Aug 4, 2018 - Started the day with an . . . Oops!!!
We did make it to Tishomingo State Park and I do have a phone signal so I am able to update my journal tonight! I did not expect it, especially after all the time we spent out of cell phone range the past week! Yay Mississippi! The morning did start out with an oops . . . We missed a turn. I don't know how we missed it! But miss it we did! We were looking forward to the route taking us thru the Shiloh National Militatry Battlefields. Someone said it was so beautiful and historic. Stopped to take the photo of the sign and then just totally...Jump to full entry
May 9, 2011 - Nashville to Tishomingo State Park,MS.
Well the official day two of our trip. On our way to New Orleans via the Natchez Trace. Our destination is the Tishomingo, MS State Park about 150 miles from Nashville. We stopped at the Meriwether Lewis burial site. He was 35 when he died. Can you imagine all the things he accomplished in his life and he died at 35? Man I'm 71 and not even close. We had a 4 hour trip and stayed at Tishomingo. So to get to the campground is almost 2 miles off the Trace and all down hill. Narrow paved winding roads. Then most of the sites are on a hill...Jump to full entry
Apr 8, 2011 - To Tishomingo, MS
Today, we circle Nashville, then head south on I65. We hate the traffic and the interstate. Once away from the city, we get off the interstate at Spring Hill. Where can we have breakfast? We ask two moms talking in a parking lot. “The best place is the Old School Café. I’ll show you the way.” We ask if it is far. Since the drive requires only two turns, we decline the escort and easily find a great place for breakfast. People can be so nice! We head west to the Natchez Trace Parkway. The parkway is in great shape. The dogwood trees are in...Jump to full entry
May 28, 2008 - Tishomingo State Park, MS
Wednesday, May 28th, We awoke to clear skies and the sounds of millions of 18-wheelers. I had forgotten there is a truck stop directly across the highway. They are all pulling out one right after the other. Luckily we can take a right entering the highway or we might have had to sit there a long time trying to turn left. We drove on with no complications and made it to the Trace. There are only a limited number of places to camp on the Natchez Trace with several of them being State Parks. We would hike all of the Points of Interest and...Jump to full entry
Oct 4, 2006 - It was a 3-state day! 86 miles
We had a chilly 50°start at 7am just as the sun was rising. Because of the long day ahead, we wanted all the cool temperatures possible as well as much daylight as we could to complete our projected 84 miles. Today was a day of lots of sighted road kill (armadillo, opossum, skunk, snake and turtles) with one white-tailed deer and lots of squirrels as our "live" mammal sightings. We continued to have long periods of quiet with sounds of birds calling intermittently. We suspect the loudest of these calls are Pileated Woodpeckers. The puffball...Jump to full entry
