Cruisin' The Coast with CJ
2002-10-09
This was our first trip to the Mississippi/Louisiana area and our first Cruisin’ the Coast event. Many thanks to Laddie Roussell for organizing and executing this event. It was great to see a lot of our “old” friends and it was great to meet a lot of “new” friends. It’s always fun to finally be able to put a face to a name from the board. We only had one day of rain (in spite of the bad forecasts), but it did not put a damper on things. The hotel was really nice and it was non-stop activity. The Van Dells singing group was terrific and their drummer was one of the most awesome drummers I’ve seen. There was a lot of great cruisin’, entertainment and fantastic cars. We had a wonderful time with the Prowler owners and there were a lot of laughs!! One of the highlights of the event was the Prowler Drags that was held at the No Problem Raceway in Louisiana. It was my first chance at taking my cat down the 1/4 mile and it was a total blast. Hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoyed the event. If you missed it this year..........plan on being there next year!!!
