Living on the Road

with Jim and Gayle

April, 2006

We attended a Midsouth Foretravel Chapter rally in Vidalia, LA., just across the Mississippi River from Natchez, Ms.

There were 55 Foretravels at the rally.  It was great to see old friends and to meet new ones.


The RV park was on the bank of the Mississippi River.  The barge traffic went on 24/7 and it was noisy!

From Vidalia, we went to Robertsdale, Alabama.  We spent a week simply "hanging out".  We then went to Lafayette, LA.  On our way, we drove through the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  We visited Pass Christian, where we had visited friends in the past.  Pictures cannot begin to tell the story.  It's GONE!  We now better understand why they moved away.

In Lafayette, we visited our wonderful friends, George and Barbara.  On our first night there, Barbara fixed a fried chicken dinner for 19 of us (their family).  Our last night there, she made a fried shrimp dinner for 14 friends.  What a great cook!

George and Barbara took us to a "Cruisin' Cajun" rally.  The theme for the rally was crawfish.  One night, we ate crawfish Etouffee
.  The next day, an outfit brought in 2300 pounds of live crawfish which they cooked right there.

We feasted on them!
