What a great trip, from the headwaters of the Mississippi to it’s mouth 2215 miles. From the backroads and highways well traveled and new, we’ve seen so much of our beautiful country driving through the mid section it was just awesome. Jim and I have never been through Mississippi or Louisiana before, such a rich history the south has. So many different cultures from the French and Spanish to Creoles and Africans. From slavery to freedom, a Civil War, hurricanes, loss and recovery.
We’ve seen gas prices from $3.69 in Minnesota to $3.19 in Louisiana. We had more sunny days than cloudy.
We’ve eaten most of our meals at local spots, from Minnesota Walleye to Louisiana Catfish.
We’ve met new people and caught up with old friends.
Thanks to our traveling buddies for another enjoyable trip. Thanks to everyone who’s been following along and those who’ve just discovered us.
Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Judy and Jim
