Anyone ever been? Jamie_summers?
I'm really really obsessed; wanna go sooo bad
UNDERNEATH the Isle of Wight.

does that count?
otherwise i think Jamie has been to Nashville and stuff.
from Tallahassee, Florida to Motor City Detroit you might have found your true love
You're so cool
i am already vaguely considering doing a masters in Alabama or Tennessee or something because i am a MASSIVE GEEK for Southern Literature. hm
my favourite quote, in Baton Rouge greyhound station, upon hearing me speak, some woman said "where you from?", i said, "heh, i'm from britain." woman: "is that foreign?"
its borderline. generally, the people are indeed very friendly and hospitable, unless as someone says you push the wrong button, but then i guess thats the same for most places. me and my girlfriend are off to memphis > clarksdale > tupelo > oxford > nashville in july so thats a bit deeper than before. can't wait!
that faulkner is from of course, so pretty redneck.
we're driving most of it so will no doubt break down and get killed my crazed cannibalistic inbreds
it's home to the university of mississippi (ole miss) so it has a great art/music scene, loads of cool blues bars, and it's relatively close to new orleans.
i'm sure you'll have a lovely trip but yeah, watch out for those backroads rednecks. seriously, i almost got shot by one crossing the road once as i had yelled at the driving for nearly hitting me...but i'm always partial to my former home of nashville! :)
Not strictly as Deep South as Alabama perhaps, but it's very much a part of the bible belt.
Got any questions?
If you count Northern Florida as the deep south.
or North and South Carolina.
