Photo of the Week #4

August 29, 2005 – Hurricane Katrina

September 17, 2005 – Hurricane Rita

Twelve and a half years ago, these two storms gave New Orleans a double-punch of hurricane winds and water.

In December, 2012, this photo was taken. What happened to the folks who lived in this house? Where are they now? Will this house be rebuilt or torn down or simply decay in its abandoned state?

Just one block from the levee, surely it was inundated. More than a few times. It’s a miracle it still stands at all.

Such were some of the sights seen on the Voyage of the Tramper.

Photo of the Week #3 – CRITTER CAM!

David discovered this critter in the 4Runner (the 4Runner would soon be christened ‘Marfa’), hanging out while he worked on the body and engine. He couldn’t smash her, so he gently scooped her up (with a piece of paper!) and escorted her outside.
