i've never been to louisiana or mississippi. i'm planning to head down through arkansas into these states in early october. i would love to eat some cajun food, hear some cajun music( which i have always loved) and meet some cajun folks along the way. i'll have camping gear with me. motels ok too. be riding my road king so would like to stay on asphalt two lane scenic roads off the slabs, ect. i could sure use some suggestions on route, earthy places to visit and definitely cajun folks, food and music. im a kansas country boy that has always been full of respect and wonderment for the cajun culture. any suggestions would be ever so much appreciated. tommy

Lots of good riding in the northern part of LA. For your Cajun experience, I'd suggest you make it down to Lake Charles and pick up Hwy 14 and roll on it to New Iberia. You'll get a good look at Cajun Country and have a few opportunities to maybe hear some Zydeco music along the way on local stations and a few of the watering holes. Take 90 eastbound at New Iberia and roll into New Orleans via that take 190 east to BR and then 61 to NO. Lots of entertainment and good food in NO. Take 90 east to Mississippi.
BTW, seems to be a growing number of Louisiana and Mississippi riders on this board, so you might get some riding companions along the way.
