Seeing America’s beautiful sites and attractions in the southeast

A family loading bags into a car in their driveway in preparation for a road trip.

Y’all won’t believe where I’ve been. I returned Monday evening from an eleven-day adventure with some of my favorite people on the planet.

But we had a marvelous trip, and it was good to kind of lose track of the events driving the 24-hour news cycle from day to day. It’s hard to worry so much about the mundane events of everyday life when you are living as large as we were on Huck Tours’ 100th trip.

We visited some old familiar places and a few that were brand new, even for me, and I’ve been everywhere.

Our tour started at the same place I did: Porterdale. There’s no place like home and if I lived to be a hundred, which doesn’t seem likely right now, I will never lose touch with my raisings. We went to my church and the gym and circled the Osprey Mill. That about covers things as far as my childhood.

Our first meal was at Fresh Air Barbecue in Jackson. We’ve never been treated better. And then we went to Warm Springs and toured the Little White House. If you haven’t done that recently you should do yourself a favor and go and be reminded of a time when leaders could be leaders. I don’t agree with much of FDR’s politics, but I admire the fact that he didn’t let little things like polio, the Great Depression and World War II hold him back.
