This morning (Day 35) tears were shed by the team as they had their Boo Hoo breakfast – their last one in Texas. NOT! We did have a beautiful sunrise this morning,
but Kim couldn’t wait to have “Texas in her rearview mirror”.
She was jumping for joy as she made it to the other side of the Sabine River and saw the Louisiana State sign – Bienvenue a Louisiane!
After a short lunch stop on the line – (at the Sabine River), the team crossed over into Louisiana and pedaled a few more miles to De Ridder.
With thunderstorms and rain predicted for tomorrow, the team has elected to stay in the Best Western and take a “break” day tomorrow. Guess we’ll be walkin around De Ridder, LA for awhile. Great dinner at Thai Basil, a short walk across the Walmart parking lot and we were there.
Side note – the motorists have been extra kind and cautious with our riders!
