    That being said, is it worth going to?

    Information from Facebook

    Looks like we are going to have one heck of a good time down in Bayou Land March 23rd, 24th & 25th! Our host hotel - Wingate Wyndam 1-985-872-4436 is filling up fast.

    We now have a block of rooms available at the Microtel Inn & Suites. This hotel is right next door to the host hotel (walkable across a driveway access). You will have to book your room directly with the hotel for the group rate of $55.00 + applicable taxes per night!! Tell them that you are with the Spyder group. They will honor this rate for the duration of your stay - not just the event dates. The rooms are a bit smaller than the Wingate, they only have queen or double beds, have a few smoking rooms and is pet friendly (reason for lower pricing). The direct phone number for this hotel is 1-985-223-9910.

    Register at Paypal (sracajuncountrychapter@yahoo.com) $40.00 per person. Register prior to Feb 15th for your free event T-Shirt! Place your T-Shirt size (s) in the comment section.

    We will try and be back this year we had so much fun last year and petting a giant wild alligator was a hoot. I just hope my engine doesn't blow up on the way home this year like last year.

    Very much in the wild, he was sunning on top of some floating plants and the guide just pulled up next to his tail and lifted it out of the water and a couple of brave people petted it.

    I doubt we would be leaving on the 21st, have to schedule around wife's vacation time... so long as we get there in time for the good Cajun cooking were happy happy happy. Our departure date is TBD.

    Not a wise move in my estimation. About 15 years ago when I worked at the Strategic Petroleum Reserve oil storage site at Bayou Choctaw near Plaquemine, LA one morning there was a young alligator about 3' long on the lawn next to the office building. An operations shift foreman took a 6' long fiberglass pole, and as I watched and walked with him, he prodded the gator toward some water across a soon to be hot asphalt parking lot. Every once in awhile the gator got rather ticked off at having his tail touched and would flip around to snap at the pole. You could not see the 180 turn around that gator did it was so fast. I decided then and there one thing you should never do is close enough to a gator that he can turn around and bite you. It would not be a pretty sight!

    Thanks to all of the Vendors who are taking the time to attend "Spyders on the Bayou" and thanks to the more than 200 people who registered for the event. Everyone in south Louisiana is getting excited. We have a lot of really nice rides scheduled for this years event.

    I was dawdling this morning then looked at the calendar and realized I'm leaving tomorrow and not Wednesday! So this afternoon was a mad rush. But I'm ready and will be on my way in the morning. Can't wait to see y'all again!
