Ida is Meeting me in NOLA

A simple text message that Ida was planning a visit to NOLA. I was driving along minding my own business and enjoying the scenery (well not really enjoying the scenery...it is Texas), and I received a text message about Ida. Ok, what-ever. Deciding to keep moving forward (or East as it may be), I started thinking about my back-up plan. If Ida was insistent about meeting me in New Orleans, I would then head directly North toward home and unfortunately, not get to finish the trip as planned. This was not a pleasurable decision. I do miss everyone at home but am hopeful to be able to finish the trip and see the rest of my friends as planned.

On arrival to New Orleans, the news is good. It would seem that any fury that Ida was feeling (I can't imagine that I have done anything to piss her off), is slowly dissipating and she is changing path toward the Panhandle of Florida. Did she realize that I am going to be headed to Destin on Tuesday? She seems determined to meet with me! I was planning to leave NOLA on Tuesday and go to Destin to meet with Jen.

So to appease everyone at home and resign my position as a Hurricane chaser, I have altered my plans. I will now stay in NOLA an extra day and let Ida pass by me in Destin, the follow in her footsteps. I hope she doesn't get wind of my idea and change her plans!

I found (well, actually Lisa found it), the cutest little guest house here in NOLA. It's great....walking distance to the Quarter and a mere 2 blocks to one of my favorite restaurants; Port of Call!

Although tired from about 11 hours on the road yesterday, I forced myself to go out for a little while. Did I mention that I LOVE IT HERE! Met a guy; Branden from a small town about 45 mins north of here. He was great conversation over a drink, then I headed back to the room for some much needed rest.

Airplane Aaron is trying to decide if he is going to meet me here for a couple of nights....should be a fun time!

I'll post more later.

I colored my hair so hopefully Ida won't recognize me now!!!
