Safely tucked into my room in Covington. LA…this has been an awesome day. From Baton Rouge, I drove west towards Texas until arriving in Crowley, Louisiana for our lunch stop. Crowley is the home of some terrific Great Racers (Ed Habetz and Tom Regan) and did they do it up right! With awesome crowds, a great welcoming committee, great music and a lunch offering food that I had never tried before (like crayfish, gumbo and jambalaya, the experience was truly one to remember. From Crowley, backtracking along I-10, I sent a text to friends who travelled that road with me before, stopping to have an incredible boating experience at the Atchafalaya Swamp, the largest wetland and swamp in the United States. I arrived in Covington, LA for the evening stop. Again, huge crowds, music, Cajun food and enthusiasm welcomed the Great Racers to an amazing venue. We lost a number of competitors today…hopefully they can get fixed and complete the final day in Mobile, Alabama tomorrow. The end is near. What an exhilarating experience to be able to be a part of the Hemming Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty!
