STE3 Hop 4: Duson LA to Waveland MS

STE3 Hop 4

STE3 Hop 4

175 miles via I-10, I-12 and MS 607. Cumulative tow miles: 754. Truck miles: 176. Cumlative truck miles: 879.

This hop, like the others on I-10 and I-12, was rough. There were some pretty long stretches that felt like we were riding on railroad ties. But it was also interesting. It skirted the northern shore of Lake Ponchetrain, with long bridges over swampland. This was much more interesting scenery than we had in Texas. And, somewhat surprisingly, the bridges were a smoother ride than the rest of the interstate.

The navigation on this hop was a snap: get on I-10 until we reached MS 607, then follow the signs to the Silver Slipper Casino. Our destination was the casino’s RV park on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico.

Our two nights in Duson were spent at the Frog City RV Park, just off of I-10. This is a perfect location for an overnight stay. We stayed an extra night because I wanted to sample the local cuisine – cracklins and boudin. But the day was cloudy and unseasonably cold, so we didn’t go anywhere. I regret that as the boudin sounds delicious. I’m not so sure about the cracklins.
