I awoke at day break and broke camp. I waved to the camera and moseyed across the street to St. John the Evangelist. Mass was at 7 a.m.
After Mass I found myself in a predicament. The left tire to the jeep had gone flat upon my arrival to Plaquemine. I tried using a can of tire slime, but it didn’t work out to well. There were no places for miles that sold inner tubes.
I wandered over to Bridgestone and met Richard in the shop! He was able to patch the tube for me. It was pretty crazy watching him do it, he lit it on fire a few times!
The owner, Nick, gave me his card and told me to send him a note once I reach Los Angeles.
Storms set in. I sought shelter at a Popeye’s. Their chicken was really good! I used their wifi to update load pictures and journal entries, something I was behind on.
Lightening jolted across the sky, and it down poured off and on. Finally, around 2 p.m. the storm calmed.
I made my way to the Plaquemine ferry and hitched a ride across to Sunshine, LA.
The farm lands were beautiful. I strolled for a few miles taking in the scenery.
I was just a few miles outside Baton Rouge city limits and decided to call it a day. I put in a few calls to the Ebenezer Baptist church. I couldnt seem to get through. I set up my hammock along a river bank in rural Sunshine, LA. I fell asleep listening to the night life along the bayou.
