New Orleans was hands down one of my favorite places we visited on this trip. Better than Disneyland. Yep, I just said that, and I mean it too. It was charming, richly historic, energetic, warm and welcoming.
During this portion of the trip we had a third passenger and that was Jason. I mentioned him before when I wrote about North Carolina. He's the type of person that will be himself in any situation, and we are so grateful, because he is an awesome person. We kidnapped him from North Carolina and drove him almost to his home in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We brought him to Austin, Texas and then made him walk home, because we are good friends. Just kidding. He took a plane so he could get back in time for school.
Let me tell you, the three of us had some good times along the way. Gallivanting around Bourbon street like ten year olds, pressed body to body in bars with cheering saints fans and eating jambalaya next to the Mississippi were all highlights.

Austin was the last tourist stop of our trip. Scott, Jason and I didn't get there until 11p.m. so we didn't get to see as much as we would have liked. I guess all this means is we'll just have to go back someday.
Scott and I slept in a Walmart parking lot the next night for the fourth and final time and then headed home to California from New Mexico. Just like that, the trip came to an end.
I'll be back next time with some more thoughts and a recap.
Thanks so much for joining us on our adventure!
