Might as well admit it, now that it's not going to happen. I have been trying to arrange my upcoming travels so I could swing through New Orleans on my way back from the wedding this weekend, but $1,200 extra for the "triangle trip" was just crazy. I figure I can visit later for a tiny fraction of that cost, and actually get to spend some time with my friends down there without the chaos of Mardi Gras. Would've been nice to get down there next week, and I still will... sometime this year if I can, and some year soon for Mardi Gras. Promise.
