How We Vacationed To New Orleans on a Budget

A classic muscle car, some change, and the open the road is how we landed in New Orleans!

It was 2010, we had a 88 Camaro, the open road, a full tank of gas and $750 dollars to our name. So, what did two 19 year olds do??? We went The Big Easy! With 1,500 miles separating us from Nola, Brielle, and I naturally loaded up on snacks and sugary drink (bad idea but hey we were 19).

We rested just 4 hours and hit New Orleans, running. Slammer @ Slims
