Tuesday April 3- I slept in past 8:00 AM. The storms made for a restless night. It was still raining. I got ready for the day and drove to the Gnawbone Coffee Shop just down the street. Gnawbone is the name of the small unincorporated community where the RV park is. I had asked how […]

It had rained all night again Sunday until early Monday morning April 2. The ground was saturated. The weight of my steps forced muddy water to ooze out from between the stones of the paved site. My first chore of the morning was to catch up on the laundry. I had enough for two medium […]

I decided to use Saturday to hang out at the RV and organize a few things. In an RV you try not to accumulate anything extra. When you do it’s time to sort and toss. I also worked online again. Later I watched Monster Zero Vs. Godzilla on Svengoolie. New neighbors had moved in […]

Friday March 30- It was another rainy day. I was unaware of the number of distilleries in the Elizabethtown area. The Kentucky Bourbon Trail weaves its way through the countryside. There are over thirty distilleries that can be visited including Jim Beam, Woodford Reserve, and Makers Mark. I set my sights on Maker’s Mark. […]

I had looked at a map Saturday and randomly selected Hohenwald, Tennessee as my next destination. I did not know what was there or how I would get there. The travel time was right, about 6 1/2 hours. I made reservations at Fall Hallow Campground. Hohenwald is German for high forest. Maybe the German name […]

Wednesday March 21 was the day I drove to Jackson, MS to get a new sewer hose. That was all I did. No sightseeing. I covered that in a previous blog. At least I had found a place to get a good cup of coffee at Caffe Paradiso. That and flushing my tanks were the […]

I arrived at the Vicksburg National Military Park late Monday morning March 19th. It was eighty five degrees and humid. My first stop was the visitor’s center for a quick orientation. I spent two hours at the center. The 20 minutes movie about the Siege of Vicksburg was very good. I recommend starting there. The […]

I left my friends in Chattanooga on Sunday March 18th. Travel from Chattanooga (Wildwood, GA actually) to Vicksburg was a straight shot on the Interstate, I-24 west to I-59 south to I-20 west. I crossed Georgia, and Alabama under gray skies. The gray skies turned to heavy rains as soon as I crossed into Mississippi. […]

The meaning of life, the universe, and everything has been solved. Forty two, right? Beyond that lies the mystery of coffee. I stopped at a coffee shop to contemplate the depths and varieties of coffees. Coincidentally I stepped into “Hipsterville”. The wide open floor space of the cafe held six tables three with single occupants, […]
