MID SOUTH TIDBITS to VISIT WHILE TRAVLING (HISTORY)
Oh, I understand. l hadn't read the other thread.
Well, supposedly you can wade around in shallow parts of our Lake Chatuge
and pick up rubies and saphires.
there looks like there is a lot to do we will be looking at it later when the younging get in .
Riverland, I've been to poverty point, A great archeological site.
Sarge you neglected to mention one of your famous sites. The Bell Witch Cave by Clarksville. Been there too. I swear she followed us all the way thru Tenn all because i stole a rock from her cave.
Arkansas has a diamond mine open to public. A state park on top of a mountain. MT Magazine. 2 national forests, and Hot Springs,
guess you ott not took that rock had you ? he he he ....
We have a local Cave called Ben White Cave but is close temp. for now due to the white fungus thing on bats noses so it dont spread. several caves round here are.
Arkansas has a diamond mine open to public... watched this on discovery chanel the other day or travle chanel that was pretty cool.
I've never heard of Poverty Point. Sounds interesting. You don't want to go to the Diamond Mine in the summer. It's one big open field of dirt with no shade. It's a spring or fall thing.
Given By A KY Friend,
they have lil white catfish in the water with no eyes lol
Benn a long time since i have been there.
thats a good one to visit
Sarge, we are just 'down the road' from you near Huntsville, AL. Have taken rides on the motorcycle near you. We often run up to Bell Buckle TN. It's what we used to call a 'poke and plumb' town....by the time you poke your head out the car window, you're plumb out of town! But the Bell Buckle cafe is wonderful. There are several small shops that are worth browsing and an old drugstore that sells wonderful hand-dipped icecream.
Huntsville has the Space and Rocket Center which is really interesting, plus a museum, a hands-on science center mostly for kids, an old RR Depot, Early Works (children's learning center and museum about Alabama) and of course a Botanical Garden.
E'llo come on by and say Hello at my Front Porch and meet some New Folks !

The Mobile area has Bellingrath Gardens and Home, USS Alabama Battleship Park, and Civil War forts Blakeley, Gaines, and Morgan. The downtown area has the old live oaks and antebellum and victorian houses.
thank you we get down that way often that will be a good stop for our family since we have a 4 & 13 Yr old and are doing Home Schooling
Jcalhoun, I drove thru MISS.,ALA.,GEOR,and NC several years ago just to see the country. Drove on secondary roads all the way. I missed my turnoffs so many times because i was looking at the beautiful old houses instead of roadsigns. I also learned to go to the police station for dirctions. They know the roads and give good directions.
I use my GPS every where we Go Thanks to Uncle Sam (did not swipe it ) bought it ! it is a nice one about the only thing it wont do for you is drive lol.
Oh sarge, GPS does'nt work right here in the forest. Someone tried and ended up in the middle of nowhere.
I love printed state maps. When i go somewhere I want to know what all is around me.(Fraid i'll miss something.)LOL
i stil carry my atlas with me just in case lol
