M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I

Josh and Rachel let us stay in their new home in Gulfport, MS. They moved to the area just over a year ago, interesting timing with hurricane Katrina lurking in the area...

Rachel is eight and a half months pregnant, and still allowed Josh to take off for the day with us. Thank you Rachel.

Josh and Rachel live just moments away from the Gulfport shore disaster area. The Gulfport area of Mississippi was hit hard last year from hurricane Katrina, real hard. The waterfront area is absolutely devastated. Josh took us in the morning to tour the disaster area. Once the waterfront was a bustling area with casinos, shops, beautiful houses filled with residents and tourists. Now all that remains is concrete foundation slabs where the houses once stood, clusters of FEMA trailers where the residents now live and cracked, split and shattered roads, trees and buildings. It’s chilling to stand in these areas and imagine the power of the storm that caused the devastation.

However, the area is being reborn. Houses are being rebuilt, casinos are being restored and the residents are courageously returning. People like Josh and Rachel are movin' in.

After touring the Mississippi shoreline Josh took us north to our 18th capital, Jackson, Mississippi. We made a quick stop at the capitol building and got some good jump shots with Josh.

The Big Easy

Josh’s loud Jeep took us next to the bumpy roads of Louisiana. We went to check out New Orleans before going to Louisiana’s capital Baton Rouge. Driving south into New Orleans was one of the best roads ever. The elevated highway stretches for about 40 miles through the Bayou. You pass over little houses, shops and other buildings scattered throughout the waterways. All the rust covered buildings below are boat access only and look like they are barely held together.

We arrived in New Orleans and met up with Russell and Ryan. Along with Josh, the five of us toured the sights of New Orleans’ French Quarter.

It was tempting on so many levels to stay in New Orleans for a few days, but we had to keep moving.

Baton Rouge, LA

After a few hours in New Orleans we promised we’d come back for more than an evening, then headed to Baton Rouge, our 19th capital.

The capitol building is impressive, it’s the tallest capitol building of all 50. But what’s even more impressive is Fiddy living up to a promise. In August 2004, at the Hacienda hotel in Santa Monica, CA Fiddy promised Retired Movie Star Dave Leroux that he would visit Baton Rouge, LA before his 25th birthday. A contract was made, signed and witnessed. Retired Movie Star Dave Leroux kept the contract in his wallet for years and constantly reminded Fiddy of the deal. Well, Fiddy turns 25 in March of 2007, and he can now safely say he has visited Baton Rouge. A man of his word.

Coincidentaly, it is illegal to make a false promise in Lousisiana. Looks like for once Fiddy isn't on the wrong side of the law.

A trail of crime across America #5

Within New Orleans city limits "Fancy Bike Riding" is prohibited. The only problem is Scotty, Josh, and Terry (who supplied the bike) only know one way to do things...fancy.
