Wife has a 2014 that we bought in 2019. She loves it and it hasn't had any major mechanical issues. Just replaced the alternator at 140,000 miles and the rear A/C blower went out at about 120k are the biggest repairs. Office manager here at the office gets a new acadia every 2 years. She loves them....

Caught some nice trout in the surf last Wednesday, water was clean. Wind picked up Thursday and they weren't as plentiful but still caught a few in the surf. Plastics and live bait. Guy near us wade fishing (we were in a boat) had his limit using a double rig dragging it on the bottom on Wednesday. ...

re: Red Snapper Quota

It is odd that the first week's catch is 5x higher than any other week. I will say though that we were in Grand Isle for opening weekend. Winds were very favorable for going offshore. The island was as busy as I've seen it in the last 2 years. Grand isle marina was full of boats headed to catch snap...

Only place I can sit and do nothing. Go once a year in October when it's not as hot. Sit on the beach 5 days straight from 9am-6pm with a drink in my hand. All other vacations we do are non stop action every day....

[quote]I keep hearing the tolls are really expensive. Do they accept credit cards?[/quote] It's toll by plate unless you have a geaux pass account. There is no toll booth. Takes 5-7 days to get your transponder if you sign up for an account. Truck with boat is now $21.50. Truck alone $4.50....
2003 Chevy SIlverado that I sold in 2019 with 230k miles on it. 12 years is the general advice on when repair costs outpace a new car note. When you can DIY though, only once you get to major repairs does that start to be the case....

re: Night Fishing Memories

Posted by LSUengr on 5/5/24 at 6:49 am
Did it quite frequently in Venice, not as much recently. Leave the camp on Pass A Loutre about 30 min before dark. Head to the main pass rigs so that you arrive just at dark. Fish would turn on about an hour later once the lights had attracted the baitfish. Would catch specs, white trout and red...
Another vote for Neato. Have owned 2 in the last 6-7 years. Picks up the majority of the dog hair and dirt. Gets the floor clean enough in between major cleans....

I will say it again, you NIMBYs are the worst. You know nothing about the oridinances or engineering. Always pull out the boogeyman, apartments. Do you realize everyone cant afford a $500k house? In the NIMBY mind, that should be the bottom of the housing stock. Development is called progress, witho...
