What is transcontinental travel?

When Lewis and Clark where appointed to explore the Louisiana Purchase they made Transcontinental Travel possible, but what exactly is that?

Transcontinental Travel is just what it says. It is being able to travel right across a continent. A good example is Europe where you can be in Western Turkey and then drive East and be in Asia very shortly. You can also drive right across a continent like Europe or even North America. There are millions of miles of paved roads today that allows us to be able to do this.

What’s that music/YouTube video?

There’s this music video that starts out in Louisiana i think and goes in various places around the world? It’s a rather old song and it’s done by one guy recording the overlapping singing/playing of various instruments.

Places the guy goes: liousana, navajo reservation, France, sand Amsterdam.

"Burn the House Down" by Harry Blanchet it sounds like to me.

 Good Morning NOLA!  I’m thinking it’s going to be another great day.  No rain in the forecast for today. Just a little cloudy with our high near the eighty degree mark.  There will be a few isolated thunderstorms in the evening on Thursday but should move out before the weekend parades get here.  Our overnight lows will be in the sixties.  All in all we really can’t complain.  Next week may see us back in the sixties for our daytime temps which is a little more like our usual for this time of year.  What a great Mardi Gras outlook.  I am really enjoying my time by getting out and about and soaking up some vitiamin D.  Even the evenings are wonderful so make the most of this weather. I had a nice evening with friends over at the House Of Blues listening to My Graveyard Jaw and watching a screening of The Cure for the Crash, a feature film by Brian Paul.  You should check both out if you have a chance.  So get up, get moving and I’ll see you in NOLA!

Good Morning NOLA!   Wow, what a night last night .  That was some really rough weather for some of the area.  The worst should move out by this afternoon leaving us with a little cooler temps. We have  fifty percent chance of isolated thunderstorm in the forecast today but now our chanceshave decreased for the next few days.   The forecast is showing more rain forlater in the week too. It is only suppose to be isolated thunder storms but be prepared.  I will have the umbrella at the ready but there is plenty of cover in the Quarter.  What’s a little rain after all? The sun should make its appearance again just in time for the weekend. There will be lots going on as usual.  I am taking a break so I will not be at the 1850’s House Store this weekend but will be back on the Square the following weekend. So make plans to come out a get your personalized copies of “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!” and “IF I Were A French Quarter Rat”.  Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy! See y’all in NOLA!
