I remember the Keg in Lake Charles and did my first drinking at the Lake Shore Club in Lake Arthur. What was the thing about the Purple Peacock in Opelousas? Did anyone go to the drag races? My Mother is a Vidrine from Ville Platte. I was raised in Welsh and spent a fair amount of time working in the rice fields, that will motivate you.

Aaaa-iiiiieeeeeee!! I remember the Keg in Lake Charles, and worked at Cardi's for a while when they were new. My family moved to Luling (just west of N'awlins) in 1980 and my parents are still there. I lived there, in Lake Chuck, Shreveport and Baton Rouge for about 13 years. I drove all over the southern part of the state doing video depositions for Kleinpeter Productions (yes, the dairy Kleinpeters). You sho' can pass a good time on the buy-o!

Saw some good bands at Tip's in N.O., did some great crabbing on the south side of the Gibbstown Bridge in Cameron Parish (and helped shoot a video at the Cameron Wildlife Refuge), spent many, many hours on the beach in Cameron Parish (and the lakefront in Lake Charles), trapped nutria and set trot lines for catfish in St. Charles Parish, ate strawberries in Ponchatoula, LOVED the Alligator Festival in Luling and the Catfish Festival in Des Allemands, watched the pirates take over the city and throw the mayor in the lake each year in Lake Charles, got sunburned at the mud derby and sand drags near Laplace, saw the bonfires on the levees in St. James ushering in Papa Noel, delivered pizza all over Lake Charles in my Triumph Spitfire, ate the BEST food EVER all over the place (Ralph and Kacoo's, Perkins FatBurger, Mosca's, Brennans, Deanies, Blue Moon Cafe, Les Families, Sal's Seafood, Alligator Hilton, The Chimes, etc.), and rode many miles of River Road on my motorcycle.

The one thing I am SO glad about was I left Lake Charles and then Shreveport just before they put the casinos in. In my opinion that really cheapens the whole area.

South Louisiana is SO rich in cultural heritage--music, food, people, joie de vivre, and more! There is such diversity of things to do there, and the people are delightful! Ah, mon chere, laissez les bon temps roulez!

We Are New To This Site. We Have A 1975 27" Overlander. We Have Had It For 2 Years. The Inside Is In Fantastic Shape, Considering That It Is 33 Years Old! We Took Out The Carpet The Previous Owner Had Installed. We Put In Hard Wood Flooring. Cream Colored Carpet Just Isn't Pet/kid Friendly. We Have Had To Replace The Sink Faucet, And A Few Other Small Things. We Would Love To Get Our Exterior Redone, We Have Alot Of Oxidation Damage.
We Live Above Baton Rouge, La. My Husband Is Disabled, At An Early Age. We Only Get To Camp When I Can Get Off Of Work, Which Thankfully Has Been Often Lately. We Have Been Staying Mostly In State Parks, Since We Get Camp For 1/2 Price With An America The Beautiful Access (disability) Pass From The National Park Service.
We Are Hoping To Find Support For Any "airstream" Problems We Have. We Broke One Of Our Pyramid Tail Lights And Have Had Problems Finding A Replacement. Vintage Trailer Supply Has A Listing, But Is Out Of Stock. Do You Have Any Suggestions Of Where Else To Look?
Also, We Have What We Are Assuming Is The Original Awning. It Is Not Waterproof. Was It Originally? What Can We Do About It? We Don't Know What We Can Apply That Won't Damage The Fabric.
Could Someone Please Help Us?

hi creel, you're in the right place. get busy with that 'search' feature (above right) and if you don't find it, you can try going to google and typing in your search words followed by 'site:airforums.com' (w/o the quotation marks) and it may work better. you can watch ebay for obscure lights and things. not sure about the awning issue, but a sailmaker might have some info on that. keep in touch..

years ago I used to work t the seven seas seafood restaurant in Lake charles. There was a boat place...seems like west= over the bridge...you would go over the bridge and go off or under south and there was a bait shop, and lots of boats and I wonder if there was a rv park down there...I tell my friends they havent really lived until they lived in La. One day would like to get back down there...they used to joke with me and say..'thibideax! thibideax, there's a hole in tha pee-row!

Hey Alumatube,
I was born and raised in Luling. I live in Willowdale. Where do your parents live and what are there names?

Well if you want to talk about REALLY going down the bayou....I think I have a heads up on that one. I am from a town called Cocodrie/Robinson Canal....if anyone followed where the Hurricane Gustave just ripped thorough that would be my home town. That would be basically right off of the Gulf Of Mexico. Now living way UP the bayou in Kentucky.
