the New I-10 Saints Caravan Thread -- for those of you driving

This thread is not just for my guys coming from Houston, but for anyone on the roads. Lets help each other out.

So we Saints fans, I believe, do more driving than any other fan base, except maybe Green Bay. The I-10 Houston to New Orleans Caravan has to be the biggest in football. Even before the Storm, partly due to the Oil Biz, a lot of people split time between TX & LA. Houston has as many WhoDats as it does Texans fans.

I always paint a big shoe-white FLEUR DE LIS on my back window, and of course all the Saints stickers.

Another phenomenon of Saints fandom is getting "WhoDat'ed, when you drive down the road, right? "honk honk honk honk!" (big wave, thumbs up, or #1 gesture)

So, just wondering, who else is making the I-10 Saints March this weekend? Or from whatever roadway? S-Port? Mississippi? Alabama? Where you comin from?

-- anybody know speed traps or construction?
-- best place to stop & eat?
-- got a gameday road ritual?
-- show us pic of your ride, when you're all Saints'ed out.
-- if you'd like to be on the b&g phone list, pm me.

If you want some memories, read the old caravan thread, it goes back to the '09 season up to us going to the Super Bowl:

I come from central Mississippi, down I-55 to I-10, to New Orleans, but I'll be doing it tomorrow. It's probably fun to convoy like that. It kinda reminds me of going to road games when I was at LSU.

Game day on the Hwy 90 corridor from Lafayette to the Dome is always interesting.... lots of the bars along the way have out door parties encouraging fans to stop for a coke or something (wink wink) stronger..... I always spend Sunday nite in the city so cant say what its like going back but its fun heading over

Buds, be very careful what you let Strato give you to drink.
Remember how I looked before the Texans game. Its his fault.

We gotta sit the Colts game out, and will be watching game from Beach City, TX, (near Baytown), which is right off of I-10.

We'll also be very near our new home, (moving in in 2 weeks) which will be 1 hour closer to New Orleans, and will be minutes from I-10!

So you'll have a new stop on your way back and forth, and I'll keep cold beer in the fridge.
