Walking to New Orleans--Our Mission

Hello all of you beautiful ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, mums and dads--this is Paul Leslie writing to you.  If you've gotten to this point it's because you have some interest in New Orleans and/or Mardi Gras...right??   I write this in the first hour of the last day of 2009vg.  In one month, singer-songwriter Wesley Cook and I are going to be walking 300+ miles from Panama City Beach, Florida to New Orleans, Louisiana. 

So we're a tad adventurous right?  Well, while we are at it we are going to try to help the people of the Lower Ninth Ward which was hit the hardest.  We're giving the money to an organization called the Make It Right Foundation.  You can donate to this very worthy cause by going to our website

Today I did a great interview with DJ Jeff Allen of the Amish Beach Party which airs on WLRA 88.1 FM in Illinois.  If you want to listen in it will be airing on Saturday.  For those in the Chicago area you can obviously listen on the radio--if not, you will be able to listen online! 

Anyhow, I will try to write in this thing everyday.  So keep the faith baby!
