I know, and I was planning this whole thing out since March! And it was the plane ticket (for 1, me) and the rental car that did the whole plan in. And the worst part is nobody would help me out, and because I know nobody out there, I was even called naive!

Hold on! I may have spoken too soon! I could still go to Jackson and venture to Vicksburg and such at a lower price in some places. We shall see.

Default There has been Compromise!

I'm still going to Mississippi! It will be 4 days instead of 5 however I will see if I can make it a little longer, and it will mostly center on the whole Vicksburg, Natchez, Raymond, Port Gibson region!

Central Virginia. I know it is upper south (gateway to the south) and far from the deep south but many Civil War battlefields and information are found throughout the state. Richmond has the Confederate whitehouse and other confederate capital memorials throughout the city while Appomatox VA has memorials for where the Civil war ended.

Some of the stops will be battlefields and plantation homes.

I'm in southeastern LA now, Desert Kid, and this is still one of the best areas of the South to see if you fancy old history; grand plantation homes, a great civil war museum, and a sense of living history in everything right down to the people.

Nice to hear from you again, and to see you are enjoying your trip, where exactly did you go? For the Civil War museum and stuff. So how was everything during your adventure overall?

Since you last posted here before new years, my trip plans went to hell and back, survived and went through revisions, but it is going to happen. It will mostly center on Southwestern Mississippi and a small chunk of northeastern Louisiana and a little bit of central Mississippi. The only real thing I'm worried with is the weather (humidity) and travel (rent-a-cars, places to stay). Also is it worth driving the full distance? Because I am still contemplating driving and/or flying.

I'd try getting a ticket with Southwest Airlines and then renting a car. I've driven from both Oklahoma and Texas to Phoenix = long, not fun.

I kinda figured that, I had heard horror stories of the endless drive through Texas. Are you sure Southwest Airlines would be best?
