So it is Sunday morning....Clark can't make this journey without coffee so we brewed a pot outside the RV.  Since we didn't have power again, but it is Sunday and nothing is open we thought we would continue down the road to our next location.

We made our journey early as we were headed to Vicksburg to tour the Battlefield.  It was a nice drive.  Who knew that armadillos lived in Mississippi? Lots of road kill.  When we got to town, most of it was closed, but it still had gas lanterns on the street corners that still use gas and had Dixieland music playing along the streets.  It was very period and very quaint.  We moved on down to the battlefield where they do a re-enactment of setting the canons off.  Very authentic and loud!  We unhooked the PT and proceeded to do the driving tour which shows how the Union soldiers advanced upon the Confederates.  It was very interesting....we were half way through when we realized we were on E.  We had to cut through the park and go get gas.  We decided to move on.

We arrived in Natchez at about 4pm.  It was a nice RV park right on the Mighty Mississippi with an awesome view!  We hooked up and since we didn't have power decided to go out to eat at Mammy's.  They weren't open.  So we moved on to Fat Mama's Tamales.  We ate Fire and Ice pickles and gringo pie!  It was delicious!  Oh, did I mention the margarita that will knock you naked? Drove around town and looked at all the antebellum homes in the area.  A lot of them!  How wonderful they all are!  We went back to camp and decided to do laundry, write in the blog and play board games.  Ellen doing laundry and blog received a call from Clark that the frig had an alarm going off.  It appears that the frig isn't getting the appropriate juice from the batteries.  Decide to shut it all down and go into New Orleans area early in the am to get this fixed once and for all!!!!!!!!!!  We are so paranoid that we won't be able to start this, that or the engine and all are on edge.  We have to get this taken care of!
