Day 1100: Gustavacation It Is

9:00AM – Awake now (after a number of nocturnal interruptions, including a bad dream, a stubbed toe and an early morning phone call from Dad!).  Time for a quick breakfast, showers, load up the truck and then we’re on the road.  Anxiety and indigestion at all time high.  Love and luck to my friends who are staying, some of you whom I hugged and danced with last night and tried to convince to leave town.
9:30AM – Truck is loaded. Not enough coffee in the world to combat the physical and emotional exhaustion. Must not cry so soon. Speaking of coffee, the folks at Mojo Coffeehouse at the corner of Magazine & Race in the Lower Garden District are staying and will remain open as long as possible.
10:30AM – Just filed a report with the UK’s Independent. Writing it made me break down and flood Derick’s shoulders. “Let it all out,” he says. One final look around and we’re leaving. God, this is hard.

Please keep it here for updates from the road:

    I am glad you decided to leave. Hopefully, nothing will happen. Be safe, drive carefully.
