Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here
The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in La Conner, Washington. I’ll Depart here August 13th.
Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.
The motorhome is parked at Chicot State Park near Ville Platte, Louisiana. We are scheduled to depart here on Friday.
Built in 1939, at 6,400 acres with 198 campsites, it’s Louisiana’s largest state park. You can read about Chicot State Park, Louisiana by clicking this Wikipedia link…
The reason we are here is that it’s located along the Zydeco Cajun Prairie Byway which you can read about by clicking this link…
Yesterday we took the Bronco the about 10 miles south to the city of Ville Platte (Flat Town in French). You can read about Ville Platte by clicking this Wikipedia link…

The old bank building is now a restaurant called The Cock’s Tail which features a lot of paintings by local artists. We did not eat there, but you can find out about this place by clicking this link…
Because Mary and I are no-salt people, we were intrigued by Jack Miller’s Seasoning with no salt, we went to Jack Miller’s factory where they make a variety of Cajun seasonings and sauces. You can read about them and order their products by clicking their official website link…
We were greeted by second generation owner Kermit Miller and third generation follow-up Christian. They explained that they do not make the no-salt seasoning at that location which makes only barbecue sauce. They further explained that Jack Miller started in the restaurant business in 1941 and has been making seasonings and sauces since 1955. Here are some of the photos that I took…
They gave us a sample of their products…
I’ve tasted Jack Miller’s products in the past and they are delicious! Try them…you’ll like them!
Enjoying visiting local businesses is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
