GREAT WEEKEND FOR DAYDREAMING

WOW.. a long weekend with an RV show to boot! We started our weekend by dining out after we both ended our workdays. During dinner we planned our weekend activities, which included and RV show, quick visits with the grandkids, dinner and movie and of course some relaxation.

Saturday moring we slept in until around 9AM, then sat around drinking coffee and having some breakfast. We then went to Walmart to pick up the grandkids some little valentine's gifts, then on to present them. After the visits, we headed to the RV show. It is held every year by Bayou Outdoor Sports Center and they only show a few RV brands that they sell, mostly Thor products. We did see a few that attracted us, the only close to full time fifth wheel was the Grand Junction, and it is a beauty, however has some faults, ie very little storage room. Here are a few pictures of our visit.



There were a few motorhomes in the show as you may can tell from the slideshow and we tended to migrate towards them more than the fifthwheels. Hmmm does this mean we are leaning towards a motorhome? Who knows? We still have a lot of time to think about it.

Well we left the show and headed for the movie theater. One thing we forgot about was the Mardi Gras parade this weekend. We had no desire to go to the thing, however in my effort to get us to the movie theater, I landed us slap dab in the middle of the traffic headed to the parade. It was bumper to bumper and we fought traffic for an hour and a half. That was long enough to make us miss our movie. Since we missed the movie, we headed to Ruby Tuesdays for dinner. After dinner we headed home as it was getting late for us (9PM) :)

We did finally get to the movies Sunday afternoon, after another visit to the RV show (yes we are RV show addicts) :) By the way, if you get a chance to see the movie "Taken", go for it, an excellent movie! Till we meet again.......... GBY

Hi Don & Cheryl,

We went to an RV show this weekend also, and were a little disappointed. Not much to look at for us. We're currently leaning toward toy haulers, for the flexibility of living space (not carrying any toys), and there were only 4 to see. We hope to see more when we go on our "factory tour" vacation in April! Good luck in your RV search! Tom, Marci & boys

yes, great slide show. We currently have a fifth wheel and I do love my home, but I do know that my furballs would have probably enjoyed our driving days better in a motorhome. They always seem to be a little on edge in the truck.
