Today was the two month anniversary of our Great Loop trip! What a great time we are having on this adventure. We have traveled nearly 2,000 miles and have been in seven states since leaving Michigan. Every day we discover something new!
I have learned some things about the South on the trip from Tennessee to Alabama.
- The people are friendly, kind, and generous.
- Southern food is unique and delicious, even if I can't get past the sweet tea.
- The SEC is the king, and football is just as big here as in Michigan and the Big Ten.
- Many people in the South are still fixated on the Civil War; however, this is quite understandable as it was fought mostly on southern soil and there is evidence all around of the how terrible it was.
