Feb 18, 2007 - independence, Louisiana

This week found us visiting Avery Island, Louisiana which is the home of the Tabasco Hot Sauce factory. Every thing in the factory has tinted glass separating visitors from the workers which did not allow for good picture taking. Tabasco Hot Sauce is made from hot peppers, salt and vinegar. The salt they use is mined right here on the island and the peppers are grown here also. The peppers are harvested during the months of August - November. The same day the peppers are picked they are mixed with salt and mashed. Then they are put into...

Feb 2, 2007 - moved to Robert, Louisiana

We moved from Bay St. Louis to a town called Robert in Louisiana, near Hammond. This area is within an hour's drive of New Orleans and gets us closer to Natchez which is where we'll move to on Sunday or Monday. We're in a Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park - that's for our RV-ing friends who know what we're talking about!

We saw on TV last night that Hammond had over an inch of rain after we left. FLOOD! Oh my gosh,...

We found a good RV park, but since we are away from Texas now, there were not very many people in the park. One good thing - it was their off season, so the rates were low to stay there.

Jul 12, 2006 - Hammond, LA

Today was another travel day. From Florida, we passed through Alabama and Mississippi to get to tonight's stay at Hammond, Louisiana. Definitely heading west now, we moved out of Central time zone. Hear that everyone in Tri-Cities? We're now only TWO hours ahead! Dinner prep is always...er... interesting, to say the least. Counter space is very limited. The stove top is often used to suppliment, especially when a place is needed to set wet dishes after washing. The microwave serves as a bread box when not being used to cook. Consequently,...
