After our Annual Business Meeting the James Smith’s, the Cooks, the Braly’s and the Kercher’s took off for New Orleans. We stopped for the night, September 27th, at River View RV Park, a really nice park, in Vidalia, Louisiana. We sat out in the afternoon and went to dinner at Rioux 61 as recommended by some of the Louisiana folks! We all had a great dinner and evening.
The next morning we headed down to New Orleans! We stayed at Ponchartrain Landing RV Park for three nights.
Some of the highlights include the sights and sounds of the French Quarter including Pat O’Brien’s, the WWII Museum (fantastic), beignets at Cafe Du Monde, the French market, dinner at Pascal’s Manale, dinner and entertainment at our campground and more!
I especially enjoyed having never been to New Orleans. It was a fun tag-a-long and today we all headed out for other places!
James and Gail Smith and Ted and Susan Kercher are heading to New Orleans after the General Meeting in Ruston, Louisiana. We leave Ruston on the 27th of September and stay somewhere in between and arrive in New Orleans on the 28th.
We are going to stay at Pontchartrain Landing, the address is 6001 France Road, New Orleans. Their phone number is 877-376-7850. It’s $61 per night (pull through full hook up site) and is paid in full at time of reservation. It is NONREFUNDABLE unless you pay a 10% trip cancellation charge. We are staying 3 nights, leaving on October 1st.
The campground is 12 minutes from the French Quarter and right on the water. They have a shuttle to town for $6 per day per person. There is a bar and grill on site with live music and BBQ and local cuisine.
This is a tag-a-long and there are lots of things to do in the area, but there will not be any planned activities arranged in advance. If you have nothing planned after the General Business, plan to join us in New Orleans!
Jim Hoover, your Wagon Master, has an update on some upcoming events.
As per my recent communication the tag along to Trader’s Village scheduled for June 1-2 has be canceled, or should I say postponed until a better time. This is something that I would still like to do, so with your input we will try to reschedule.
I recently put out information on a tag along back to Quartzsite for the RV show in 2020. We have four rigs signed up so far but I need to remind everyone that Black Rock RV park in Brenda AZ agreed to hold 8 sites until the end of May. That would be this coming Friday May 31. If you think that you might be interested call 928-927-4206 and tell them that you are with the Traveling Supremes. Just be aware that this is the slow time in Arizona RV parks so the office is only open from 8:00 – 12:00 Mon. thru Friday mountain time. To add to the confusion Arizona does not observe daylight savings time so this time of year mountain time and pacific time are the same. Anyway….try to call when the office is open.
Buena Vista, Chama, and Business Meeting
No changes at this time. I hope to see everyone in the mountains!
