If you do not go see Torrie Wilson and Koda Ibushi, you are really missing out.

Just got of the phone with the Northlake Nature Center. If anyone would like to join, which would either be Monday morning or far more likelier Tuesday morning through the mid-afternoon, here are some details:

Admission is free
$5 fee to participate in some on-site programs
There is canoing that goes to Lake Pontchartrain, and some locations offer canoe rentals
Temperatures are various and unpredictable, so layers are recommended. Dress for chilly and warmer temperatures.
Bug spray and sun screen recommended for hiking/walking trails

Two routes to Northlake from NOLA
The longer is completely free both ways, that being the I-10 bridge that connects to Eden Isle and Slidell
The shorter is the Lake Pontchartain Causeway bridge, which has a southbound only toll for $5 coming from Mandeville. This holds the Guinness World Record for the longest continuous bridge over water.

Most importantly, there are no captive wildlife species, as all are free to roam in their natural habitats. Most of them are nocturnal.

This will be prefaced by saying there is nothing in this for me (except for possible carpools.)

For those looking to save significant money on their trip, I recommend booking the 4-star chain Candlewood Suites in Slidell.

Downsides:
• 30-35 miles away from the Superdome and Smoothie King Center, and it's approximately a 30-minute drive without any traffic congestion
• Have to drive and park throughout New Orleans, with some locations charging for parking (although great deals can be found through ParkWhiz and other services)
• If without a vehicle or carpool, Uber or taxi will be needed
• Party animals may not enjoy having to get away from the 24/7 racket that'll be all over the French Quarter

Upsides:
• Save literally several hundred dollars in hotel expenses (I calculated that before gas and parking, my party of 2 is saving $770.11 on a 6-night stay after switching to this location and cancelling my room at the Observer group's Royal St. Charles in the French Quarter. This savings was on a AAA discount; without it, the savings is $707.)
• No toll to cross either side of the I-10 bridge connecting New Orleans and Eden Isle
• Location includes free parking, high-speed WiFi, breakfast servings, 24/7 washer/dryer laundry services, some kitchen dishes, and personal kitchen appliances (home sized fridge/freezer, stovetop, microwave, dishwasher). This allows substantial saving by cooking instead of dining out.
• Get away from the 24/7 racket that'll be all over the French Quarter. This racket can include constant beggars and drunken vomiting odors.
• 6-minute walk from a 24-hour Walmart Supercenter (Candlewood employee confirms to be a safe walk)
• Numerous other nearby retail locations within a 15-minute walking distance, including a Sam’s Club and shopping mall

Anyone who’d be interested in booking this room and wants the AAA discount, contact me privately.

That Impact/LU is going to be a sleeper card. Airing for free on Twitch means it's going to be the most viewed non-WWE show of the week and the matches look good.

Rich Swann missing Saturday's The Crash show probably means Swann/Fenix/Flamita has returned to being Fenix/Flamita but they haven't said anything yet.
