Question avery island question

Tomorrow we would like to go out on Avery Island and tour the Tabasco plant. Are we able to drive our FC out there or are there clearance or road issues we need to be aware of?

Craig, I can't help with your question, but be sure and ask them if they still open all of the doors when they shut down at night. I worked around the island for many months after Hurricane Andrew. I was told by several of their employees that instead of securing the buildings, they left the doors open and tied back to the building to keep them open. The last man out dropped a pipe across the entrance to the bridge and padlocked it.

After dark the alligators walked out of the swamp, entered the buildings, and ate the bits and pieces found on the floor. The first person in the next morning took a long stick and tapped it on the legs of the work tables and the gators returned to the swamp.

I was told that they have never, never had a burglary. Or at least not one they could find.

We were over there in the car, a week ago. There were tour buses there and big motor homes. Should not have a problem. Part of the gardens, you can't drive through with a busy/motorhome, but you can walk and see everything.

Sounds like we're not going in after hours! We're OK with not being able to drive thru all the gardens. Mainly just want to take the tour of the plant. I love my Tabasco! Thanks

Don't miss Buda by the lake.

I don't know where you are staying, but Pioneer in Beaux Bridge is a great park for a bird and really great owners, right on I-10.
