Gators!

Betty says this is the best place for swamp tours, which would be really fun, in our opinion. It will be warm enough in May that the gators will be active and moving.

Hey y'all,

We are not big into photography, but do snap shots here and there of new and unusual sights. Got a few today of the rice/crawfish fields, west of Abbeville, and were lucky enough to catch one of the "combines" out harvesting. (We weren't able to tour the fields yesterday, as hoped.)

French Quarter

Greetings from the Big Easy!

The French Quarter RV Resort is still as nice as remembered, and we are here amongst big rigs, truck campers, trailers, 5th weels and rental units, new & old.

A 15 minute walk took us to Jackson Square, and we took a few photos for everyone. (I'm getting better at this) There are always street musicians here. Yes, that is a child in a stroller next to the drummer and it is a statue on the bench.

artwork for tees, bags, etc.

Look what our very own Michael (Artstream) worked up for us! Each of the trailers marks areas we will visit. He will add dates a little later on.

Any feedback on design?

If you guys get down near Avery Island (Tabasco's home), there's a great State Park we found near New Iberia....Lake Fausse Point SP...
CRT - Louisiana State Parks Fees, Facilities and Activities

It's a bit out of the way, but great sites, friendly people as always in Cajun country!

We stayed there a couple of years ago, beautiful place...take some 'mos-keet-o' repellent if you're out hiking...

While visiting that part of LA, we didn't meet any 'strangers' - some of the friendliest people around, GREAT food, and don't forget to suck the heads off those 'succulent' crayfish...

When you get out to Avery Island, they're store has just about anything you could think of with the 'Tabasco' brand on it, even Tabasco Ice Cream!

Have a great time - wish we were there again...

We apparently all agree that this is the most beautiful, perfect design. It's official, then.

I've just read through this thread -- sounds like a fun time will be had by all. We've spent some time camping in Louisiana and have to say their state parks rate among our favorites and the people are certainly wonderful. We did Champagne's Swamp Tour last March and highly recommend it. Given the opportunity, we would go again. Bryan does an excellent job. Breaux Bridge was very fun and we had some great food there.

Let the good times roll!

countdown!

Hey ya'll!

12 weeks from today is our meet-up in Southern Illinois, heading out the next morning. Trees, shrubs and flowers will be in full bloom in the South and it will be fragrant and absolutely gorgeous down there.

We need to be thinking soon about reservations in Abbeville and New Orleans (sites at other stops are being held for us without reservations). Betty's RV Park in Abbeville is adults only but Hebert's Cajun RV Park is not, is directly across the road and still centrally located. We can use one or both, as needed.

We will do potluck/open house planning in April, and are hoping the many Forums members who have posted or PM'd about this trip (and any who have not but are or will be in the area) will be able to come by to visit and share a meal with us.

Who is going to be able to make this trip to beautiful, historic Louisiana?

Maggie

If time allows I would like to bring a dish and hang out a bit at the potluck...any musicians in the gang? I usually have my 'Katrina'd' acoustic somewhere in the truck and have been known to break it out when properly 'influenced' ;-) I'll gladly make any food/music/culture recommendations for the needy

Wonderful! We knew you were a musician and hoped you would come by---and offer to play for us! Stay tuned!

Maggie
