The way the Texas Boomers formed way back in 2000, was four couples that had never met, except on iRV2 Decided to get together for a camp out. We decided on a location and off we went. We had a great time and started posting about the next outing and all of the fun we had. The people started asking what they had to do to join....nothing, just love to RV, show up and have a great time.

So once you get a few folks interested, pick a location, post it here and see who all shows.

Ken

Tee Bah Doe

I am from a Thibodaux for Thibodaux, La if that helps

I now live in Texas but most of my family still lives in Gods country.

We are literally from the swamp, When my dad was a kid, he learned Cajun french before he spoke English. True story

Drakethib: I went to Nichols for a while and I still pass through Thib. quite often when going to visit relative in Houma. I used to fish out of Chavin quite a lot.

For everyone: Seems to me we should get together therefore why don't we pick a date & location. Let's keep in mind that we have people from Tx., Miss. LA.

I suggest weekend of March 23 & 24.
Where: Chicot State Park. (Ville Platte, LA.)

Open to any other suggestions, we can always vote.

Thank you, I hate it when people murder my last name so in turn I try to pronounce the last names of all I meet or potentially meet accurately.

I love how people make that claim no matter where they hail from.

I was only in LA once a long time ago visiting a relative who was stationed there for a brief period. Sure got to love some of the rick and spicy foods, which is why this Crazy Canuck started following the thread in the first place. I wish you luck in your endeavour and will try in the future to make it to one of your gatherings.

Thanks for responding.

Possum,

The original cajuns were exiles from Nova Scotia and settled in Louisiana. That's where the french names & accents came from.

I'm sure you already knew that.

Acadians was changed to Cajuns somehow. We all now know it is better in the South anyway, less snow, warmer weather & mudbugs.

Back when Denise and I were involved with TerriVic Jazz party in Victoria BC, our favorite Zydeco band was Gator Beat. Rich Domingue was more fun to be around and talk to than I can relate, clearly. I was so sorry to hear he had passed as the TerriVic Jazz went the way of the Dodo bird and we found out a few years after his death that Rich had died. We have several of their albums and I see the band members have kept the band going. R I P Rich.

There are a few Thibodaux living in my home town in Quebec but they spell it Tlhibodeau one of them own a large transport company,

There truck travel all over the U.S and Canada could be related to you ?

Sounds like you got enough folks interested. Now all you need to do is to decide on a location and a date. Sounds like you will have fun.

I went to Nichols myself. It may be a bit tough for me to try to camp that weekend but could I come out and maybe meet everyone just for the day if it works out?
