... convenient! BUt I am an expert in 'inventing' parking spots, where none existed before.
I asked the bellman what the street parking policies were and they were Saturday (today) free after 1800 and all day Sunday. Sold, I parked across the street and bought a 3 hour ticket to get me to 1800, well 1748 at least! The bellman warned my sometimes drunken streetwalkers will sit on bikes to show off to their friends, but that had happened during Mardi Gras ...
Miles and miles of identical motorway, through forested country, with huge long bridges over swampy river estuaries made up the journey along the Gulf Coast to New Orleans. Rest area with dump point and WiFi. Crossed three states, Alabama into Mississippi and then Louisiana.

This is the 2nd blast of artic air that has set records in Southern States (1st one in November in Georgia). I guess I can't complain, some folks had it a lot worse up North!
