Oct 20, 2012 - Mammoth Cave NP & Shiloh Battlefield NMP

Yesterday, we visited and toured the Mammoth Cave Nat'l Park and stayed at their campground. The cave complex is the largest know in the world, with over 340 miles explored to date, and a suspected 600 miles total. Some of the caverns are huge as are some of the passageways. The rock formations aren't colorful and artistic as Luray and the Wind Caves, just everything is massive. Today we toured the Shiloh Battleground National Military Park. Is near Savannah, TN. After an amazing 49 min movie, we spent the next 2.5 hours touring the...

Sep 20, 2012 - Shiloh National Battlefield and Corinth, MS Battlefield

One of the really “nice things” about being on the road and not planning too far ahead is that in between planned visit to friends and family that are set dates, we can improvise and adapt our traveling plans. While in Clinton, Fred mentioned that we had not made it to The Shiloh National Battlefield Monument yet, so why didn’t we go up there for a couple nights, see the park and then head northwest to our next destination. Therefore, 267 miles later after leaving Avery, Chad, and Katherine’s home, we pulled into a Passport America...

Nov 8, 2011 - Shiloh National Military Park

Being “stuck” here in Red Bay allows us to check out some things we might not have seen otherwise. And, today’s outing falls into that category. We saw the Shiloh National Military Park was just north of here, it’s a nice day; so off we drove! For you Civil War buffs, you know the Battle of Shiloh was one of the most remembered of the Civil War. It was the battle that demonstrated to both North and South the war would be a longer and harder fight than either side imagined. Shiloh National Military Park is set along the western shore of the...

Nov 8, 2011 - Addendum to Shiloh National Military Park

Many of you have met our friend Nan - some from when we all worked together, and others from the website and our recent visit to Nan and Rudy's beautiful home north of Huntsville. Well, Nan just read our post about Shiloh National Military Park and the haunting poem I included in the post - she not only identified the name and author to this poem, but also provided me with a website to see the poem in its entirity and a history about the poem. The name is "Bivouac of the Dead", written by Theodore O'Hara - written in memory of the...

Nov 20, 2010 - Shiloh National Military Park

Well, we have diverted somewhat from what we thought we’d be doing this week. The weather turned colder so we thought it best to extend for another night in the little campground near Lawrenceburg. After Monday and Tuesday nights at a couple Wal-Marts, we wanted a campground to recharge our batteries and dump our tanks. Gene found a tiny campground off US 64 about 7 miles east of Lawrenceburg. It was nothing special, but it wasn’t a junk yard either. With the Passport America rate of $12/night for full hook-ups, it almost can’t be beat....

Apr 14, 2008 - JP Coleman and Shiloh

JP Coleman is another nice somewhat remote State Park. It is located on Pickwick Lake in the very top northeast corner of Mississippi. In the distance up the lake, you can see Tennessee , and just on the other side of the peninsula across the lake from our campsite is Alabama. Our campsite was right on the edge of the lake with a pretty view. Campsites along the lake are fairly close together but we had plenty of room. We enjoy State Parks especially ones like this with full hook-ups. They usually provide plenty of areas to walk our dog...

May 20, 2007 - Shiloh National Military Park

To be our seventh night from J P Coleman State Park, near Iuka, in the NE corner of Mississippi. First & foremost, I've just realized from a Guestbook comment from Steve that the map with this journal was in error for a few hours this afternoon as to our location for the May 19th entry. I had erred in entering our location on the journal, selecting Michigan rather than Mississippi. My goof; THANKS Steve for letting me know. We have been off & on about putting the bird feeders out at our different stops; sometimes the hummingbird nectar...
