The Love Sprockets are in Austin!

So there we were, resting our weary heads after 65 hazardous miles, at Sarah’s house in Opelousas. It was January 4th. Zoso had to sleep in the bathroom that night, because Sarah is allergic to dogs. He was deeply offended by this, and spent half the night dozing and intermittently giving one or two loud yips in protest. I eventually silenced him for the rest of the night after giving him a healthy bop on the nose.
The next morning it was quite a bit warmer, though still windy, and we knew a rainstorm was blowing in. We had until about noon to get to Eunice, LA, before we would be soaked by the downpour. I was feeling a bit woozy, and had difficulty packing, but I was determined to keep moving. We only had 23 miles to go that day.
We had a pleasant tailwind, and the roads further west were apparently maintained by a different district, because they were smooth and freshly paved. We were only about 8 miles away when the clouds opened up and began raining down on us.
