OK, so this is another one of those museums that I have heard about for some time, traveling but kept thinking that "natural history" (animals) museums are not my thing. And again, let me say, "Boy was I wrong", again. This is a fantastic place to visit. What makes this so ironic is the fact that it is just up the road from my hometown and I never got there till this trip.

The Anniston Museum of Natural History is a museum in Lagarde Park, Anniston, Alabama, exhibiting more than 2,000 natural history items on permanent display, including minerals, fossils, and rare animals in open dioramas.

I hope you enjoy the trip as much as we did.

As a history buff, I enjoy studying history and the characters that made it significant. Totraveling me, one of the most fascinating periods in our country's history was the period around the Civil War. The United States was still young and expanding, but it was in danger of breaking apart due to differing ideologies -- ideologies where leaders found little compromise and they were willing to die for their beliefs.

This is one of those stops that was not on the schedule, but sometimes those are the best kind. We were on our way back home from a trip to northwest Alabama when I noticed a sign that led us the Crooked Creek Civil War Museum in Vinemont, Alabama, just outside Cullman.

The Crooked Creek Civil War Museum, housed in an old log cabin, is home to a host of Civil War memorabilia. Located on a battle site where Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and Union Colonel Abel Streight fought for several hours at Crooked Creek. Later they engaged in the Battles of Hog Mountain and Day's Gap in April of 1863. The Museum is part of the Forrest/ Streight Trail.

Fantastic visit!

I have been wanting to visit the B & O Railroad Museum in Baltimore, Maryland for some time. If you are a follower of our travels, traveling you know I am a trains, planes, and things guy. Love museums and flea markets.

Anyway, for the past few years, I have always been on a time-crunch as I get near this area. Thankfully, this trip I had planned ahead and actually got off the interstate to visit this museum. Great place, only drawback was that I could not take pictures inside the museum.

I hope you enjoy the trip as much as we did.

For this trip, we are headed out to Winnie, Texas to revisit a place we love. We have enjoyed stopping at traveling Larry's Old Time Trade Days and Antique Mall for a number of years. Usually, we are either going or coming from activities in Texas or further west. But this time, we drove to Winnie specifically to enjoy the treasure hunt at this fun flea market. We were not disappointed.

I hope you enjoy the trip as much as we did.

Now as you travel from place to place, if you are like me, you try to keep track of the many truck stops traveling along the way. I never know when I might need one suddenly, if you know what I mean. Anyway, truck stops come in all forms and sizes - There is this truck stop in Fort Payne, known as Joe's Truck Stop and it is unlike any truck stop I have ever seen. It is not the typical truck stop, in fact it actually is not a real truck stop in the term of getting gasoline, refreshments, and well deserved nature breaks.

Hence the legion of Joe's Truck Stop begins…

I hope you enjoy the trip as much as we did.

I finally took the time to visit a place I have been traveling by for years. Now that I have seen it, I am traveling wondering why it took me so long to actually drive that extra two miles to go downtown.

Evergreen, Alabama is a quiet southern town about halfway between Mobile and Montgomery just off Interstate 65. I have been using this exit location as my "stop and take a break" when traveling up and down the interstate for years.

I hope you enjoy the trip and video.

On this trip we are headed to Noccalula Falls in Gadsden, Alabama. I first saw Noccalula Falls during my traveling first "Longest Yard Sell" adventure. As some of you know, Gadsden it the southern point of this fantastic yard sell.

Noccalula Falls Park is a 250-acre public park located in Gadsden, Alabama. The main feature of the park is a 90-foot waterfall with a trail winding through Black Creek Gorge at its base past caves, an aboriginal fort, an abandoned dam, pioneer homestead, and Civil War carvings.

For you romantics, there is a nine-foot-tall bronze statue of a young Cherokee woman, Noccalula above the falls. According to local legend, she plunged to her death after being ordered by her father to marry a man she did not love. The legend is very similar to Wisconsin's Winona story and the late 1950s song “Running Bear.”

I hope you enjoy the trip and video.

One of my most favorite places to visit is Cheaha Mountain, often called Mount Cheaha. For those of traveling you that do not know, Cheaha is the highest point in Alabama, 2,407 feet high and is located a few miles north-west of Delta in scenic Cheaha State Park.

One of the most popular attractions at Cheaha is Bald Rock and its magnificent view. I cannot explain it, but I have never been to Bald Rock before this trip. I cannot explain it because I have to pass the sign to Bald Rock on the way to Cheaha Tower. Anyway, I finally made it to Bald Rock and it was magnificent.

I hope you enjoy the video.

Gadsden, Alabama is another one of those towns I became familiar with during my antique-finding traveling runs, but never took the time to explore its downtown area until this trip. As many of you know, Gadsden is the southern starting point for the annual “Longest Yard Sale.”

I fell in love with it from the moment I saw its Downtown Historic District. From its magnificent old town layout and well preserved buildings to the beauty of the Coosa River running through the area, Gadsden is definitely one of those places I would like to revisit as soon as possible.

I have heard about the beauty of DeSoto Falls as far back as I can remember. I traveling have made a number of plans to visit the falls, but for some reason I never made it until the last part of the fall of 2016. I was amazed at what I saw. The area was going through one of the worst droughts in its history - the falls were almost dry.

Lucky for me, I was able to return a few months after the drought was over and I saw the beauty I had always heard about.

I was back in my hometown a short time ago and I had a rude awakening. I thought traveling since I grew up in the area, I knew all there was to know about the area - boy, was I wrong! I know I have been gone a long time, but this treasure, I was not expecting.

We are going to visit "The Forgotten Cemetery" in Mardisville, Alabama.

For this trip, we are headed out to one of my favorite things to do – check out traveling flea markets. I have wanted to visit this flea market for some time and it finally opened for the 2017 season the first weekend in March.

We are headed to the Santuck Flea Market in Santuck, Alabama just outside Wetumpka.

Fort Payne, Alabama is filled with great things to see. One of the best and oldest, the Willstown traveling Mission and Cemetery Site, was established in 1823 by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions for its fifth mission/school for the Cherokees. The Boston-based organization had established its initial mission at Brainerd near present Chattanooga, in 1819. Among the influential Cherokees who persuaded the officials at Brainerd to establish a mission/school here were John Ross and his brother Andrew, and George Lowery.

I was driving up Interstate 95 headed to the Hampton, Virginia area when I decided to stop traveling and visit the JFK Special Warfare Museum on Fort Bragg. I had a wonderful time at the museum, but unfortunately I only got to see the outside portion of the museum. I did not do my homework - the Museum is closed on Mondays. Wow is me. But, I do plan to return so I can enjoy the exhibits inside.

I have been to Prattville, Alabama several times making my antique-finding runs, but never traveling took the time to explore its downtown area. I fell in love with it from the moment I got there. It is such a magnificent old town with its layout and well preserved buildings. The creek running through the area added to its beauty.

I can definitely see myself returning to Prattville soon.

For this trip, we are headed back to Fort Payne, Alabama to check out the Fort Payne Depot traveling Museum, a beautiful Richardson Romanesque architecture designed building constructed using pink and white sandstone quarried from the local area. Built in 1891, this train depot was used by the Alabama Great Southern Railroad until 1970.

I have been to Fort Payne, Alabama on a number of occasions over the past few years. traveling The first time I actually stopped in Fort Payne was during one of our "Longest Yard Sales" adventures. It is a beautiful small southern town packed with history and charm. After all these visits, I recently discovered I actually have some long-lost relatives in the area. So, my last trip to Fort Payne included a family get-together. Wow!

For this trip, we are headed to northeast Alabama, just on the outskirts of DeSota State traveling Park, to see the Sally Howard Memorial Chapel. I have heard and seen pictures of this Chapel for years. In fact, we tried to find it some time ago, but we were looking so hard we drove right by it. So, I actually did some extra map reading before this last trip and it was almost embarrassing how easy it was to get to it.

The Sally Howard Memorial Chapel is a beautiful chapel built into a large rock. Milford Howard built this memorial for his late wife, Sally Lankford Howard. The Biblical term “build your church on the rock” comes to mind.

Well we are back on the road again. I finally made it to the traveling Fitzgerald Museum in Montgomery, Alabama. This museum has been on my list of things to do for several years, but I just never made it to 919 Felder Avenue.

Anyway, I made it and had a fantastic visit. I highly recommend this museum.

The Fitzgerald House was the residence of F. Scott, Zelda and their daughter, Scottie, from 1931 to 1932. The house was saved from demolition in 1986, making it the only remaining residence (and museum dedicated to the honor) of this famous couple. The house is now the Fitzgerald Museum, a non-profit organization dedicated to celebrating the life and works of F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald.

In 1998, the National Prisoner of War Museum opened as a memorial to all American prisoners traveling of war who have served their country with dignity and distinction. What better place to have this museum than the Andersonville National Historic Site, the location of the infamous Andersonville Prison during the Civil War.

At Andersonville, of the 45,000 prisoners of war held there within a 15-month period, about 13,000 died mainly due to scurvy, diarrhea, and dysentery.

Please enjoy this visit as it was meant to be – an honor and tribute to our brave service members everywhere. If you enjoy this presentation, please like and share.

Today marks the anniversary of the worst tragedy that has ever happened on American traveling soil. We are remembering the attack on American by those that would destroy anything we hold of value. It was on the morning of September 11, 2001 when the United States was jolted with a reality check. We, like the rest of the world, are no longer safe within our own borders.

We visited "Ground Zero" sometime ago. There has been a great deal of rebuilding. A new towers building has gone up. The "survivor tree" lives on. But, we must not forget what happened that day - never let our guard down to those that would destroy us for our beliefs.

There are two vides on this article. One puts together the scenes of the tragic day, while the other video provides you a glimpse of how things have progressed during our May, 2012 visit. We look forward to returning soon to check out the completed museum.

Please enjoy this visit as it was meant to be - an honor and tribute. If you enjoy this presentation and videos, please like and share.
