Home Away From Home

Planning, Planning, Planning

Well, I think we have decided that our next trip will be a tour of the state of Louisiana.  We had earlier decided that we would initially try to tour an entire state or at least the highlights of one state for each trip.  Since our next trip will be in January we knew we had to head south.  With that determined I began to research tourism in Louisiana.  I have already spent hours on the computer visiting the various Louisiana sites and have learned a lot.  I finally realized though that I needed some help from someone with knowledge of the state so I quickly posted on two RV sites and immediately the suggestions began to roll in.

A week later and the research begins in earnest now.  Christmas is over and the departure date is looming so it’s time for plans to become more permanent.  I do wish we could just take off and randomly travel each day but we are definitely not seasoned enough for that.  We have often been called “fly by the seat of your pants folks” but when it comes to RV traveling we pretty much have a plan nailed down.

I’ve got the route to our first stop, Vidalia determined.  We’ll only be traveling a little more than 300 miles each day because I do want to be settled in our campground each day before dark.  I have found a couple of Corps of Engineer parks that are opened year around so hopefully we’ll be able to take advantage of those.
