Stayed there. Nice park...kinda away from everything. Travel to the ferry on the south side of the Mississippi to cross over to new Orleans proper. Saves some parking headaches.

Can you tell me if there are any concerns from I-10 to 90 to 23? I did an satellite view and it looks like a mess. Cannot figure out the transfer process from I-10 to 90 and whether it's a right or left lane transfer.

I have not crossed the bridge on US-90 so maybe others that have taken that route can speak up.

As for I-10 into New Orleans, be prepared to do about 25 mph in an RV on the Eastern Egress. I don't think they have fixed the roller coaster ride you will get. I have only been in that way once and the other times I have used the Western I-10 route. Someone may have taken the Pontchartrain route and can speak for it.

Happy trials and enjoy the trip.
Will that section has been repaired and it was never that bad to have to go 25 MPH.
Enjoy your time there.

Satellite views are from a long time ago. You will have no problems.

New Orleans NAS FAMCAMP

The campground at Belle Chase was recently renovated and is very nice. The roads leading into the NAS are horrible. They must pay the road crews to make large potholes. Watch the signs carefully as it is easy to get stuck in the wrong lane if he traffic is busy. We stayed there in March and it was great.

Did you take in the museum at NAS Pensacola, as old ground pounder I found it intersting. X 2 on the D Day museum & Cafe' Du Monde. If you are in the French Quarter on the weekend might run into some pretty good jazz and the cathedral is also nice to visit. I do prefer the Lafayette area which is some 90 miles west. Those Cajuns do know how to party and the food is great, but to each his own.

We are going in on Sunday so maybe we'll get a little break on the traffic... I'll try and dodge as many holes as I can. Appreciate everyone's input...

We just spent 3 weeks there in Parker's Landing. It is off of I-20 and cheap. There are great parks on the beach also. Jefferson Davis; last home Beauvoir, has been restored and worth a tour. Great people, good food and the area has made remarkable recovery.

What a buzz kill.

Even then the affects of Camille were still evident. Haven't been back there since. Had a friend who goes down there regularly. He says there are still lingering affects of Katrina (2005). Seems like folks just aren't interested in going back and that has impeded progress.
It's not that people are not interested in building back but insurance is the hold back. Most people have no idea that Katrina came ashore in Ms, they all think it hit NOLA. Katrina wiped out the Ms coast but the flooding in New Orleans attracted all the media attention. After the storm a lot of insurance company's refuse to write a homeowners policy south of I 10 and the ones that will are astronomical in price. Most people just can't afford to self insure and build back close to the beach. I have looked at a house that should list for 250K plus and had the owner state that he would consider a sub 100 K offer but his insurance is over $8000 per year. I live in north Ms but had a lot of friends and relatives in the Gulf Port, Biloxi, Bay St Louis area, most that lost home decided not to rebuild there because of insurance cost. Those that didn't lose homes have said that they can't afford to sell because of buyers difficulties obtaining insurance.

I totally agree that there are forces like insurance that make folks "not interested" in going back. Even the politics of disaster relief are becoming all gummed up. Right, wrong or indifferent there are pressures to reduce federal aid to disaster areas. Folks in IL will argue that it is ya'll's fault for moving into such areas and that you (thus insurance companies) need to take the brunt.

I guess I am saying I support your position and wish it weren't so.
