Southaven, Mississippi Day 2 (GA462)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. I’m scheduled to depart September 24th.

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted April 16, 2013…

The motorhome is now parked at VFW Post #10567 in Southaven, Mississippi. The location is about 1/4 mile south of the Tennessee Border and about 10 miles south of the City of Memphis. We will stay here while we explore the Memphis area for the next several days.

 

 

Mary returns to me today. I’ll meet her at the airport at 6:00 PM.

 

 

Yesterday I ventured less than five miles into Tennessee. I went to the Memphis Visitors Center to pickup maps and brochures for things we may want to see and do while in the area. It’s interesting what happened. Crossing the state line and the slow southern way of life seem to disappear. Back into traffic and noise immediately. Hmmm….

 

 

The below Google Earth image shows my relative location to the Memphis area. The V is the location of VFW Post #10567 where I am currently parked. The red line indicates the Tennessee/Mississippi Border…

Shortly thereafter I was back in Mississippi and spent about three hours going to thrift and used book stores to replenish my dwindling supply of books. I saw something I have never seen before…a Goodwill Bookstore. It’s part of the Goodwill system…but at this store they sell only books. It was neat and clean and all the books are sorted by author which made it very pleasant to shop there. I bought several books…

I forgot to show you a photo I took while at the Delma Firmiss Hospitality Center at Lula, Mississippi a couple of nights ago. It was taken at midnight through the passenger-side windshield. I thought it made for a neat photo…

Today’s activities are expected to include…get a haircut…do laundry and pickup Mary.

 

 

Here’s (I guess) an interesting side note. The On The Road With Jim And Mary Blog has just passed the 2,000 followers mark. Current number is at 2,022. Thanks to all of you who follow along the road of life with us. We enjoy sharing our experiences with you vicariously.

 

 

Here’s another side note…
RVTravel.com publishes several Blogs that offer news, information and tips about the RVing World…all for free! In yesterday’s RV Daily Tips Issue 101, On The Road With Jim And Mary was identified as Website of the Day.
