Apr 10, 2019 - Corinth, MS

We have diverted from our route to make a little visit with Laure. Janet's sister is glad to see us because I suspect she gets a little lonely now that Tim is gone. Being a widow must be difficult. We helped her with a few things and she is very grateful, and we don't mind doing some chores.

Dec 7, 2018 - Corinth, MS

We had a nice weekend of visiting with Laure. It was all pretty uneventful except for the great meals that we had. We helped Laure hang some pictures, helped put up her Christmas tree, and I fixed her garage door opener which just needed to have a separate power supply from the garage overhead light switch. Laure is doing OK after losing her husband Tim last summer. She has done some things to her house over the past few years that have made it much better than before, and still has some more to go. She has completely renovated her kitchen...

Dec 11, 2017 - Corinth, MS

Today we traveled on new highway in mild temps and sunny weather to Corinth, where Janet's sister Laure and brother-in-law Tim Jenkins live. It was really nice to be in light traffic and mild weather, for a change. Northern Mississippi did not get the foul weather that hit the southern part of Alabama and Georgia. Today we hit 60 degrees and tonight it is supposed to be in the mid-30's. Practically a heat wave. We had a nice dinner with the Jenkins and saw the changes they have made to their house, which we first saw a year ago just after...

Sep 2, 2017 - September 2, 2017 – Iuka, Burnsville, Jacinto and Corinth, Mississippi

September 2, 2017 – Iuka, Burnsville, Jacinto and Corinth, Mississippi I headed out this morning to Iuka which is the home of the highest point in Mississippi. It is 807’ above sea level. It was the location of an artillery battery during the Battle of Iuka in the Civil War. On September 19, 1862, Woodall Mountain, known then as Yow Hill, was occupied by Union General Rosecrans’s force of 4,500 soldiers. From there they rained shells on the town of Iuka which was held by Confederate General Sterling Price’s 3,200 men. Price later said that...

Nov 28, 2016 - Corinth, MS

We made Corinth, Mississippi one of our travel stops so that we could visit with Janet's sister, Laure. Laure has just moved from Versailles, KY because her job was transferred when the facility in Versailles closed down. We were surprised to discover that she is alone. Tim stayed behind in Kentucky since the old house is still for sale, and she has been working in Corinth and in the new house for a few weeks and most of their things are still in boxes. We still had a nice visit and caught up on all the family news. Getting to Corinth...

May 7, 2016 - Kayaking, Corinth and Hand Injury

2016-05-07. Kayaking and NE Mississippi Well, we finally launched the watercraft on Friday and paddled about 2 hours to one end of the lake or one of its bays, we’re not quite sure. In any event, it was chilly and windy on the lake but a lovely day anyway. We didn’t see a lot of wildlife and in the three days we camped at Piney Grove, we didn’t hear of anyone catching any fish. With it being the weekend, the campground did fill up but, probably because we are Yankees, no one took the sites on either side of us. The campground was...

May 5, 2016 - Natchez Trace Parkway, Piney Grove Campground

2016-05-05 – Natchez Trace and Piney Grove Campground Yesterday, we left Natchez and traveled the Natchez Trace highway to Kosciusko, Missisissipi where we stayed at the local Wal-Mart. The Natchez Trace is a 444 mile long roadway that does not permit any commercial vehicles, including cars with any kind of advertising logos or company names. Its 50 mph speed limit was perfect for us and we saw very few other vehicles during the 170 miles we traveled. We would recommend this route to anyone. It is a lovely, tree-lined road through forests...

Bayou Bound

Oct 26, 2013 - Last Stop Before Alabama

Heading to Mississippi Today we left around 9:00 cause we had a short day of only 240 miles. The final drive from Poplar Bluff to the Tennessee border was average at best. With the only real excitement being that we saw our first Cotton Fields. As we crossed the border from Missouri to Tennessee it changed for the better, with some fantastic hilly treed countryside. We really enjoyed the scenery and the drive. We drove through the SW corner of Tennessee with one of the real highlights being that we crossed the Mississippi River. The...

Al & Jan on the Road

May 23, 2012 - The Battle and Siege of Corinth, MS

Mon 5/21 OK – time to head to Corinth! We drove the 40 or so miles west on 72 from the Rose Trail campground in Cherokee, AL. Our first stop was the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center (the National Battlefield visitors center). The Center is new and they have done a great job with it. It is very unique having many bronze plates containing bullets, cap and cartridge boxes, etc., parts and pieces of Civil War guns, forage caps, haversacks, canteens, cups, knapsacks – all made of bronze and embedded in the sidewalk or on the ground as if...

Sep 7, 2009 - Aug. 19-21, 2009 Corinth, MS

Corinth RV Park and Gun Club The RV park in nice and has pretty nice sites. There is no office to pay at but there is an honor box to put your check in. I was kind of put off at fist but then the place kind of grew on me a bit. Friday evening and weekends the guys come over and shoot clay targets and we saw a few kids learning how to shoot. The place was peaceful and the people were nice that lived in the park. We did eventually talk to a guy who told us about some great places to visit while we were in the area. First we drove over to the...

May 19, 2007 - Late Night for the Codgers

From a new site, but still at J. P. Coleman State Park, near Iuka, in NE Mississippi. Yep, whereas Monday through Friday morning we were at the water's edge, we are now sitting on the hilltop looking out over the water & our former campsite circle. That previous campsite had been reserved for the weekend before we arrived, hence the necessity of us moving. After getting settled here, I like this hilltop site just as well, maybe a bit better except for the longer trek to the bath/shower house. We are in a section of four adjacent sites, but...

We're Wingin' It

Apr 15, 2006 - Walking Tall

The movie "Walking Tall",about a tough Southern Sherriff, has been made a number of times under a couple of titles over the Years. We have been through Adamsville,TN in McNairy County a few times without stopping. This weekend we took a drive down and visited the house Sheriff Bufford Pusser called home. The first "Walking Tall" with Joe Don Baker isprobably the most accurate interpretation of this man's life. Wounded a number of timesin the line of duty, his wife was killed when they were ambushed. He was responding to a report of...
