Apr 27, 2012 - Baton Rouge, LA

Baton Rouge was a touch and go; we visited the LSU campus which was very attractive with its large trees and Creole inspired architecture. Elaborate construction was underway not only on the Tiger Stadium but throughout the campus. A benefit run was in progress which added to the lively atmosphere along with a cool slogan posted around the campus, “Love Purple, Live Gold.”

Apr 3, 2012 - Baton Rouge, La.

Yesterday we left Lake Charles and drove 150 miles to Baton Rouge, La. We had planned to Dry Camp at a Casino but after driving through the city and finding myself blocked by construction I had two choices, Park unhook the car and back out of the construction or go the wrong way on a one way street. I choose the one and only correct thing to do I went the wrong way on the one way street and the look on the guys face sitting outside at the cafe was priceless. After all this fun we found the Cajun Country camp ground and checked in for 2...

Jan 9, 2012 - Henderson to Baton Rouge Louisiana

Another day on the road over to Baton Rouge. We got there in good time having traveled over miles and miles of swamp land. I swear, Louisiana is swamps, bogs, bayous, rivers, lakes and humidity. Not a great place for good hair days! Our RV park in Baton Rouge is right beside the Mississippi River, a place called Farr RV Campground and Equestrian Center. They apparently have lots of horse events here and accommodate rv'ers and the horses! We dropped the 5th wheel and drove into Baton Rouge to take in some of the sights. Managed to park the...

Nov 6, 2011 - John's Birthday & Baton Rouge, LA

Today is John's birthday. He phoned a classmate of ours, Anne, who shares the same birthday. He teases her about being his older sister, since she was born a few minutes before him, at the same hospital in Durham, NC. Anne has always been a special friend to both of us. ------ From Duson, we continued east on I-10 into Lafayette, LA, home of the University of Louisisana and the Ragin Cajuns. Boy, they take their football seriously. There was obviously a home game here yesterday. From there we traveled an I-10 bridge across swamp land that...

Oct 29, 2011 - Jackson To Baton Rouge

Driving through a crowded construction zone today - in the right lane - going the designated 50 miles an hour- the person next to me in the "fast" lane freaked at the concrete barrier on their left and veered into my lane. I had no choice but to make contact with the orange cone on my right. No damage just orange paint on my car. Really ticked me off! Will be in Baton Rouge until Monday afternoon. I planned a built in day of rest today and it's been nice to just chill out.

Sep 4, 2011 - Tropical Storm Lee, not my friend

Everyone I'm adding this entry from my IPhone. I am so tired and am waking up very early to head off to Orlando! That's right folks, it's time for the big show!! Don't get me wrong, Baton Rouge has been awesome, it always is. I love seeing my Aunt Pat and my cousin Leticia and her husband Michael. We are all very close so it means a lot to be able to spend a little time with him. It means so much to me I was willing to drive through the start of the storm. I was definitely ready for a Louisiana daiquiri once we got here. Those of you who...

Aug 1, 2011 - louisiana

Today was half touring and half driving back towards home. we left Pensacola in the morning and drove to Mobile Alabama. We toured the U.S.S. Alabama battleship and went on the WWII sub that was displayed there. We drove through a torrential downpour in Alabama after we left the memorial but it let up as we entered Mississippi. We went swimming in the ocean in Biloxi but it started to rain so we headed out. We made it as far as Baton Rouge. We are driving to San Antonio in the morning. It's about 550 miles so we won t be making any stops...

Apr 28, 2011 - Finally across TX

4-28 Thur. Another day without much excitement. Last night another episode with the fridge. It shut down last night at midnight. We have an appointment at Dixie’s RV in Hammond LA in the morning at 8:30. Hopefully we can get it repaired for good and be on the road by noon. We had a good day on the road covered a little over 300 miles. Found fuel for 3.79 which is really good. Got back on I-10 at Beaumont only to find trucks, trucks, trucks. We had just covered 900 miles across the back roads of Texas with very few trucks and not much...

Apr 21, 2011 - Baton Rouge, LA

We traveled from Corpus Christi to Baton Rouge today. It was a long trip, but we arrived mid afternoon. We had our first taste of boiled peanuts in Lousiana. Needless to say, they would not be something I would try again. Between the traffic and the food we decided that this would not be a place we would probably return to again. It took us 50 minutes to go one mile on I-10. We were headed to a Rural Life Museum (approx 10 miles away). Since the traffic was so slow, we would need to spend the night in the parking lot in order to get into...

Apr 20, 2011 - To Baton Rouge, LA

We travel north today. If we were purists, we would stay on the Great River Road. We are not. We want to cross Lake Pontchartrain on the causeway. Back in New Orleans, we have no trouble getting to the causeway. Crossing the causeway is much easier than crossing Mackinaw Bridge! It is an easy straight run. What do we see? Water. Okay, it is not scenic but we can say we have been there, done that! We take I12 west to Baton Rouge. We had not planned to stay in Baton Rouge but we have signed up for two nights. We have some “housekeeping” to...
