On Down The Road

Up and rolling about 8 AM.  Down the road we picked up the Natchez Trace Pkwy again. We have been up and down the parkway and it’s a nice calm drive – no excitement what so ever.  I think they call it a peaceful drive.  Try it…  DSC_0004

Cotton anybody?DSC_0005

We got off the parkway somewhere….

What do the women of Mississippi drive…John Deer of course.DSC_0007

Alligators down here in Ole Mississippi. DSC_0010

Babies too….DSC_0011

More cotton.  I like the color of their covers.DSC_0012

Times are changing.  A friggin guard is one thing but a shack and a golf cart.  I bet he has the internet and Dish TV too.DSC_0013

No idea and don’t care…….just something to look at.DSC_0016

Now we are on some Mississippi back roads. My antennas got a whooping. I found a little campground on the map and thought we would go for it. What the hell.  It’s an adventure right?!DSC_0017

Well, it sets about a 1/4 mile off the Mississippi River.DSC_0018

The mighty Mississippi River.DSC_0020

The state park is Grand Gulf Military Monument, Port Gibson, MS.  It’s off the beaten path for sure and is rich is civil war history.  It’s a neat place.  42 sites, $17 FHU (50 AMP) and on a cement pad, with or without shade and paved roads.  The state ranger is pretty cool and tells the history as you check in and takes you to your site.  He might be bored also.  Buildings, museum and “stuff”  will keep you busy for a couple of days for sure.  It’s on our list to return to.

Plenty of sites available.  Check it out sometime.DSC_0045

It has rained everyday since leaving Warsaw, Indiana.  The coach underneath is washed…..

We should be in Livingston tomorrow, Sunday. Carol is excited because Marlene is there and they can go back to their Line Dancing routine of sun up to sun down.  Where’s the beer…………

See ya….
