    We had to have our rv inspected, so I called a local rv park near our ranch where the rv is parked for recommendations. They directed us to a small shop in the small town. Driving by, I thought, “Where the heck will we park it?” But we just pulled into a side street and they did the inspection there. Gotta say, it was pretty cursory, but then again, it only cost seven bucks.

    In this same vein, I understand that if you run cheapo vodka thru a Brita filter, it’s indistinguishable from Grey Goose. Just sayin’…

    If you are in Baton Rouge, the is a restaurant called Parraines that is excellent. I had the drum fish and it was some of the best, freshest seafood I have ever had. DH had oysters and shrimp, which he said were also delicious. Also, in NOLA the World War II museum is excellent —  a great thing to do if the weather is inclement, or even if it’s not!

    Don’t know about parks, but do take a cemetery tour while you’re there. Lots of interesting history. And an airboat swamp tour is also a must. Lots of fun, especially if your guide is a crazy Cajun.

    Cute as can be, but you wouldn’t be able to sleep in!

    I think this is a great idea and will help the grandkids spot our RV if we ever take them on the road. I found this great site that sells both flags and telescoping poles. Prices are very reasonable — less than Camping World. Flags include Canada, USA, all the states, plus all kinds of others. http://www.polesandholders.com/home.php

    Carol again. I should add that our budget is somewhere between $20,000 and $40,000. This is based solely on what I have seen on the internet. Anything more than 40 will make us wince. Thanks again.
