I’ve been itchin to check out a few US Civil War National Parks. If somethin don’t rip or tear, & weather permitting, I plan on goin May 10 (Friday) & return May 16 (the next Thursday).

It’ll be 7 days of riding, 7 National Parks, & 7 State Parks or sites.

The main parks are
Corinth MS
Shiloh TN
Murfreesboro TN
Chickamauga GA
Kennesaw Mountain GA

With quick stops at smaller places on the way
Spring Hill TN
Resaca GA
Pickett’s Mill GA

It’ll be cheap hotels, greasy spoon cafes, lotsa ridin, & quick sightseein.

I’ve got it all semi-planned. Just gauging interest to see if anyone here wants to tag along. Post up or PM me.

Go to the battlefield in Vicksburg and go see the ironclad Cairo. Definitely an eye opener. And it is on the way.

We’ll figure to meet up with you around Chickamauga. We’ll be there 2 nights mid trip. There’s 4 National Parks at Chickamauga/Chattanooga, & a couple of smaller state park sites.

1 stop at the Chickamauga Park will be the spot where John Bell Hood lost his leg.
Sounds good. I will give you a call when I get to an hour or so outside of Atlanta and go from there
