Episode 9: Tow for the Road in the Big Easy
The good news is that Scott survived his 20-hour "North Coast to Gulf Coast" solo drive. The not-so-good news is that if you’ve been waiting to hear what 20 hours on the road sounds like, you'll have to wait just a little longer. We decided to switch up our New Orleans episodes so that you hear all about our experience in the Big Easy, then go back in time to hear how Scott got there.
In this episode, we discuss our adventure in New Orleans, where we each did a bit of individual exploration and then spent one marathon of a day hitting up the food, shopping and sightseeing on our must-visit list. Check it out to hear all about the delicious, eclectic, and macabre sides of New Orleans we experienced … plus learn about a new-to-us tool that came in really handy for planning our trip and exploring the city!

Mentioned in this episode:
Where we recorded: Pennsylvania Turnpike service plazas seem to becoming our go-to recording spot. We recorded this episode from the New Stanton service plaza, which is definitely a step up from our last service plaza recording spot.
A few of our New Orleans favorites: We squeezed a lot into a few days, which you'll hear all about in the episode. Our top-5 favorite spots included: Verti Marte, Museum of Death, Original French Market, SecondLine Arts and Antiques, and The Spotted Cat Music Club. Check out the episode for our full list!
Google Trips app: Because we wanted to see a lot in a short period of time, Amanda tried out the Google Trips app to research, organize the places we wanted to visit and get us from point A to point B to point Z quickly.
Campsite Cleanup Campaign: While we were traveling, we read about Airstream's commitment to help our national forests address the maintenance backlog and trail restoration needed after the partial government shutdown. As part of Airstream’s Leave It Beautiful program, the company is matching every dollar up to $25,000 given to the National Forest Foundation, the non-profit partner of the U.S. Forest Service. We think that’s awesome! Click here to learn more and support the National Forest Foundation.
