Louisiana has mosquitoes, snakes, fleas, chiggers, biting flies, stagnant water and alligators. Did I mention mosuitoes? Oh yeah, don't forget HUMIDITY with 67 days of over 100 degrees last year.
Y'all Come!!

PS- It's why I go to Arkansas and OK -

But are there any negatives?

NH defends LA.

This is our first time in LA not counting going to New Orleans on an earlier trip.

We have now spent two days in New Iberia and love the area. I have not been bitten by a fly, mosquito or chigger.

Today we began with a trip to Avery Island home of Tabasco, followed by a visit to the countries oldest rice mill, then lunch at Duffy's dinner splitting spicy Corn and Shrimp Chowder, perfectly fried Shrimp and Sweet Potato Fries and a Frozen Lemonade (slush like) at a table with 4 kinds of Tabasco sauce and a bottle of Tobasco' spicy Ketchup......

We followed that off with a trip to Weeks Island through sugar cane fields and march reaching a gulf of working oil wells, salt mines and shrimp boats. I love it that here people produce things and finally to Cypremort Point State Park.

We were admitted to the park for free because we were over 62 and camping is half price with a Golden Eagle Pass, pretty nice of LA.

Downtown New Iberia is enchanting...we like it here.

One of the neatest parts of long term travel is no destination, finding spots like this that make you nwant to stay.

Norm and Ginny-
Yeah, it is a great place to visit in the winter or spring (if you miss the rains). I agree also with you on the food. It is GREAT!
I don't think the trip would be nearly as good in July/August!

I've live in Louisiana for 42 years and never been to New Orleans. I like going north when I leave town. Arkansas has cold-clear running streams (even in the summer) in the Ouachita National Forest where I camp.

(It was supposed to be a little tongue-in-cheek).

I suspected you were kidding, afterall you live here.

We usually miss the bugs people complain about because we're usually traveling in the winter and home in the summer, though not this year.

Unfortunately coastal NH has mosquitos but fortunately thay spray weekly in the Summer.

I assume Arkansas has spring sourced waterways like MO and FL, very nice

Thanks for the response....

I'm also a native Californian and proud of it, I just don't like what's been done to our Golden State.

Now I have to say I was in Michigan and travelled all around and didn't see any mountains. Could they have been those knolls and rises I went up over. I just did a search and found that the highest elevation is some 1,900 ft., just under my elevation here as I write. Any way, I guess missed it. Also, I guess I'm just spoiled with our Sierra Navada's. The highest pass through them is Tioga which reaches 11,952ft and the lowest appears to be about 5600ft. So these are definitely mountains.

What we also have is the highest point in the contiguous states...Mt. Whitney at 14,494ft with the lowest point in the states being Bad Water in Death Valley at -282ft. They are barely 80 miles apart as the crow flies, or was that a California Condor!!

Then beautiful Yosemite National Park. The wonderful breathtaking ocean on the Monterey Peninsula. Our indescribable Redwoods National Park as well as Sequoia National Park. I could go on but you get the gist.

I'm not sure what we lack here in California.

I live in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. It's nice here.

If I say more, I will be in serious trouble!

I was in California and didn't see any real lakes. Just a few ponds, compared with Lake Michigan.

no michigan doesn't have huge ranges. but we do have the iron mountains in the upper peninsila.
and some great recesional moranes left over from the glaciers.....which by the way melted before we got around to causing global warming....lol.


anyway,,,this has been a great thread and should encourage all to go see other states.

if you are going to stay somewhere for awhile, look into the park host program. free camping!

Missouri has its state parks. Lots of them. Beautiful and interesting. The camping prices are very reasonable and they are not crowded. Come and stay for a while.

I can give a testimony about Missouri. I haven't camped there yet but I just drove through it. It has GREAT roads (that means a lot to me). Is a very clean state. Rolling hills. It's a beautiful state!
