What borders are you placing around the Gulf Coast Region? Is Southeast Texas included?

I'd say it's like Margaritaville -- it's wherever you want it to be!

Do I need to repost since I'm already in Keith's thread-starter? Oops. :D

I know I've mentioned having a Ridge Run to coincide with Cruisin' the Coast next fall. I might also throw out that the City of Gulfport is reportedly in negotiations with IRL to have an Indy Car race at Jones Park (on the beach). As everyone probably knows, Honda builds all the engines for IRL now & the Ridgeline is the official truck of IRL. That might be a fun run, too...

:cool: Crawfordville, Fl- 20 miles from the Gulf
5 miles as the bird flies. The one thing I disliked about C'ville and that area... no real beach, except Alligator point. Is that Pizza place still open in the Winn Dixie plaza? Is Winn Dixie still there? When they finish widening 319, then you'll have a nice drive into Tallahassee. Then again, once all of those housing communities get developed, you'll be back where it is now! LOL

I hadn't thought of this before, but Natchez might be a cool place for a run. There's casinos, the famous antebellum mansions & of course the Natchez Trace Parkway (gorgeous) or Highway 61 (the blues highway) for a little excursion.

Emerald Mound would be a great place for a photo op, as would the ruins of Windsor up near Port Gibson.

Just musing... And now, I owe, I owe, so off to work I go...

There are some antiques shops in Natchez as well. I would expect some big purchases with a bunch of trucks there.

Another photo op in Natchez is at the bottom of a step downhill paved road that takes you to river water level. The Natchez tourism center is nice too.

Too bad we missed the Angola Prison Rodeo, that is fun. I went to it in October.

Now there is where you should buy woodwork.. some of it is just art. What is neat, you can bargain price with the convicts. If you can hold off purchasing until the end of the day, they drop prices A LOT! Less money in their pocket is better than no money! As the convicts get to keep 100% of what they sell. Plus the rodeo is amazing, not like the professional rodeos, WAY better as these guys go all out.
