    Yeah, about that. We're on a very tight timeline on the way out there, going to visit my parents in their RV in Hammond tomorrow and then look around tomorrow and head to Florida on Saturday AM.

    The roads are pretty good down here actually. We drove i20 out of dfw into Shreveport (stopping in Marshall Texas for dinner) and stayed the night in Pineville LA at a really very nice hotel called the Country Inn and Suites. That is a 2.5 star hotel and is by far the best one of that caliber that I've ever stayed at.

    Right now we are stopped at the McDonald's on i10 between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. So far we have driven 514 miles and have used 24.2 gallons of gasoline so that makes (including the few times that we've speed for bathroom breaks, snacks and such) a total of 21.2 miles per gallon with an average speed of 53.2 miles per hour.

    I think we have half of the insects from the state of louisanna on the front facia and grill.

    actually went around Hammond. My folks are traveling around and they're staying in Hammond right now, and we met them in Downtown NO. We actually pulled into town and drove around looking for a place to park, they texted us where they were at and we drove there and met them.

    NOLA is a nice enough city, but not really my cup of tea. I'm a go camping and get away from it all type of guy, maybe when i was 21 I would have liked in down there.

    So, we're in Slidell, LA tonight and we'll be a short drive tomorrow AM to get to Pensacola.
