March 2023

Nancy and I are beginning this blog to share with family members and friends but to also remember the travels and adventures ourselves.  Before finding this great resource and starting adventures, we managed to squeeze in a couple of "short" trips (Deb's intense career - more than just a job) did not allow for much time off.  

Prior Trips and Fun: 

August 2021: Hiking Greeter Falls, nature preserve in Grundy County, Tennessee (the "Stone Door" is an amazing rock formation that took us time to locate ' cause it ain't a door!)

October 2021: Berea, Kentucky (who knew the "first integrated, co-educational college in the South" is located there?) and hiking at Cumberland Falls (a beautiful state park in Kentucky)

April 2022: An impromptu (read unplanned but fun) Tennessee road trip to several small communities (Leper's Fork, the Natchez Trace Parkway, Fairview, Savannah, Clifton, Waynesboro, etc. We found two great hotels - neat, clean and friendly.  We had a great dinner at Hagy's, a catfish hotel - lucked out by being early and missing a crowd of diners!)

September/October 2022:  a trip to Eufaula, OK to visit with Deb's sister and family (BTW - OK owns the nickname of "dust bowl" - it had been a very dry season.) 

February 2023: a trip to see the eagles at Reelfoot State Park, Tiptonville, TN (we could not go up for the Eagle Festival over the weekend but still enjoyed a great cabin, some minimal hiking - it was cold and drizzily - and a tour with the park rangers.  Bald eagles are majestic and amazing.)

March 2023 was pretty slow for travel - mid-south weather in the spring can be unfriendly to being outside.  One of us does "do" cruises and the report on a warm March (March 18-29 to the Caribbean) cruise will be coming up.  In the meantime, let March go out like a lion as the weatherman is predicting for the mid-south!  Be safe.
