When on long road trips, I'm usually looking at the road or the scenery going by while talking with Carrie or listening to Music via my iPhone. I had gone down to New Orleans to surprise a couple of friends. All went well and we had a great time. On the morning of February 24th, I checked out of the Wyndham Hotel early so as to get a jump on the traffic since the "supreme madness" of Mardi Gras would be commencing later that day. I was awake and alert while driving and concentrating on the drive ahead of me. Not long after leaving the vicinity of Baton Rouge and going through the wetlands of Louisiana, I became aware of a presence.....in my car! In the peripheral vision of my right eye, I saw a young woman. She had long, wavy black hair and was wearing big, round sunglasses, kind of like the type that were in style back in the 1960's.

|When I looked right at her, she would disappear. She never looked at me, but only at the road ahead. She never said a word, even when I spoke to her. (Heh, talking to a ghost.) Instead of continuing on I-10, I took a right turn onto 96 in Beaumont and then a left on 105. From that point on, I never saw her again. I am left wondering who she was and why she chose to ride with me out of New Orleans in the middle of the night.
