The Fastest Thunderbird Is Only An Hour Away

I levitated myself down from the 2nd floor to see this machine (Hell’s Angel) from New Orleans.  More in a moment.

The motorhome studio headed south on Hwy 71 to Grand Ecore, Louisiana.  Ecore in French, means “bluff”.

                Photo from the Grand Ecore bridge, while crossing the Red River.
The Grand Ecore Visitors Center is where I hung out with a pre-historic whale skull, that is between 5 & 10 million years old. It was discovered in the Red River.  You’ll learn a lot about this region of Louisiana at the Grand Ecore Visitors Center.
             It’s a great view of the Red River from atop the bluff at Grand Ecore.
My son, Justin, and I enjoyed a few hours exploring the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame & Northwest Louisiana Museum in Natchitoches (merely minutes from Grand Ecore)
Here’s the modified 1956 Thunderbird (Hell’s Angel) from New Orleans, that set land speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats. It is on display with all kinds of Louisiana sports and history memorabilia throughout the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame & Northwest Louisiana History Museum.

Of course, while in this region, we enjoyed some Natchitoches Meat Pies.  I have more photos & other information from this adventure, including more on Louisiana’s No Man’s Land, in the Journal on my website at
