Day 1: Toledo Bend, LA

Saturday morning at sun up we woke up to the loud sounds of bird calls, woodpeckers pecking and other creatures scurrying about the woods.

Fresh Starbucks coffee in the woods, oops... we forgot the cups

After breakfast, we unloaded the bikes and took off. It was in the low to mid 60s but very windy.

The winds were really blowing today

We explored some dirt roads on the Louisiana side and then headed out to San Augustine, TX to find a place to grab some lunch, many places near Toledo Bend were still closed for the season. To our surprise, we could only find one restaurant in town. The food was edible but nothing to write home about.

Lunch: Mike's Burger, my shrimp po' boy and our onion rings

Trying to get to the camp site before dark

An amazing sun set, we had to stop for some pictures

Dinner is served, chili and hot dogs

The night was cool and clear, the sky was dark and full of stars, the fire was warm and the marshmallows were sweet and gooey.
