I am sooo pissed! I hate being taken advantage of just because we are out-of-towners!

    Thank you thank you thank you so much for your honesty and having the descency to care about our family safety. Now, this woman said they only have ONE lot for RV use...but I will be calling her tomorrow to find out about the streets names you mentioned, but it sounds like the entire "lot" is still in the same general vicinity of these "projects"....I should have know it was too good to be true to find available spots...I should have stuck with my original campground idea...geesh!

    Again, thanks for your help...I can't even imagine what we would have done rolling up unaware of the situation and spent a thousand dollars on fuel getting there and wasting $600 for the "lot spot".

    GO RAVENS!!
    Deb
    If you are closer to Canal I think you would be probably be safe in that lot, although again, it is at the edge of the tourist area and it is a bit isolated and you wouldn't want to move around to much late at night......i have been around those projects but its the kinda deal where at night you have to watch your back. There is another RV lot in that general area, but its in a more secure location on the other side of the highway. I hope I am not being too alarmist, but just realistic.

    Deb, Just so you know where I am coming from: I fully admit that, when I was a New Orleans suburbanite, I had a strong bias against the city neighborhoods outside of the French Q and Garden District/Tulane/Loyola corridor. Due to gang violence, including preying on unsuspecting tourists (and suburbanites). I used to be a Saints season ticket holder in the 80's, and have attended a dozen or so Saints games in recent years as a visitor to NOLA, frequently tailgating at surface lots. I honestly do not recall ever seeing an RV near the Dome.

    My advice is: stay at the campground in Mississippi about the last exit before the Louisiana State line, near the Pearl River. Rent a car or find other transportation to get into the downtown (I had suggested to others to park near the NOLA airport and take the shuttle downtown - that would work if the remote lots are open - check with Moisant/Armstrong airport). If the Mississippi camp is closed, explore camping along the Gulf Coast. We used to have a small RV to camp near Perdido Beach, Florida, where we could literally catch our dinner with rod & reel. You could rent a car to get into the city. You may find another campground between Mobile, Biloxi, Gulfport, Pass Christian. Most of these locations have airports with rental cars to take into the City.

    One alternative worth exploring: there used to be many RV's that would come into the city for the JazzFest at the Fairgrounds race track. You could take a cab downtown. The last Jazz Fest I attended was around 2002, so this may a useless suggestion, but at least worth a phone call. NOLA Raven Fan can tell you if the surrounding area is safe.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    Mississippi is a good idea, also the are RV parks on the West Bank. Fairgrounds racetrack is currently open so you can't park there.
    I will check tomorrow and see if I can find more info at coffee.

    I just got a ticket for media day from Ticketmaster so I will be in the Dome Tuesday.....maybe meet up if any of you are there.

    End rant, just pissed I cant cough up 10k dollars. The AFCCG cost me 1/5 of that.
    I thought the same thing at first...but blame the Fans for paying those crazy ass prices, not the NFL. All it would take is to have a Super Bowl half filled for them to change it.

    As for me I just bit down on one of the Same Day Air deals from Prime Sport/go2bowl.com.

    As much as I'd love a few days in Nawlins, can't swing it workwise nor budget-wise. Bought just the airfare (plus ground transp. to/from airport , to "official Ravens pre-game party" (whatever that is), & to the Superdome, SB 47 swag, lanyard, blah, blah, blah. Substituted myown e-bay upper endzone ticket - saving about $575 vs. their ticket price in the package. That put the whirlwind of a day just +$400 over my original budget.

    The One Big Day strategy just worked for Foxboro, thanks to Rorbaugh Bus (my legs are just beginning to straighten out again lol). The one day deal gives you an instant Ravens' peer group, except during the game. But I figure Upper Endzone Corner will likely be the domain of Ravens' faithful or neutrals.
    Love the tip Tucker, thanks.

    Re: SUPER BOWL PACKAGES to fit your budget

    The SuperBowl is a Corporate Ad! It is the Premier Sporting Event in the USA and it will never be affordable for the average fan. It is a HUGE Cash Cow for the NFL and one of the many reasons the Players and Teams can make the money they do. Why would the NFL lower the Face Value when the demand will hold for the high prices? Add on the fact that a $850 (Face Value) is selling for over $2000 now in the Nose Bleeds? As long as they Sell Out .... Expect next year to be even higher!

    If anyone is still looking for tickets or lodging...

    We have two tickets for sale. (We bought through StubHub, and then got lucky enough to get in a box.) Selling for what we paid, $5100 for the pair, Sec 631, Row 11. Message me if interested.

    Also one of the houses we were looking at is available, great rate, only three night minimum. Location isn't great, but it's in town, cab ride to the Stadium/Quarter.

    From the owner:
    "Two Great rental properties are Still Available for The Super Bowl
    The big house called the Tchoup House (3 bdrm 2.,5 bath 2300 sqft sleeps 8-10 ppl.)
    and a smaller house (2 bdrm 2 bath 1200 sqft sleeps 4-6 ppl.) )called the Pork Tchoup
    Check them both out at www.tchouphouse.com they are connected by a shared back fence and gate.
    The rate for that Super Bowl weekend is $2,000 per night for the big house and $1,000 per night for the small house
    Rates may be negotiable."

    Any thoughts on cabs from the airport? Is think going to a Vegas situation where you can wait an hour for a cab? Or are there a ton of airport cabs in NoLa? Trying to figure out if we should get other transportation from airport to the Quarter.

    Can't friggin' wait!!!

    Baltimore native living in NOLA for the past 15 years. I noticed a few folks without tickets coming down with families to tailgate and take it all in and I wanted to give out some Mardi Gras info.

    Mardi Gras in the city is strange this year due to the super bowl. One week this week, a week off for the media circus and game, followed by the big Mardi Gras weekend after the Superbowl. However the Jefferson Parish parades that take place in Metairie (kind of like Towson is to Baltimore) and the Westbank will be going on Superbowl weekend so if you want to take the kids to experience mardi gras while you are here this is a good family freindly option.

    Link to JP Mardi Gras info

    Direct link to Family Gras info:
    http://www.experiencejefferson.com/v...s/family-gras/

    Also, as NOLAraven has already pointed out there are hundreds of places close to the dome to eat and drink. I'd like to add one of my friends places to the list. The Ugly Dog Saloon. Cheap food and drinks,Raven friendly and within walking distance to the dome. If folks are interested I can arrange drink specials and such as a place to meet on Saturday or something.

    http://www.uglydogsaloon.net/

    Also one last thing, if you have time while you are here try and make it to the WWII museum. It is truly amazing.

    Anyone needs anything at all, either before or while they are here I can be contacted at james@nofh.com
