  1. Towns in Louisiana and Texas

    I suggest Paris, Marshall, Athens (check out the fish hatchery there), Longview in Texas. A great drive is to hit Highway 80 at the Mississippi border with Louisiana and take that all the way into...

    Us 285

    Black Hills

    The weather there is a little trickey sometimes, so it will be good to check it out before you head out of the air conditioning each morning. I was there in June 2007. On the first day it was 110 on...

    Defrost

    Living in Louisiana means that this is almost always on. Especially early morning, late at night and during rain storms. I had that going full blast last night and it definitely helped. I'm going to...

    Auto Zone here I come

    Thanks for the suggestions I will look for those. One other thing. Do those work for the inside as well? Or do I need to find something else?

    Enterprise is a Hopeful

    I was able to rent from Enterprise when I was under 21, but that was through my insurance company. They were the only ones who would even think about renting me a car.

    However, the under 25 rule...

    Great for Speed Trap Areas

    I'm not a fan of cruise control for resting my feet, but I drive a lot in areas known for having speed traps. I set my cruise control a little below the speed limit when I'm going through these towns...
