Road Trip, Week 4: The South

View Larger Map

  • Driving Tunes: All country, all the time (with lots of Willie Nelson)
  • Books: The Help -Kathryn Stockett;  Treasure Island -Robert Louis Stevenson;  And There Was Light -Jacques Lusseyran
  • Wildlife: Turtles, a 15-foot gator, dolphins
  • Food: A 22-dish meal at The Wilkes House, which rightly made the cut in 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, fried catfish, fried green tomatoes, fried plantains, a deep-fried Moon Pie (are you sensing a theme here); an old-fashioned cream soda float; 35 flavors of Coke; a peanut butter and banana sandwich in honor of the King
  • Sights that didn't quite make the blog: Tennessee's rolling hills, the Nashville music scene, Savannah's sleepy squares, Bonaventure Cemetery mossy macabre; Charleston's plantation homes and gardens; Fort Sumter in all it's tiny glory;  the Double-A Asheville Tourists/Moonshiners bringing my home team record up to 4-0 for this trip      
  • Friends: Nathan and Hope Wertz; Linda, Mark, and Sam Shaw
