I haven't been on the trace since 2003. After reading these post. We will make a trip in late March from Natchez to the Meriwether Lewis area. Also in 2003 there was a good car museum in Tupelo, MS. it should be better now as they had just opened it in 03.

Yes it is CHASTHO but we are in no hurry-We are planning 63 days on the road-I've heard so much about the Nathez trail We decided to include it on our way to Florida-The days of going like crazy to get there are gone so one of our bucket things was to drive the trace--Maybe in a few years will try heading to the west but our 1991 Bounder is old for mountain trips so for now we pretty much stay on flatter lands--RICH

We take the trace whenever transiting that area.

When we were making trips to Cincinnati (FMCA Committee work) from Texas, we would often take the Trace. Beautiful, particularly in spring (dogwoods) and fall (turning leafs).

You're not alone. We'll be taking the trail north to Michigan with our older F53 also for pretty much the same reasons. Heck we're retired, we earned the right to slow down and smell the roses.

Only issue I'm concerned about is going down the Natchez with our older rig is it sounds like no shoulders to pull off on, and possibly no cell phone service to call for a tow if you have too. Not that we would need one, but it's always nice to be prepared.
