Mar 25, 2014 - Duck Dynasty

We drove a big 167 miles today. Dicided to unhook and look around. The campground gives you the directions over to Duck Dynasty so we had to go see it. It is hard to believe that the factory is right in town. There is a field next to it so I guess they film in that field to make it look like they are out in the county. We did see Phil's grandson. He was folding tee shirts in the store. Pavillon Campground was another one we will put on our really good list.

Don't wake me up

Feb 11, 2013 - Cajun PawnStars & Duck Dynasty

I forgot to mention in yesterday's entry that on our way from Eunice to Alexandra we passed by many flooded fields with hundreds of small traps in them. It turns out these are commercial Crawfish farms . They also use the flooded fields to grow rice (seem to use rice with every meal) I kept expecting to see the 2 cranberry cocktail guys out in the fields. in Alexandria we drove to Silver Dollar Pawn shop, home to Cajun Pawn Stars in the morning . Met Jimmy ( big daddy) and Peggy(mama) DeRamus and brother Johnny , Jimmy's younger brother....

Oct 11, 2011 - Louisiana

We arrived in Louisiana on 10/11 and stayed in Lake D’Arbonne State Park. We like to try the state parks in each state that we visit. They are usually pretty nice and inexpensive even if they don’t usually have a full hook-up. However Louisiana really socks it to the traveler. We had to pay a $6.00 reservation fee even though we were walk-ins. So it ended up being more expensive than a commercial park with a full hook-up. Won’t stay in anymore Louisiana state parks on our travels.

Aug 22, 2010 - Passing through Louisiana

Pete & I have a map on the side of the 5th-wheel (which our good friends Phil & Bonnie gave us when we first started traveling) As we pass through the different states, we add them to our map. We still had to pass through Mississippi, Louisiana & Arkansas (not on our map yet). So we decided after we left Mississippi, we'd cut through Louisiana on our way to Arkansas. That took care of all three states in one swoop. Does that make sense or am I rambling ? LOL !

May 7, 2010 - Through Louisiana

I moved through Louisiana, stopping just long enough to play golf in West Monroe. I got there just as a local couple reached the first tee and they let me join up with them. It was a somewhat short course but had lots of challenges with water, sand and doglegs so it helped to have local knowledge of how to play different holes. This course, just like Oklahoma and Arkansas, had awful greens. It was like trying to stick a ball on concrete. Everywhere they tell me that it's the result of a hard winter and then before they could do the spring...

Tomorrow night we won't be staying near any restaurants, so we went out tonight.

Mar 23, 2008 - Leaving Alabama, through Mississippi and on to Louisiana

Sunday 23 March 2008 - Happy Easter Everyone! On the road again at 0930 hours. During the day we stopped twice at Alabama road side rests. Once for lunch and once for play time for Lucy. Alabama has very large, clean and inviting rest stops that include parking for the big rigs and RV's, spotless restrooms, and security. The guard approached us as we arrived each time and as soon as he noticed our dog was on a leash, continued on his way. They also stock maps and brochures noting areas of interest in the state. Oh, and one other thing...

Dec 3, 2007 - Meet RVcachers

Over the years I have been advised to create a blog, so here goes! A bit of background is in order...... I am Dianne and my dear hubby is Terry. We are fulltime RVers...what is that?....you ask? Fulltime RVers are those folk who choose to chuck it all and live life on the open road in some sort of recreational vehicle (RV). That can be anywhere from a truck camper, a popup trailer, a tear-drop to a 45' fifth wheel, a tiny van conversion to a million dollar Prevost motorhome. We chose a fifth wheel trailer. We both retired eight years ago,...

Jun 13, 2007 - somewhere in Louisiana, home of the world's best roads!

Alrighty! Finally getting all of our "tech" issues taken care of so that we can work on the travel blog! We're currently at a backwoods gas station deep in the heart of Louisiana, on our way to Orlando and the great mecca of Disneyworld (as well as having a much-needed family reunion - looking forward to spending some time with the extended family I haven't seen in ages! :) So we've actually only been RV owners for about 5 days now and this will be the maiden voyage! We've learned a lot of things in the last couple of days like, "Make a...

Mar 2, 2003 - Monroe

A rainy drive found us in Monroe, a town of about 50,000, and we were greeted right at the freeway exit by Phil's friend, John. He, thankfully, guided us to their lovely home, and the beginning of a great weekend visit with he and Nerissa. We loaded up our gear in the Suburban, and we were all off for "the cabin". Goodbye to the Rolling White House for a few days! What a neat place -- just what a cabin should be -- big fireplace, animal heads high on the walls, wood surrounding you everywhere, a big family kitchen -- very cozy, yet roomy,...
