Photos taken at Tupelo Automobile Museum (Side Trip)

We are loving our little side trips!  Here are some of the photos we took at the Tupelo Automobile Museum.  We (Papi) really could have spent a lot more time there.           I took many more photos, but if you want to see more of these cool automobiles, you really need to make a trip to discover this place.

We are now going to be going with the current, so our fuel burn rate is going to improve! The Tenn-Tom is 450 miles and 12 locks and dams away from Mobile, Alabama where we will come out to the Golf of Mexico. We have been spending more nights in marinas than we were initially going to, because there are many places that there was just no safe place to anchor. The inland rivers and waterways see a lot of commercial traffic with barges and tows, even though the Tennessee and now the Ten-Tom have a lot more pleasure crafts (personal boats) we still have to be weary of them. A second advantage of staying in marinas (other than safety from the barges and current) is that most local points of interest are easily accessible by walking, biking or courtesy car. It would have been a shame to miss some of the places we've seen (places we had no idea existed) beca
