My wife's family lives in Naw'lins so we come twice a year. First off, the worst drivers I have ever seen and I have lived in both NY and Fla. I-10 is constant grid lock and accidents every mile or so....total cluster "F". Think another SB here would be laughable unless you repelled from a helicopter onto the Super Dome.Went to the French qtr for some food (which is great) and with the drunks,trannies, and freaks,it was pretty entertaining.Asheville has nothing on this place when we are talking bizarre people(to each his own...that's why I love Asheville).Saints flags every where and Brees's mug every where..even overheard tour guides saying "drew eats here and likes this restaurant" etc.Have my Panthers plate on my vehicle and love the stink eye's I get.Reporting from the huddle's favorite city and getting ready to fight my way out...the lone Panther fan here in town.
I was stationed in New Orleans for four years in the Coast Guard and enjoyed my time there, but I was ready to leave. Not a good place to raise a family unless you got the dough to send your kids to private school. And the Catholic Church runs just about damn near every private school there. Towards the end of my tour, I started spending more time in Baton Rouge than NOLA. Baton Rouge is a city I could live in.
I do miss the drive thru daquiri shops though....and the saltwater fishing down towards the Gulf.
