I tried to tell him to put on some clothes but he said that you too picked that outfit out at some place in the French Quarter.
Just messing around.

Be careful.
I was on Lakeshore Dr and it is "oneway only" going east and I kept getting deeper into Africa. It was after dark. I finally made it to the Casino east of the airport and followed some people back to the Interstate.

Of course they tried to give me verbal driving instructions and I said, "No Dice. I am following you all the way to the interstate, so if you are not going all the way, I won't follow."

I have a good sense of dead reckoning but many streets are not through streets due to all the drainage canals. You can get stuck in a dead end or narrow street really easily. Things can go from ok to bad in a big hurry.

Find someone who really knows the area and go with them. What you see on the map is simple. What you get on the ground is different.

Lakeshore Drive is closed westbound from just west of the "airport" ramp to West End EVERY SUNDAY, and other random days that they so choose.

And yes, streets and areas change from good to bad real quick. Their love of one way streets and the necessity for canals down here created a screwed up street grid. I still get confused after almost a year.

Rand McNally makes the best local street map that I've found.

Just a heads up about the roads- they are not good. Potholes, buckled concrete, tight turns, and steel curb edges are nasty to get tangled with.
