So, I leave in essentially two days, and I feel like I don’t have anything ready at all! My mom has been helping me a lot, but between my “last” appointments for my teeth and hair and immunizations and packing up everything for both trips and trying to get my bike geared up to go…..there just aren’t enough hours in the day!!! And now with Hurricane Katrina zooming in on New Orleans, I’m wondering if our bike route is going to have to change. We were planning on spending a few days there since neither of us had seen the city before, but I have a feeling that it may not be an option…..or at the very least, we’re going to have to expect something different!
