Our Annual Monster Road Trip

We are about to embark upon our annual Monster Road Trip. This year’s adventure will find us traveling from New Orleans to Chicago along three pre-interstate “mother roads”:

  1. The Great River Road from New Orleans to Natchez Mississippi
  2. The Natchez Trace, from Natchez to Nashville, through Jackson, Mississippi
  3. Route 66 from Saint Louis to Chicago
Google Maps route for this year’s journey.

As always we’ll be following our long-standing and religiously observed rules for road trips:

  1. Stop for any photo
  2. Stop for any story
  3. No interstate highways
  4. No chain restaurants

If you’d like a preview of what to expect: here are links from the starting pages of our previous road trips. Each one is the start of a dozen or so posts covering daily updates from the road – the sights, the events, and most of all, the FOOD! These are all from the “Happy Mouth Classic” version of the blog, our previous environment.

Road Trip 1 – From Austin, TX to Las Vegas, NV.

Road Trip 2 – From Seattle, WA to San Diego, CA and Palm Springs, CA

Road Trip 3 – From Austin, TX to Myrtle Beach, SC

See you from the road. Stay tuned!
