The gang unites in the great city of New Orleans! See below for the multitude of shenanigans in which our friends Joche, Julia and Steve, and my sister Carmel and her husband/my bro-lo/El Cunado Edo joined us for over the course of a few wild days.
Miles walked: 7.5
Miles driven: 352
Waiting for the crew to arrive:
We took off for a tour of the famous swamps of the Louisiana Bayou:
Where we saw a whole bunch of gators:
And random infrastructure:
And beautiful scenery:
And vicious hogs:
Awesome group shot:
We even got to hold a baby gator!!
And then the boys had a little too bit much fun with this guy:
Rewarded ourselves with some good ole’ southern cuisine:
After which we embarked on a haunted walking tour:

A Julia on Julia Street!
