I spent a couple of months in Summerdale just relaxing and waiting for the weather to change. The time there was a lot of fun and quite relaxing but it was time to move on.
Mardi Gras was an event that I always wanted to attend so I decided to attend this year. Slidell would be a great place to stay because to is close enough to New Orleans to be able to get in and out of the city easily.
The last time I stayed in Slidell, we had several familys of ducks making their home in the pond behind the RV Parking area. On this visit, they were all gone except one big bossy duck. He was such a pain in the A** that we named him Hemorrhoid.
Before Mardi Gras, I toured the NASA Stennis Space Center which was close to Slidell.
During my stay in Slidell, I went down to New Orleans 4 times and through the Mardi Gras three week Carnival saw seven different Parades. The expense of the hundreds of floats, costumes, beads and associated items costs each member of a Krew on a float several thousand dollars.
Elks Lodges: 22, Escapee Parks: 7, Public RV Parks: 9, National parks: 20, Major Ships: 5, Forts: 15
Expenses: 11 months on the road with an average of $1863 per month.
