Mississippi Road Trip

by Kay~Kacey on 3/3/2010

Now don’t be trash talkin’ my Mississippi, ’cause we used to have this cute little farm there in Carriere, Mississippi…right out of Picayune :D But I still thought I’d share some thoughts of a road trip in Mississippi. We took highway 55 the length of the state.

mississippi-5732We have fond memories of driving through Mississippi with all the boys in the car, going back and forth from Mississippi or on our trips to Gulf Shores. Like the first time my oldest glanced up at this road sign and said “WHAT did that say???” :crazy:  Yep, at a quick glance it DOES look like it says that, doesn’t it??


Or when we drive past this and one of the boys is sure to nudge his brother and say “what does that remind you of?” :rofl: Ah, boys will be boys.


The mistletoe grows wild in the trees there, gathering in big clumps on the now bare branches. I think SuperGuy should have stopped the car and kissed me under this tree, don’t you?? :love2: What a waste of all the mistletoe!

mississippi-5748 ..and I’m not trash talkin’ Mississippi here…but seriously…all their rest areas were closed. The entire length of the state.


Every. One. What is up with that?? It got to be a joke with us…luckily the car needed gas so SuperGuy finally gave me a bathroom break! :crazy:


We pass by our town. Pickens!! not  Yazoo City!! Silly people!!


Seriously? Foreign Trade Zone?? Who do they consider foreign? Arkansas??


You drive along for miles with the tall “pahnz” along side the road. (we call them pines up north…) Very pretty. Notice the definite lack of snow on the ground. Even prettier! We love Mississippi with the slower life style, the kind people, the cute accents. Sigh.

Well, there you have it. It’s not every day that you get to read a travelogue of a road trip through Mississippi. You heard it here first, folks!

Our lovely state of Virginia closed a few roadside rest areas as well. It’s known as ‘budget cuts’. No more indoor plumbing for weary road travelers anymore until the economy is up and running again I guess.

We’re heading to MS over Easter Break. Biloxi, to see a friend who runs one of the big casinos there. And the rest stations had better be open by then!!

Maybe those foreigners are those crazy Cajuns from Looziana (I can say that since I’m related to some of them *g*).

Yazoo City. What a great name!

Better you than me. I grew up south of New Orleans and love Mississippi, but traveling through is enough to drive me crazy. I’ve gone Yankee in my old age.
