Mar 4, 2008 - Gulfport, Mississippi

Tuesday March 4...10:50pm Finally time to get back on the road! Had a great sleep last night. Well, after the huge thunderstorm passed through our way. On the local TV station they were calling for a tornado warning with possibility of large hail...and that was only about 40 miles north of us. We didn't get anything that bad, but we did get a bad thunderstorm around 10:30pm ...windy with lots of rain and lightning. Whiskey was scared and she wouldn't stop shaking. But after that, I slept right through till 7am or so. It's still a little...

Feb 14, 2008 - Day 2 - From Florida to Mississippi

February 14, 2008 We left Sunset King Lake Resort at around 8:45 a.m. and arrived early at our destination after a trip of 236 miles.

For dinner we took advantage of their special Valentine Day buffet. They...

Also went to Dolly's gas station and the Broke Spoke (a Packer bar) At both...

Nov 15, 2007 - after the storm

We left the Destin area after a visit with Marshell, Dave's cousin. Very windy day. It isn't helping that I started reading James Lee Burke's "Tin Roof Blowdown" - a detective novel set in New Orleans in the days right after Katrina. I keep looking around to see if anyone else is nervous - but nobody is, so I guess it's just windy. We drove Interstate 10 across the little bit of Alabama that touches the Gulf (Mobile) and then in to the little bit of Mississippi that touches the Gulf. At Gulfport, we dropped down to the gulf highway...and...
