently asked questions.
Are there any dogs on the trip? Al Poe, Wichita, KS
Yes, Al, there are two dogs riding cross-country in vehicles, not on bikes.
Everybody say “awwwww” at the same time. On the left is Cocoa Bean, who belongs to logistics manager Snowflake, and on the right is Bubba’s dog Buddy. Both are noisy, but very sweet.
Had any good Cajun food lately? Emeril Lagasse, New Orleans
Here’s some shots from a recent lunch. First, the oyster po’ boy.
It was full of plump, juicy oysters. Next, some jambalaya and a boudin ball.
What’s a boudin ball? It’s rice and pork rolled into a ball and fried, because all Cajun food is better when you fry it.
Are you still seeing trains? H. O. Lionel, New York
How about this orange caboose?
Most of the towns on our journey are only here because of the railroad, except for where we are here in St. Francisville, which exists because it was a port on the Mississippi.
We are back on the bike tomorrow for our final full day in Louisiana. Join us for another 80+ mile day!
