What I want to do
For the monthly event for organizers, Dan took us out around Picayune. We mapped two sites, the Creosote Plant that has been deemed a superfund site; and a controversial sand drying site on Highway 11.
My attempt and results
tori, luc, coriander, diana, david, dan B, scott, stevie (and tbear) were out to flly the balloon. David, Scott, Coriander, Stevie, Diana, and Dan B sat around at the PJ's afterward to work in mapknitter. We even got stuck in a charming Picayune carnival parade! woo!
The first attempt flew over the neighborhood, the second attempt was from the north entrance.
sunny and calm, basically perfect weather.
Here are the Drive links
there were also Chorus Frogs north of the sand drying site, an indication that there's a bit of wetland nearby.
Questions and next steps
Dan's map of the Creosote Plant is here

Why I'm interested
I've heard about these sites from residents, but now i have a much better idea of what they are, and who might be affected by them, merely by situating them in a landscape.
