Things I Learned Traveling In the South


    The nastiest drivers are in Virginia, second only to NC
   The best Coffee is always in Truck Stops

   They do not use milk in their coffee south of the Mason/Dixon line – they use cream, Parmalat or half/half.

   If it looks like the Bates Motel, it probably is…

   Billboards will tell you everything you need to know about a city or town

   The roadkill down south is grosser than in the north, I mean it’s like the deer “EXPLODE” on impact.
   Be careful who you yell at, everyone is packing.

   It costs about 20 bucks to get out of NJ, MD and DE after that it’s free sailing.

   Waffle House is a staple food.

   Everything is fried – breakfast, lunch and dinner, all day, every day – except peanuts, they boil them.

   Boiled Peanuts – YUCK

   There’s no such thing as “instant” grits down south (I love me some grits!)

   There really is such a thing as Southern Hospitality; mostly everyone is very pleasant, except when they are behind the wheel of a car!
   Even if you have a GPS, bring a map it’s good to know where you are actually going!

    Have fun on your travels! And stay away from them Bates Motels!
