    I have been trying to get out of florida for the longest its too expensive and i found lafayette louisiana to please my comfort.

    And i was wondering anyone in the forums from lafayette Louisiana,

    Any recomendations, places to see, cities to scout for posible living?
    I am 100 percent pro 1&2 amendment i am a gun enthusiast so i would like to practice my carry in peace also,

    Any national parks or forest ? I like the wild.
    Places to meet people?
    If you have any ideas it would come in handy for my travels.

    Also how cheap is the rent to live on your own comfortably.?

    Never been to Louisiana, but family from there say it's a sportsman's paradise: something to hunt or fish or do outdoors pretty much every day of the year. As far as finding things to do or places to live, I found folks on city-data to be really helpful when I moved from CA to ND last year.

    Lived there as a kid. Very nice place to be. ULL is beautiful and there is great access to nature everywhere. I catch a few Ice Gators games a year when I can... random, but fun small town entertainment. It's a very big small town.

    Tell me. How is it you become ok with it?

    I grew up in South Arkansas, and I loathe all things humid. From the hanging, sultry air that feels like it has its own weight to my clothes sticking to my skin and pulling with unrelenting friction I hate absolutely nothing worse than summertime in the South. I basically hole up for four months and walk from house to vehicle, from vehicle to office in utter disgust. Just typing this is making me angry, I despise summer that much.
