It's official, you've been waiting on the edge of your seat with no

Southern Get Together in Nawlins'

Big Easy Vn750 Assembly - now to be known as BEVA
Presidents Day weekend '05 - Fri, Feb 18 through Mon, Feb 21

Here's a reminder or if you haven't reserved a spot, still taking
names (indicate if interested, probable, or close to definite) if
you can make it.

I'll need lotsa help to pull this off and the response seems good so
far and everyone is looking forward to the experience.


This is the Bed & Breakfast we are staying at. This is what they
quoted me:

3 night stay, Feb. 18, 19 & 20, 2005 in all 5 of our guest suites
accommodations for up to 14 guests
3 regular guest suites with 1 Queen Bed, private bath (each sleep 2)
2 large guest suites with 1 queen bed, 1 covertable double sofa bed,
private bath (sleeps 4 each)
Buffet style continental plus breakfast each morning:
coffee, juice, fruit, pastries & scrambled eggs
$7.00 each Additional guest per night * limited # in room, please
confirm #'s with Woodridge prior to securing additional guests
Free use of our pavilion for a 3 hour, self catered, gathering of
overnight guests (use for seafood boil, BBQ etc.)
The price for 14 people for the 3 nights would be $80 per person for
the wkend. Isn't that great?!?!?! Now, if we had less people show
up it will cost more, more people show up it will cost less. This
place is REALLY nice & they are giving us a huge cut rate because I
am reserving the whole B&B for the wkend. "

Mike says:
As for riding, I can envision the ride around Lake Ponchartrain,
around Lake Maurepas, Slidell to Biloxi along the Gulf of Mexico
coast rode, Mississippi River road, etc. Piney forest roads, Bayou
and swamp back roads, Mississippi River Road - plantations and big
bridge River crossings, Chalmette War1812 Battle Nawlins' ride, and
a sandy beach road ride along the Gulf of Mexico for as far as the
eye can see.

Also, by popular demand, their can be the nightly Big Easy city
rides through the French Quarter, Garden District, MidCity, and
Uptown, ending with Lakeshore Drive along the lake; and sure, it
could be done during daylight.

Don't miss the BEVA with Vince's ride from Slidell, LA to Laplace,
LA on LA state Hwy 51 along the Bayou stopping in Manchac for a meal
at Middendorf's and if you stop in Ruddock, it's like the guy in the
song "Uneasy Rider" making his unplanned stop.

Don't miss the Slidell, LA ride to Picayune, MS and then south on
state hwy 408 for 50mi through the piney woods Desota National
forest winding down to sleepy fisher port city of Gulfport, MS for
lunch at one of my personal favorites: the White Cap Restaurant
overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and beaches for wading and swimming.
