Ok thanks everyone! I should say it’s not me worrying it’s the DW! I told her that we can watch and see what’s happening and change plans it take off when we need to. I think I’m going to start planning that trip then.

I survived every hurricane to hit the Texas coast since 1950. Yeah you're overthinking it.
But watch the weather forecasts. Do not wait until a storm is on the coast near you to evacuate.
And yes, are you sure you're ready for the heat?

Yep no problem with the heat. Camped many times in 100+ degree weather!.......on the Gulf it's a wet heat! LOL
Belive it or not in 16 years of RV'ing, we haven't been straight south yet through IL and into the southern states! Looking forward to it.

Looking at some places in
Gulf Shores AL
Gulfport MS
New Orleans LA
And Galveston TX
Nothing in particular just want to do a lot of Gulf front sites. We like touristy things as well as other simpler things to do.

I think I found some places to stay, just haven’t nailed it down yet!

Just one comment on LA roads, if you think their interstates are bad wait until you get on their secondary roads...heh.

Waay over thinking. Like don't visit IL anytime March to September. Tornado season.

When was the last time anyone saw a hurricane in June or July anyway?

That's why I`m asking. and a tornados damage path is maybe a 1/4 mile wide and cant be seen a week in advance. a hurricane....a bit more and far more damaging and longer lasting, not to mention you can watch it coming and get out before it happens. which was my comment to my wife, but she wanted input from people that know the area.

X2 on La.roads. Rather than 50mph figure around 25-30mph at best.
