I'm heading to the Final Four in New Orleans on Friday, and I was curious if any of you are finding new cars on my route from Bowling Green, KY to New Orleans? Haha..as excited as I am to get there, I still have time for pit stops to get new cars. I'll be going through TN, into AL (Birmingham), and then down through Mississippi to Gulfport and over to New Orleans.

@Piper Please be cautious when driving in new orleans! We dont drive that good, and we love to drive fast....be cautious of your surroundings too.. oh do not go to burbon street alone! My Brother is a NOPD officer, i know alot of stories that most of the puplic doesn't know.

If you come up to baton rouge area, give me a holla!

oh. and please do not stop at any store, gas station, or resturant between New Orleans City Limits and Slidell... Looking out for your safety, do not stop in New Orleans East.

Thanks for the info! I appreciate it.. Yes, I found the first 2 waves before just about anyone, but since then there's been 10 or 12 cars that I can't find anywhere around here in southcentral KY. ****Also, thanks for the safety tips; I've never been there, so I have no clue about the area..I'm simply trusting groups of "blue" to be my UK friends..haha.

I'd like to for sure, but I have to work part of tomorrow..so I won't get down that way until about midnight. We're going to try and catch Jimmy Buffett on Sunday night it looks like.

I know this to be true. After Katrina I was part of a group who went to Slidell for a week, to muck out houses.

5 country bumpkins who had never been to a real big city. So we made the mistake of thinking we should drive into New Orleans to see the damage. Let's just say not a smart move.

New Orleans East will remain abandoned..just like 6 Flags over there.

the State is only wanting to get the City of New Orleans, Utown, City Park, and the Greater New Orleans Area, back to the way it was...

i have a video i did 6 months ago driving through NO East...i found a house still with a CAR on the roof!!!
