The ‘voyage of the ugly’ was the ultimate road trip

Voyage

Friends stand ready to depart on the ultimate road trip in 1976 (from left): Tim Barton, Bill Banning and Eric Howmann.

My husband, Tim, and I had a road trip planned for this holiday weekend. Destination: New Orleans.

We’ve been planning this trip since way back in the year 2019. I booked our room at a hotel on Royal Street in the heart of the French Quarter. I even made reservations at our favorite restaurants — K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen for our first night and The Pelican Club on our last — with lots of other deliciousness in between. We could almost hear the sound of a street-corner saxophonist and taste the muffulettas, beignets and hurricanes.
