The large rocking chair in Ruston, LA is still around. I found it about 15 minutes south of Ruston in Clay, LA, right next to Junktiques on Highway 167 south. It's a little rickety but still an awesome find!

Coming off the interstate, it seemed like it was a ways out of the way. After driving through an iffy neighborhood, found it in someone's front yard. The people who lived there kept looking at us suspiciously.

The chair was an awesome stop! We did have to drive through some neighborhoods that seemed a little scary, but it was well worth it!
