Looking Forward

Yep, I am really looking forward to our next road trip in a few weeks - the land of Dixie.  From my research for the weird and unusual, I have 93 possible sites to seek out, not that we will hit everyone of them.  But they will help to layout the route we will take along the back roads of the deep South. 

I don't know if it is that I have grown to be picky about what to see, but after awhile it seemed that the South didn't have as much that interested me as did the Great Plains states.  I am not keen on seeing "The World's Largest Alligator in Captivity" (and there was more than one that laid claim to that).  In fact there were several sites regarding animals behind bars.  They are not getting my dollars.

On the other hand I suspect what I'll see in between each point of interest will probably be the most interesting part of the tour.  Whereas the Great Plains states provided all corn, sunflower and soy bean fields, the South, well I don't know what really to expect.  

And that is the best part of the adventure.
