    When I finish working over there I was planning to take about a week (or a short week) in new orleans. The whole when thing is still a bit unclear though. :) Just know I'm leaving on wednesday.

    I live in Arlington, so could make a quick road trip. Only a few hours to CC.

    According to map, Arlington is a godawful long drive away!

    Not really. I've lived in DFW for years, and if we wanted to drive down to San Antonio or Corpus to visit family or something, we would, even if just for the weekend.

    This is Texas. Everything is a godawful drive away. We're used to it. Driving to Cali isn't much worse than going to the beach. Most people here would make that drive should paycheck allow.

    So the week in NOLA might be sometime between September 8-14? Sept 11 is my birthday; I'm always down for spending it in a fun place!

    Yep, I'm expecting it to be something like 8th to 13th . Got a flexible return flight, so might move it about depending on what happens.


    Will probably know more by friday once I actually get to the place and see what I'm supposed to do there.

    Man that's a 6 hour drive, one a single highway straight shot. That's nothing.

    Like was said before, this is Texas. I'm used to driving 4 hours just to go have fun, let alone visit people.

    Made it to texas. Alive and well!

    Working 12 hour days, and won't know if I get any days off until I get a day off. So preplanning stuff is difficult.  Leaving out of new orleans though, so def going there. :)

    Let's set a date for New Orleans! Need to bring @Ainia and @Atalkez over too. Gonna get wild. Make sure you bring: An oven mitt, your passport, and three coconuts. These are necessities. When you get free let me know @Rangor! I should be back in New Orleans roughly 5 days from now and will be taking vacation! Let's do this.

    Soooo Micaelis was talking a big game about New Orleans on an OOC clan, and I've never been there and have lots of Southwest points, and fuck it, so I think I might just go. (my flights are refundable if this doesn't happen.)

    edit: also rangor + atalkez et al. please don't boomerang me into telephone poles or anything

    I'm thinking September 12th can be the official day since it's a weekend. Usually Friday isn't as psycho as Saturday so it won't be so bad! So plan for that @Ulrike!

    New Orleans is so much fun. Wish I could go. Good music and good food is everywhere. We stayed on Bourbon Street in the Lafitte Guest House, which is far enough down it doesn't get drunks and close enough to Croissant d'Or to walk. Hope you have a great time!

    Coo, my flights coincide fairly well with that.
    I don't think I'll rent a car, unless it becomes necessary -- looks like cabs and public transport aren't too bad, from what I'm reading so far.

    The Marigny seems to be where hipster douchebags like me hang out, so I'm checkin' it out for crash places.
