I have been digging around in boxes looking for my set of tapes of "The Natchez Trace: The Road through the Wilderness". It's a narrated drive along the Trace, with history and stories of events along the road. It's probably pretty corny for some people, but I enjoyed making each stop over a few drives between Jackson, MS, and Nashville, TN. Also, the novelist, Nevada Barr, is a park ranger for the National Parks, of which the Trace is one, and she has at least one mystery set on the Natchez Trace.

We're going to New Orleans after Christmas instead of Florida. We decided to fly, rather than deal with the weather we're supposed to be slammed with on the weekend.

Laissez les bontemps rouler, non? Mais oui!

Natchez will be a pretty place to spend Christmas. Likely closed that day, the Visitor's Center in Natchez on the Mississippi is not your stereotypical Welcome Center. Instead it's a really good, very impressive interpretive center and first class introduction to the city and it's people.

Since I'll be in New Orleans for a while I sent the mail to my temporary address there.

See you in 'Nawlins.

I don't know if you like the coast or not, Sergei, but I've really enjoyed boondocking directly on the beach at Padre Island National Seashore, on the barrier island just across the causeway from Corpus Christi, Texas. '










If you make it to Central Texas, please be sure to drop me a note, I'd love to meet you, see your rig, and hear all about your fascinating experiences!

Merry Christmas!
-Marcus

Marcus,

I will be coming to Austin sometime next month. I will contact you later.

Parking on the beach seems cool. Tonight I am having a wine and cheese pre Christmas evening, parked on the beautiful campus of Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge.

The staff and students have all gone home for the holidays and I have the peaceful place all to myself.

Sergei

You might actually need the A/C a little this week in CC.

Not cool as in too cold. Too cool as in very neat.

Yes.


As of this hour we are seeing the first rain in three months and the temps will dip. Cold is 40F in this area (where the USA leaves off, but Texas continues another 150-miles south), and the weather great until mid-April.
