Jun 4, 2017 - Southaven, MS.

Another 372 miles. Southaven, MS. is a southern suburb of Memphis, TN. Need a new navigator. Diana called to confirm a spot at a RV park and then gave directions to a different one. Luckily they had a spot and the reserved campground canceled without any hassle. We will be here for two nights. No more 300 plus miles in one day. We will be taking our time from now on. One thing we haven't mentioned is all the rain we have had since leaving AZ.

Sep 18, 2016 - Visiting a Mississippi cousin

My cousin Tony that we visited in 2010 is just a few hours away in northern Mississippi. We took scenic and small roads instead of going up to the interstate and over. It was raining again this morning, will it ever end? There was more Kudzu along the side of the road, overgrowing everything. We saw several smaller rivers that flowed into the Tennessee River. At one river crossing, in Florence Alabama, our GPS was going to take us over the O’Neil Bridge but at the last moment there were signs saying that no trucks or RV were allowed over...

Sep 15, 2014 - Southaven, MS

We stopped here just south of Memphis for a couple of nights. Unfortunately, we were not able to do much in the area – Bruce’s foot swelled up and turned a bright red. Since none of our known treatments have worked, we figure he got bitten by some insect or other critter in Branson. A clinic visit may be in order.

It is a short report today. We have long breakfast and visit with Ron. There is so much to talk about! After breakfast, we go shopping. We head back to the RV. I print some reports and balance our accounts. I have time to do the laundry. It is not an exciting day but sometimes we need to rest and take care of chores. Tomorrow we will be on the move again.

Nov 18, 2013 - Southaven, MS

We leave Arkansas and the weather is beautiful. We head east and cross the Mississippi River. We travel north on Highway 1 which the Great River Road. I am certain that we drove Highway 61 north two years ago. I try to remember why. At first, I decide that we knew we would not see the river. In the south, you see only the levees. Later, I remember that the Mississippi River was flooded two years ago. I am sure that was the reason we stayed inland. We decide to stop at the Great River Road State Park. “Didn‘t we try to stop here before?”...

Aug 10, 2011 - Travel day - Southaven, Mississippi

Travel day from Perryville, Missouri (Perryville Campground) to Southaven, Mississippi (E Z Daze RV Park). A little rain but not enough to worry about. The roads are very rough in Arkansas and also coming thru Memphis. Today we have been in four states - Left Missouri, drove thru Arkansas, Tennessee and finally to Mississippi. What a great country we have that we can travel from one state into another state without being in danger of policial and regilious wars. You will see a couple of pictures of Americana ..... small town and along the...

Apr 28, 2011 - To Southaven, MS

John finally gets to fish Lake Chicot. There are others at the dock. “What are those fish jumping?” “They’re just bass. We’re fishing for catfish!” To each their own. We were wise to stay an extra day in Lake Village. All of the news is about the severe weather that came through this area. Our friends near Memphis give the all clear. We cross back into Mississippi and head north on Route 61. We see Lake Front Yard, Lake Back Yard and Lake Corn Field. There has been a lot of rain here. Farming is a tough business. We try to stop at the Great...

Apr 28, 2011 - Moving North Along The Rising River

From E Z Daze RV Park – Southaven, MS First would like to say we were not in the path of the horrific tornado filled storms of yesterday that raced across the south and just devastated Alabama and also wrecked havoc on 4 other states. We had many friends call to check on us and we appreciated everyone’s concern. Moved a little further up the river today traveling 143 miles north to Southaven, MS……..Again, we had to change parks from our original reservations. However this was not due to the “condition” of the park we had intended on staying...

Home Sweet RV - 2011

Nov 5, 2009 - Southaven, MS

This trip was a little of work and play. I had to attend a Military Drill with an ATC unit that is deploying overseas in a few months. I have agreed to be their Safety Officer and am trying to get aquainted with their unit and people. We decided to go a day early and leave a day after the exercise so we could spend a little time in the camper. We arrived on Thursday and got everything set up. I contacted a friend of ours and invited him and his wife over for a good old fashioned steak grilling. I have included a couple a few pictures from...

Apr 22, 2009 - Southaven, MS - River Road and Tunica RiverPark

(Ron Writing) We spent most of today driving north on MS-1 which follows the east side of the Mississippi River through small towns and very large farms. It’s a very rural area. The towns are small and the farms are large. Farming is done with very large modern machinery so few workers are needed. This is some of the best farm land in the United States. The top soil is very rich and is about 40 feet thick! I can remember thinking the 2 to 3 feet of black topsoil in northwest Iowa was really something. This area is on the floodplain of the...
