I was very happy to see the Mississippi River up ahead. I always love when we cross the Mississippi, whichever direction we are going.
When we are headed east, it always symbolizes to me that we are officially back in the south. We spent the last 18 months in Arizona, and while I love it out there, it definitely is not the south. So when we crossed the river, I was very happy to be “home”.
We made really good time across Mississippi. The Weather Channel was calling for heavy rains, but we never got any of it. The radar maps showed it all north of us. I was very thankful for that. The road improved and smoothed out after we cross the state line. I was thankful for that, too.
We stopped for the night in Pelahatchie at Yogi On The Lake RV park. It is a part of Legacy Resorts Corporation–I did not like it that when we called to make a reservation, the person we talked to was not at the campground we were making the reservation for. They told us that the office would be closed when we arrived but that they would leave us a map to our site.
When we got there, there was no late arrival info for us. I was a little bit upset by that, as I have worked at campgrounds for 9 years now, and I have always left maps for the late arrivals. I felt like it was poor service to us. The other thing is that they DO have wireless internet in the park, and we picked up a fantastic signal for it, but they required a sign-in code, which we did not have because they did not leave our information outside for us as late arrivals. Just something to be aware of if you are traveling through Mississippi anytime in the future.
They do have long pull through sites, and they are quite level, so that was a plus. Just be sure to ask for your sign-in code for the Wi-Fi when you have them on the phone if you are going to get there after the office closes.
