Good to see the plans are getting firmer. I always feel better with a plan, even tho we never follow it to the letter.
USA Hotel prices seem to have shot up, even since last year. The best deal ive found in Boston is 300pn. I'm checking daily but getting nowhere.

May I add another cocktail to your list? Ask for a Shark Attack in the Tropical Isle bar. (They make the best version). It's Vodka based.

Wow this sounds great! I think I want to do your exact holiday. You have put my own road trip planning to shame.

And your boys will be fine.

Really.

Mostly.

Sounds amazing, and so many different places to see! Fabulous!

My planning for NY is not going so well - it'll have to be at a much slower pace than normal and my planning is matching that

Hello, how was your trip ?
Yep, some of the prices are really steep. I remember saying to Andy I had bagged a fab deal in Dallas so I can't think what it must have been originally for me to think 400 for two nights was a fab deal . I think that was something like half price

I'm pleased with how the plan looks , we have stuff we want to do but apart from the pre booked places, we aren't under pressure . I am sure I will get all itinerary commando nearer the time though

Well, if you insist ... Shark Attack on the list

Hello , Thanks , I'm pleased with how NOLA looks. I'm looking forward to it.

Job hunt is painful I have just got some short term work to see me through July but the next big job is still eluding me. I'm enjoying the sunshine and staying positive

Hello my lovely , yes there are so many things I'm excited about, I can't pick the highlights. Although I think it could be Graceland, I've always wanted to go there.

Hello fellow road tripper

Hah, after so many false starts with this trip, I am pleased with the final version. I was sad about dropping the Smokies at first but I think New Orleans is a great replacement.

Omg, two teens on their own with two rowdy hounds. It's like Men Behaving Badly meets Dog Borstal. I don't really want to visualise it

Hello

I just read your pre trippy. O M G is all I can say.
Not surprised the planning is a bit slower !

Our trip was great. Thx for asking. The 1st week n NOLA was a bit 'restricted' as my daughter had a virus. She struggled on during the day - did 2 cemetary tours in the pouring rain but we only managed to go out once in the evenings. I was forced to drink a week's ration of cocktails in one evening & am told that I walked home diagonally, waving my Hurricane souvenir glasses & hugging all the doormen on the way. I of course, deny this. Since I don't remember, it clearly didn't happen.
Btw. Mardi Gras World is a good place to go if the weather's bad.

2nd week was Paradise aka Cape San Blas. Fl. I was thinking of doing a mini trip report since it's not a well known place (on the dibb) but my iPad photos aren't very good. Do you think people would still be interested?

Oh that's a shame, I hope she recovered quickly? Lol at the condensed cocktail drinking... I agree if you can't remember it, it didn't happen

Andy has a colleague in NOLA just now who says Cyclone Cindy is dumping rubbish weather on them, that's a shame too. Blimmin weather ... So I have noted Mardi Gras World as a rainy day alternative !

Yes , yes , please do mini trippie... People always like to hear about new places !
