Southern Louisiana satisfied all our wants. It was within a half day's drive from Austin, it was scenic with loads of history which I would enjoy, Lil Pat lived there for eight years and knew spots and had access to locals, and the Europeans could have access to a Wal Mart every day. I cannot understate how much Mo and Ed loved Wal Mart. Once Pat played a rap song that basically shouted 'WALLY WALLY WALLY WALLY WALLY WALLY WORLD. LET'S GO TO WALMART. LET'S GO TO WALMART' about four times a day the back of the van would erupt in chorus to this chant. With the metabolism of a professional rider, Ed could easily take down a fried chicken with sides family dinner. Same with Mo. Leaving WalMart with all that food, plus a gallon of juice, Advil, and wrist bandages for under $10? Better go to WalMart.
