Professional Cat Confuser
I left at 0100 from Jax but I had planned a BBG at the same time. Didn't worry about Louisiana, but planned my ride with arrival in the Houston region by 1100 local time. It worked out successfully.
I spent years getting up at 2-3am, so I don't struggle with getting an early start. I just didn't know what other people have experienced about hitting the two regions in question at certain times of day.
