The Official Louisiana Herd Thread

Yeah, I did it... I created this new Official O/T Thread.

It appears that there are more new owners in the area looking to join the herd. I thought it would be easier for new members to find. So, let this thread be the general talk thread for the LA Herd.

We've got a nice sized group. We're spread out all across south Louisiana. We've got members From Covington and New Orleans to Lake Charles. I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, but I now live in Denham Springs. I believe we have roughly 25 people in the group.

Selena, I believe the crawfish boil will be in mid April. Eric is supposed to start a thread sometime next month to give everyone plenty of notice. I'm assuming it will be in Covington again. If so, Eric has the coolest parents in the world!

There's no set date for the Abita Cruise. Obviously, we'll try to set it for a day when everyone can make it. Can you let me know what Saturday in March would be good for you? I plan to create a thread for the Abita Cruise in the next couple of weeks.

In on 1. This is the OT afterall.

Mike, for the crawfish boil, Mar 14, 15, 16, 28, 29, 30 are out for me. Im game for the others.

Oh and I am officially looking for a house. Its time for me to move out and on my own so here goes. Downfall is that the cam packages I was looking at will have to wait.

Gary, Eric will be handling the boil. I believe that will be in April or May. I'm thinkg of doing the Abita run in March. So, you're good with either the first weekend or third weekend in March. Noted. Selena, can you get me some dates that'll work for you? As of now, I'm thinking March 21st.

Getting a house is fun and all, but it takes it's toll on the mod money. You'll get to mod house stuff though. I completed the monstorous 1/2 hp Insinkerator (garbage disposal) Sunday. That baby will grind up some junk!

The boil is roughly scheduled for April 21. Mark your calenders. I am going to try to get the parents place again. I am sure they won't mind.

Okay guys, I'm going to set a tentative date of March 21st. I'm going to get in touch with the folks at the Abita Pub for lunch. They have a room for large groups. I believe it's good for up to 30 people. I'll create an official thread this weekend with details.

Eric and Andrew, is the March 21 date good for you?

Dennis, you out there?

Okay guys. I just sent an e-mail off to Kathy at Abita. Groups of over 20 people are asked to schedule an alternate tour time. I also asked about reserving the room at the Brew Pub for lunch afterwards. I'm not sure how far in advance they need to schedule so hopefully, I'm well ahead of any other groups. Hopefully, I'll hear back from Kathy tomorrow. Once I have the green light from her on the March 21st date, I'm going to need some solid commitments for the cruise. I'm assuming we'll have a little over 20 people. If we end up with less than 20, we'll be able to take a regularly scheduled tour.

Sorry I meant beer run. As far as the dates I was looking at 2008. I wont be available Mar 13, 14, 15, 27, 28, 29. Only one day off so not too bad. March 21 sounds good to me.

Yeah I wont be able to do everything like I wanted but its time for a house so Ill probably be painting and all that nice stuff before too long.

good luck with the house search, bro!

A friend of mine is a realtor and helping me find a place so hopefully it wont be too bad. Besides the more we look at houses the more I get to ride along in his Z06. Only problem is I keep thinking to myself, "I gotta get one of these."

Feb 1st, that sunday I will be working nights so no go. The 25th, I guess your wanting to go to the wednesday night TNT. I should be off that day so it sounds good to me.

You busted me. I guess I wasn't being stealthy enough.

I think I'm in for the Abita lunch. They have good burgers.
