Tabasco

Let me jump to the Tabasco Tour.  I rode 30 minutes from Lafayette, Louisiana to Avery Island, home of Tabasco.  Yes, I did the self guided tour which is real interesting.  So interesting huh?  What’s so interesting about the Tabasco Factory tour? I’ll tell you by asking you a question:  What does Tabasco and Jack …

To L.A.

So it has become a reality — I left at 8am on Sunday morning, not exactly sure of what to expect.  Sure I had watched a ton of videos on YouTube.  I had bought what was needed to make it happen.  I roughly logged my trip out.  Ok, ready, lets go — enough of the …
