Apr 25, 2016 - Mississippi Gulf Coast

2016-04-25.Buccaneer State Park, Waveland, MS Mississippi – Next to last on our quest to visit all 49 “accessible” states; though Bob claims that Donald Trump will build a bridge to Hawaii and make someone else pay for it and we will be able to get there once he is elected. (That is NOT to say that either of us would consider voting for him and apologies to those of you who may) The Gulf Coast of Mississippi is lovely, especially considering the devastation of Hurricane Katrina only 11 years ago. We stayed at Buccaneer State Park outside of...

May 29, 2011 - Around The Campsite

Friday, May 27, 2011--Waveland Mississippi Now that we are back camping in state parks, as opposed to private RV parks, we can resume our hobby of “camper watching.” Yesterday, a 35 foot, (at least), camper pulled in next to us. They had an identical truck as ours, even the same color. Debbie was out doing laundry and shopping. When the dogs heard the sound of the truck, they thought: “Moms home!” and got all excited. Oh well, they were fooled again. The reason I mention this was watching the fellow back into a rather tight campsite. The...

May 25, 2011 - Mississippi

Wednesday, May 25, 2011--Waveland, Mississippi Move day yesterday. We moved eastward on Interstate 10. 197 miles total and just under four hours on the road. This was a little further than usual, but my health held out O.K. Road conditions were fair. Some areas of the road were very rough, but we kind of expected that. I-10 is known to have rough spots. The real rough spot was the entrance road to the park. Buccaneer State park is located right on the Gulf of Mexico, and took major hit from Hurricane Katrina. The road was completely...

Feb 21, 2010 - Stennis Space Ctr NASA

After stopping in Styyk River ROD park in Robertsdale, Al (which was a quite run down park) I drove on and ended up at this marvelous overnite site at the John Stennis NASA Space Center park on the western end of I 10 in Mississippi. What a lovely area and special turnouts all paved across from the truck parking lot. Truly was a marvelous find in park setting with paved roads and lots of grass and trees.

Nov 30, 2009 - We finally reached the Gulf Coast

We enjoyed our stay at Okatoma Resort and RV Park, but we were anxious to keep moving. Today we would finally reach the Gulf Coast. I found a casino RV park right on the Gulf. Well sort of. There is a road between us and the beach, but it's close enough. Many times casino parks are an economical place to stay. On the face of it, this one not so much, at $35 a night. But by signing up for the Players Card, we would get a coupon for one free night. So two nights here would actually cost us $17.50 a night. Of course, that does not factor in...

Nov 11, 2008 - Waveland I

We have arrived in Waveland, and the weather is wonderful. A slight breeze out of the west. Temps in the low 70s, but very pleasant. As we came through New Orleans, we were amazed at the looks of the city. Much of the desolation that we'd seen earlier, is gone, and the apartments are being lived in, along with the houses that have been repainted, and looks very nice. Here in Waveland, there is also lots of rebuilding going on. The city is still working on the roads, and making them a lot better. But, sadly, some of the houses are still...

May 15, 2008 - Looking For Trent Lott's Head

I spent some time today driving around Pascagoula, MS looking for Trent Lott’s head in a cage. Now, isn’t that something we’d all like to find? After driving up and down the same street several times, I realized that the address given by Roadside America was actually the address of Trent Lott Middle School. Now, I am not sure what this is about unless it’s a class project. If it is, I’d like to meet that kid. Anyway, I certainly wasn’t going to go in the school asking about it. I left there and started up the coast of MS. This place looks...

Feb 12, 2008 - Monday

We got up early, and hit the road for Waveland. Nice day to travel, mostly tailwinds until we headed west. But that was a short time in the direction. We arrived in Waveland about 1PM, got to the church, met the man in charge of parking, and got set up. We are parked at the same place that we always park, with that great view of the Gulf of Mexico. Just as we finished the setting up, Tony Dixon, the local coordinator stopped by, and got us organized to go to the house that we are going to be working on. Got to the house, and met lots of...

Jan 5, 2008 - Biloxi, MS

When we left Foley, AL on Thursday, we started on the scenic route: Route 98 along Mobile Bay ... beautiful homes on the water and a neat, little downtown in Fairhope. The rest of the drive, on I-10 was pretty uninteresting. When we arrived in Biloxi, MS, we drove miles and miles of Beach Blvd along the coast. The devastation from Hurricane Katrina in 2005 is incredible. Most of the rubble has been removed; where there were buildings or homes, there are mostly just slabs and foundations. Other places are boarded-up awaiting Biloxi's...
