Interestingly, she'd stumbled across some stuff about the Houmas House and wanted to add it to the agenda.
Weather? A normal high and low of 67 and 48 degrees? Ha! We may not even bring the electrics! (He writes, on a "mild" Chicago day of 38 degrees.)
We are working with a restricted time slot; a few days later is Mardi Gras and the prices double. January, on the other hand, is said to be the rainy month. Later into March, time off will be scarce.
We expect to arrive on the 16th, pick up the rentals first thing on the 17th, and head back home on the 19th.
In general, I was figuring one day to go south-ish, one for the west, and a third in reserve or for NOLA. Weather always rules, of course.
I'm trying to talk myself into liking the Tracer 900 I've rented. Won't be easy. I know I was underwhelmed by the 900 GT I rode in a factory demo day, and hated the high seat.
Must be getting old.
