South Central TN / Corinth MS / northern Bama Sun, 03/17/13 4:27 PM (permalink)
So I am in the earliest stages of planning another two-day circumnavigation, which I might do in June.  This time, I'm considering starting in Chattanooga, and then taking I-24 to Monteagle, and US-64 west through Fayetteville, Lawrenceburg, and Savannah TN, then to Corinth MS, southeast to Muscle Shoals/Florence AL, then Athens/Huntsville, south to Cora, Birmingham, Leeds, Anniston, and back to Atlanta.
It's easy enough to track down barbecue places in this region (and if you are not familiar with it, is a terrific resource), and I'll be researching Davwud's wonderful blog as well.  What I am specifically looking for in these corridors, give or take 20 miles either way along my route, are really old drive-ins, dairy bars, hot dog joints, curb service, the older the better.  Repurposed Tastee-Freezes, great big signs, wacky roadside architecture a must.  I've already been to Tasty Dip in Heflin and I hope to visit Goal Post BBQ in Anniston around sundown on this trip to see their animated neon sign in action - things like that.  All ideas along those lines welcome!
