Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler - Winter 2011

Martha travel blog
Winters last much too long in Chicagoland. There are only a few reliably warm areas we can drive to in the motor home in the winter - southern FL, southern TX, southern AZ and southern CA. Mexico is also a nice place to spend the winter, but such a long drive. While we are in FL we are spending a month in a large, activity filled campground that is similar to those we've enjoyed in TX for three times the price. Comparisons will be made...

But our main goal this winter is to attend Mardi Gras with a RV rally. The last time we made plans to do so, Hurricane Katrina cancelled those plans and altered the lives of New Orleans residents irrevocably. We'll hide from Old Man Winter in Florida until it's time for this flamboyant celebration and then let the good times roll!
