I am heading to New Orleans on May 17th and coming back the 19th. This is a great way to see a neighboring city with a lot of culture for a couple nights and explore for a long weekend. I want to leave early on Friday and return late on Sunday. Sharing gas is all I ask. My car seats 5 with light luggage fairly comfortably. I usually get 24mpg on the highway and the trip is often $200/RT in gas.
