Travel Blog: Number 4!

Posted:

Good afternoon Internet! Mark Klein here from News Channel Five's Weekend Drive!

Weekend Drive has officially been on one of it's most fun shoots of record! For the first time, the Weekend Drive Pit Crew got DIRTY… Actually, muddy! We headed down to Colfax for a slightly different experience, the Louisiana MudFest for their Uncle Sam Mud Jam! They promised me I could go… As long as I bring a change of clothes and a towel! I love doing out of the ordinary adventures working for Weekend Drive so this was right up my alley!

   Apart from our mud-bath, Weekend Drive has a lot of other tasks to complete as well! This weekend, you'll find me at the Paragon Casino Resort at the 8th Annual La Cuisine de la Louisiane! Supporting all our local restaurants including Tunk's Cypress Inn who presents Weekend Drive each week for you!

   Also, school is starting up yet again! Some are excited, others not so much. However, even with school here, one thing still remains the same. THE WEEKENDS! You can take a Weekend Drive, anytime!

   Finally I leave you with one of my… Finer moments.

PS: Pie on your face for a few hours smells… "Sweet"
