|Keep moving towards Key West Florida. Storm damage is getting more common. Road closures (two of them) forced some re-routes.
A note to Pete in Beaumont TX (we met at the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona). I gave some consideration to call and see if the couch was available. At the point to think about stopping for the evening I was already far enough east that Beaumont would have been a backtrack. With a hostel in Lafayette I pressed on. Thank you for the offer!
