1800 miles and counting...

Well, we finally did it. We have been sitting at home with our new (to us) 2009 22 ft. Sport since last February. We did a re-caulking job on it, washed and waxed it, and have been waiting ever since...We finally had the chance to take an 8 day trip from Texas to Tenn. to see hubbys brother and family for Thanksgiving so we chose to wander at a somewhat slow pace through Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. We stopped in Louisiana for two days at Frenchmen's Wilderness Campground (a Good Sam park) It was a pretty good campground for a private one. Very clean restrooms. We took the opportunity to go see a couple of plantations on the River road. Wow.
Next stop-Roosevelt state park in Miss. Very quiet and pretty. Price: 20.00 for all hookups and 30 amp. We then took the Natchez Trace at 50 mph. What a wonderful respite from the 18 wheelers. We stopped at Tishomingo State park which is right off the Trace. No sewer but water and electric. These parks were built by the CCC and have wonderful buildings. We saw an old swinging bridge which was at a trailhead. The sign said " No more than 5 people at a time on Bridge!" Yikes! But, we crossed it. In November right before Thanksgiving there aren't too many people in these parks, which was great! Cost: 18.00 These state parks beat many private parks on price AND beauty, in my humble opinion. Driving the Trace is a lovely experience if you aren't in a hurry. Finally arriving in Athens, Alabama we stayed at the fairly new Northgate RV park right off the freeway. A good place if you just want to park somewhere with no trees. The water pressure is very good and the owner very nice. Free Wi-Fi. The only downside to our trip was actually driving through Louisiana-the I-10 freeway into that state from Texas should be condemned. So should most of the drivers. Nuff said on that point. We can't wait to get back out and this time I will remember to bring all of the stuff we forgot! Remember to support your State Parks!
