Thanks, good advice! You know what im looking for, warmer weather !Birmingham, AL is on our list of places we'd like to explore. Also the mountains of Northern Georgia but they'd probably be pretty chilly right now. Anywhere on the Gulf Coast for seafood - perhaps around Mobile. New Orleans is neat but not sure I'd want to camp near there. It's ROUGH. We also want to spend more time in Texas eventually. For a shorter trial run, maybe the Gatlinburg area? Or Nashville? There's a nice state park not far West of Nashville - think the name was Alexander Bell State Park. We used to stay there when the kids had soccer tourneys.
