Red Stick

We are in Baton Rouge. It's a zoo here, and we had trouble finding parking last night, so we spent the night in a church parking lot. We'll move this morning before anyone gets here, and sort out a more permanent parking arrangement later today.


  1. What is "Red Stick"?

  2. Well, find a stick, paint it red! Voila! A Red Stick. Laugh.

  3. Red = Rouge
    Stick = Baton

    Baton Rouge = Stick Red (or Red Stick, as it's known by locals)

  4. Hope that you folks are doing well. Deb and I and the Bluebird have been on the road for about 3 weeks, first to Louisiana to work Gustav and then on to Texas to work Ike. Looks like we'll be in Houston for some time. Perhaps we'll run across each other. I was tryng to find your backchannel email but, alas, couldn't find it and figured that we'd go ahead and post publicly.

    Keep up the good work!

  5. I'm enjoying your website and blog. My mom gave me a family membership to 1000 trails. For now I'm just renting trailers when I need them.

    Your Odyssey is very impresive. You both must have a lot of mechanical skills to keep it running.

    Keep up the great stories as you continue your journey.
