Southaven, Mississippi Day 4 GA464)

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 18, 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.

 

 

Yesterday was once again both hot and humid. About 85 degrees and % humidity. The Weather Wimp…as Mary calls me, says… Triple Yuk!!!

 

 

Mary decided she wanted to see an acupuncturist to try to relieve her pain. Due to faulty instructions and poor signage it took about 1.5 hours and 50 miles of driving to find him. She had about a one hour treatment. Returning directly to the motorhome still took 50 minutes and 24 miles. By time we returned it well after 1:00 PM and because it was so hot and humid didn’t feel like doing any sightseeing. We spent the afternoon and evening sitting in our chairs outside and reading.

 

 

She got a good night’s sleep and this morning is indicating she’s feeling noticeably better.

 

 

Since our little activity day, I’ve only got three photos for today. The first two are of the beautiful memorial here at VFW Post #10567 in Southaven, Mississippi…

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…

001

 

 

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.

 

 

Enjoying friendly VFW Posts is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

This entry was posted April 15, 2013…

Note: I’m now in the Memphis, Tennessee area.  Mary has made her flight reservations. She arrives at 5:59 PM tomorrow.

————————————————————————————————————–

For the past several weeks I’ve been indicating that I was slowly heading towards Memphis. Well, I’m here…kinda sorta…after driving the motorhome the about 50 miles from Lula to Southaven, Mississippi.

 

 

The below Google Earth image shows my situation. The airport is marked APT and is about three miles away. Memphis is clearly shown only 10 miles away. I’m currently parked at the very friendly VFW Post #10567…only about 1/4 mile from the Tennessee Border shown by the red line…

 

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

I arrived about 11:30 AM yesterday morning and found folks preparing for a state district meeting. Commander Johnny Weber welcomed me and indicated I should park at the back of the building where I could take advantage of an electrical hookup…which makes life a little more comfortable…

011

 

 

 

 

 

and the view from the dinette window…

007

 

 

I spent the better part of the afternoon doing some Internet research on potential visiting stops and routes as we’ll start to head towards New England after departing from here.

 

 

The bar opened at 4:00 PM and shortly thereafter…in I  went. I ended up sitting next to the Post Quartermaster Harry Ross and out-going State Commander James Chapman. I got to telling them the story of how I had recently changed my post membership to #4224 in Baker, Louisiana and also becoming a VFW Life Member.

 

 

 

 

 

I asked Harry, as Quartermaster, if he happened to have in stock any Life Member vehicle plates. He indicated no…they had to be ordered from the catalog. The next thing I knew Commander James asking the barmaid if she had a screwdriver…which she did. He asked Harry to take his Life Member plate off of his truck and give it to me. Can you believe that? So, outside we went to get the deed accomplished. In the below photo, Harry is on the left and James on the right…

014

 

 

Harry told me of how three out of the last four State Commanders have come out of this post. A most interesting fact!

 

 

 

 

 

The front of the post…015

 

 

 

 

 

As we went back inside I took this photo…

017

 

 

 

 

 

Members of the Ladies Auxiliary were there as well…having lots of fun…

023

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a photo of the Life Member plate which is now proudly attached to the front of the motorhome…

026

 

 

Thanks James…the plate will always have special meaning for me!

 

 

Today’s planned activities include stopping in at both Tennessee and Memphis Visitors Centers to pickup brochures about places we may want to visit while in this area. Also a long overdue haircut and searching out some used book stores to replenish my dwindling supply of books.

 

 

I expect we will be here for about 10 days exploring the Memphis area.

 

 

Enjoying friendly VFW Posts is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

————————————————————————————————————–

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 100 miles from Greenville to Lula, Mississippi.

 

 

With the exception of the last five miles all of the travel was on Mississippi Highway 1…also called the Great River Road…

 

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

About six miles north of Greenville I stopped at the Winterville Mounds Park and Museum…

005

 

 

Winterville is one of the largest Native American mound sites in the United States. The people who built these massive earthworks were part of the Mississippi culture that flourished nearly one thousand years ago. Important structures such as temples and the homes of the highest-ranking members of society were built atop the mounds. Known as Mound A, the tallest mound in this park, at 55 feet is roughly the same height as a five-story building.

 

 

You can read about this park at their official website…

Here are some of the photos that I took…

As you can see in the above photos, there is no shoulder along the road. I missed probably about a dozen old building photos like this one because there was no safe place to stop…

038

 

 

 

 

 

I’m in the heart of the Mississippi Blues Music Country which I will openly admit I am not a fan and consequently know nothing about. I saw a number of buildings similar the Last Call Bar and Grill…

031

 

 

As I passed through the little hamlet of Rosedale, I looked for the marker, but could not find it. According to local legend, a young musician by the name of Robert Johnson sold his soul to the Devil at the crossroads of Mississippi Highways 1 and 8 to achieve success. He died at age 27…hmmm. You can read about the legend by clicking this Wikipedia informational link…

I spent a quiet and peaceful night at the Delma Firmiss Hospitality Center at Lula…

I’ll depart for Memphis, Tennessee later this morning.

This entry was posted April 13, 2013…

Note: I’m now expecting to arrive in Memphis tomorrow.  Mary has made her flight reservations. She’ll meet me in Memphis on April 16th.

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 100 miles from Vicksburg to Greenville, Mississippi.

 

 

Most of the travel was on Mississippi Highway 1…also called the Great River Road…

The scenery (or lack thereof) was disappointing with little other than sameness. Little caught my attention to photograph along the way…

Vicksburg, Mississippi Day 7 (GA458)

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

Note: I’m now expecting to arrive in Memphis on April 14th….about 250 miles north of Vicksburg. Mary has made her flight reservations. She’ll meet me in Memphis on April 16th.

The motorhome is parked at Moose Lodge #1581. I expect to depart here later this morning.

 

 

Vicksburg has a very interesting history which you can read about by clicking this Wikipedia link…
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vicksburg,_Mississippi

 

 

For my final blog entry I’m going to share with you a somewhat unusual business called the Tomato Place. Owner Luke was busy in the kitchen while his daughter Mallorie was busy behind the counter and both had little time to talk. I did find out this old funky roadside-type fruit stand has been there for 12 years. They make an assortment of breads, jellies, jams, pies, cookies, etc…that seems to be real popular with the local folks.

 

 

Here’s their website link…

The Vicksburg Visitors Center even features them in their booklet…

They are located just a couple of miles south of Vicksburg at 3229 Hwy 61. Stop in…you won’t be disappointed!

 

 

If you have never visited Vicksburg, I highly encouraged you to do so. It’s a place you will not soon forget.

 

 

Enjoying interesting places is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
