We drove 410 today to get to Gulfport, Ms. It was a good day, but we are all ready to be home.

We will be home tomorrow and Lori and Teri will have dinner for us, so excited to see everyone!! It has been a great adventure sad to see it end!

Grand Canyon 4-2011

Dec 16, 2010 - Mississippi Gulf Coast

WOW...what a site even 5 years after hurricane Katrina. We spent many days driving around seeing the devastation that is still so visible. Hundreds and hundreds of lots of prime real estate right across the street (Hwy 90) from the water are vacant and for sale. Most homes and businesses have chosen not to rebuild there. We were told that a 20-24 foot wall of water hit that area. Before the hurricane, casinos were not allowed to have their gaming areas on land so were built on barges sitting on the water. Those barges smashed into the...

Oct 22, 2010 - Gulf Coast Area, Mississippi

We left the New Orleans area on Thursday, October 22nd and drove a few hours to the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. We stayed at the Buccaneer State Park for three nights. This state park has a nice campground that was not too far from the beach. We stayed at this campground for three nights. We went to the beach and saw the oil cleanup crews working. The beaches were opened and we did not see any evidence of oil in the sand or water. We drove to Gulfport and took a ferry for an eleven mile trip out to Ship’s Island where we enjoyed the...

Sep 21, 2010 - I Can't Bridge the Gap

9/21 I Just Can’t Bridge The Gap The Jimmy Dykes State Park where we camped last night was a fantastic find; all of the sites had level asphalt pads AND, get this, a wooden deck with a built in grill! All of the sites were staggered so you didn’t feel like other campers surrounded you. We took advantage of their great laundromat and caught up on our washing. The state park also provided free wifi!! Louisiana really does a nice job with their parks and Florida needs to take a lesson from them on how to provide a great camping experience....

Apr 27, 2009 - Happy Birthday Debi

We started the day early with breakfast and Debi opening birthday cards. After that we got dressed and started to day. Our first trip we all, george, Debi and Heidi, drove down to the local Uhaul to fill two bottles with propane. I needed to fill the BBQ bottle and I wanted to top off the second bottle on the camper. We returned and then took Heidi for a walk since we were going to the commissary and base exchange. I also told Debi I would take her to a local casino for lunch. I must say all the food was good but the Shrimp was huge!!!!!...

Apr 26, 2009 - Moving day - Gulfport MS

We departed the Cajun Palms RV park around 8:30 this morning in route to Gulfport. I must say for as many people that were camping in the park the staff did a great job of keeping the noise down during quite hours. It was very enjoyable place to stay. Well we took off and little it would be Debi HELL for a number of miles as we drove over miles and miles of swamp land. As soon as we would get back to land on both sides of the road it was over a river or swamp we would cross. I must say it was impressive crossing the mighty Mississippi...

Mar 16, 2009 - Mississippi Gulf Coast

One last view of the Gulf of Mexico during these few days in the Gulfport / Biloxi Mississippi area. It rained the whole time we were here ... ain't that nice???? We did manage to drive up off the coast a few miles to see where our favorite Green Bay Packer of the past decade grew up ... Kiln MS ... the birthplace of Brett Favre. We drove up and down the coast here in the area ... and were stunned to see the left overs from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina of 2005. It is so obvious that this area was nearly completely devastated from...

Winter '09

Dec 2, 2008 - Mechanics - yuck!

So I got the tire changed - and still hear noise. Told everyone it sounded like tire noise - but the mechanics insist I have a bad wheel bearing. But - out on Interstate 0, with a baby (my grandson) in the car... flat tire. The one I DIDN'T replace blew out - just sort of disintegrated. Luckily for Road Service - they put on the donut. Then I got another $32 tire and guess what - no more "wheel bearing" noise!

Nov 19, 2008 - Arrived in Gulfport, MS

Finally arrived in Gulfport. My plans to stop and dive Ginnie Springs and possible snorkel with Manatees is out the window. I am sore from the accident and just need to get better. I drove pretty much straight through - stopping once in the Orlando area. Found an RV park near where my son lives with his family. Now - some rest?

Mar 20, 2008 - Gulfport, Mississippi

Thursday,Mar.20 Today we traveled from Vicksburg to Gulfport. Right now, we're planning on staying in this area for a week. There appears to be a lot to do here. It's late now, so I'll post more tomorrow to this same entry, as I did on the Vicksburg entry. Friday,Mar.21 We checked out the Gulfport area today. Went along US90 by the beach to see what kind of disaray Katrina's damage might be in. Lots of construction going on. Lots of empty slabs of concrete also. Several new buildings. We shopped in several buisnesses in town, and that's...

Mar 14, 2008 - Gulfport, Mississippi Baywood RV Park

We stayed at Baywood Campground-RV Park. It was a nice campground. It had alot of hurricane families residing there. We took a drive a mile away to the beach area and were overcome by the amount of damage in this area. Lots of places only had cement steps left and no buildings at all. A lot of new construction was going on to replace some of what was destroyed. Since it's been over a year since Katrina hit, a lot of the areas have been cleared and/ or cleaned up at least. There are still a lot of half-demolished houses and businesses left...
