After an unpleasant experience no more than 5 minutes after we left the hotel,
we decided to get out of Louisiana as fast as possible.
We didn't want to give them any more of our money toward gas, lodging and food.
We felt very unwelcomed.
Thanks to all the locals that flashed their lights to us to show us the speed traps.
They were hidden everywhere!
The worst was the one waiting at the transition line from 65 to 55 mph.
Even though we were driving 52 in a 55 zone, we felt threatened.
So we left, instead of spending the 2 days in Louisiana we had planned.
Your loss Louisiana.
Today was pretty much a bust.
Nothing to see or do.
When we got off the highway in Texas,
the first road reminded us of home.
We were checking out Scottsville, TX
in honor of our Scottsville, KY home of Dollar General Store.
As you can see, it's pretty much a cross roads.
This was the only building and it was closed.
On down the road was the sign, but nothing thereafter.
Don't know where the 263 people were living.
Drove the southern route around Texarkana.
Headed toward Pine Bluff, Arkansas
Landed in Fordyce, Arkansas for the evening.
Follow along on our trip as I will try to post daily.
We had planned to go down to Baton Rouge to visit LSU.
