Travel Writers Information
If you are writing about travel and tourist thingys that relate to St. Tammany Parish Northshore this note is for you. The St. Tammany Parish Tourist Commission are the people you may want to talk to or you can talk to me about tourism things in the New Orleans north shore area. I can help you with the offbeat things about the area that perhaps an "oflficial" CBV can not. Sure, I will gossip with you about Lee Harvey Oswald, the Honey Island Swamp Monster, and the decapitation of Jayne Mansfield (my cousin BTW.) But there is more. After you talk with me you will either want to get me arrested or introduce me to you next of kin. I know the lowdown on travel info about Abita Springs, Slidell, Covington, Mandeville, Madisonville, Folsom -- where ever and what ever, call me at 985-892-2624. I am not employed by the state or the parish and may not always give it to you sugar coated. Life is short, eat desert first. - John Preble
