    Shacked up and I loved it!

    I'm a musician and totally loved being offered a complimentary acoustic guitar to thrash about whilst chilling on my shack's balcony...nice touch!
    As their website states, their shacks are real shacks and so they look and smell like real shacks. Ours wasn't offensively dirty or anything but if you're more partial to Choice Hotels' type places then brace yourself a little! It's a great experience though,

    Our shack had a TV but it only played one radio station (not sure what the deal was but didn't care, no TV for 2 nights wasn't a deal breaker for me). There was a very comfy king sized bed in our shack (Office Shack) along with an air con unit, a fridge & a microwave. Their on site bar is awesome with a performance area for guitar clubs etc. that use the place for learning (beers were VERY reasonably priced btw and a good selection too).
    They have just coffee and doughnuts for breakfast (complimentary but first-come-first-serve basis).
    If you like photography then you'll take plenty of pics of this fairly substantial & quaint premises and if you like cats then you'll love the several personable kitties that roam about the place.
    It's a 5-10min drive out of town, BUT, if you wanna go into town of an evening to have a drink and listen to some live blues, then Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero Blues Club offers a handy limousine shuttle to and fro the club (fee was discretionary for us but the going tip is $5 per person each way, arrange with a member of staff at the hotel). There are a couple of taxis too but they're more expensive and probably less fun!
    If going back to Clarksdale I'd stay here again without question!

    ... life. After leaving the museum we drove to the famous Crossroads. The story is that in the 1930s a young man called Robert Johnson made a bargain with the devil, that if he pledged his soul to the Devil than the Devil would give him the ability to play the Blues like no one else. Well, nice story and the crossroads is marked with some Guitars hoisted on poles. Not sure I am convinced. Then back on the road once more, heading for Tupelo, the home town of ...

    Stuck in the 50s?

    ... you’d have a perfect movie set. Many of these towns therefore seem almost frozen in the 1950s/60s—but in a sad, decrepit, abandoned way.

    Another story telling 'blast from the past’ is the price of gas at many abandoned gas stations. We saw one that didn’t look too old showing gas as being advertised at $2.40. But I had to wonder how long ago the gas station advertising gas for $1.69 closed down?

    ... some jokes and talked about where we're from. They were ever grateful, so much that Nathan ended up with a bit of an admirer, hah!
    I should mention Nathan got his car stuck in a snow covered school field the following day and thevan came to the rescue yet again! but this time by hauling, not housing! The boom bus is a beast!
    Thank you Nathan for the fun time!!! ...

    ... upon them in Leland, MS to even know they were there to be found. We tried to unravel the mystery behind Robert Johnson's life. There are 3 grave sites with headstones for him, 3 crossroads where he sold his soul to the devil and many causes of death which sounds like it was from syphilis and pneumonia but the better story is that he was poisoned by a jealous husband. We found two of ...

    ... in seven states. The breadth of the disaster focused attention on the Delta and helped initiate a national flood control program." I was trying to follow the "Great River Road" (i.e. the Mississippi); however, I was just far enough away from the river and just hot enough that I from the few dips I took towards it, I did not actually find a good stopping point. The area I was driving through was very dusty and dry and there was not much commerce. Lots of ...
