We are planning a ride to Red Bluff in Foxworth, Mississippi.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Red+Bluff/@31.3256487,-89.9479163,663m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x889d5eeb64a94acd:0x151041beb171b896!8m2!3d31.3256441!4d-89.9457276

We will begin with lunch at Coffee Rani in downtown Covington at 11:00am. The Covington group can meet everyone there. The Baton Rouge group will meet at Shoppers Value (old Winn Dixie) in Walker at 9:30am. The Lafayette group can plan to meet the B.R. group there also. They just need to coordinate a meeting time / place in Lafayette to meet.

On our way to Red Bluff we will make a stop at Cha Cha's Frozen Custard in Foxwort, Ms.

For those who are interested, we will plan to stay overnight in Brookhaven, MS at the Inn on Whitworth which is a quaint Bed & Breakfast downtown.

I would advise you to make reservations ASAP. The downtown area will be decorated for the holidays.

I spoke with the bed-and-breakfast and they told me that they only have very few rooms left for that night. A wedding party has blocked out a bunch of rooms but they said to get on the waiting list if you don't actually get a room. You will have to call to make the reservations, and tell them that you are with the Miata club. If there are no rooms available tell them you want to be put on the waiting list as they expect some of the rooms for the wedding party will not be needed.

I think given the weather forecast for Sat morn8ng I will not be going on this drive. I know that Keith has spent a lot of time planning this drive but 26 degrees to start is just to cold.

I'll probably keep the top up and the heater on and hope not to encounter black ice. Definitely will keep the hazards in mind on this trip as I recall some curvey roads that dip down small valleys with some small bridges. Wonder what Red Bluff looks like today with the sneaux ? ;)

Anyone else from LFT area going??

With thermals and furry mittens, we will be hitting the road with any other brave (or crazy, it depends on your perspective) individuals that are planning to make the journey ☃️.

O.K. Maybe the top will stay up at the beginning......... but then again.........
