The trip has finally started.... After doping the cats we left Houston about 7:00 this morning. Took I-10 to Louisiana. Drove by the Jeff Davis Park in LA but when Geri thought he fought at the Alamo. I was laugh so hard we missed the exit. Finally saw the Mississippi River but because of the rain we couldn't stop of pictures.
Did make a quick stop at the Harley Store in Hammond, LA to purchase a shirt.
Some interesting facts about Louisiana:
-You can buy liquire at the gas stations.
-There are Dairy Queens and Whataburgers in LA regardless what Nolan says
-They call there cities "corp"
Finally around 1:30 we crossed the Mississippi border. There was not alot to see but trees and a few houses. I guess that should not be surprising since there are more people in Houston then the whole state of Mississippi. The lasted 50 miles of the trip was on Natchez Trace Pkwy which took us thru the Tombigbee National Forest but after about twenty miles I got bored and started looking for wildlife including Bigfoot. We did see the Witch Dance stop but there was not even one witch.
Got to Tupelo at 6:00 this evening. Tomorrow we are going to explore and take picture.
