    More miles to go

    by KaiM Updated Dec 29, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: Somewhere south of Birmingham my ´84 Jeep Cherokee reached the 100,000 mile mark in the middle of a heavy thunderstorm and rain. I didn´t drive all those miles, but it still proved to me the reliability of this vehicle holding of bad weather and getting me around safely. And that it was ready for some more road trips through the country. Gotta keep on rollin´...

    Favorite thing: The only place I've visited in AL is : MOBILE

    I stayed 2 nights here. Nothing very interesting but maybe if you are into army, you may like to visit the
    battleship 'USS Mobile' which is anchored in the Mobile Bay. I heard good things about the Gulf coast south east of Mobile, but haven't time to go there.

    Favorite thing: Lay out on the beaches: you get an awesome tan and you can watch hot guys ride the waves on body boards!

    Fondest memory: I was walking along the beach and there was this guy who was really trying to show off on his body board to try and impress me and just about the time that he wasn't paying attention to what he was doing, then he fell off the board like drunk!! It was hilarious!

    Favorite thing: A crimson St. Andrew's cross on a white field, patterned after the Confederate Battle Flag, and adopted in 1895. The bars forming the cross must not be less than six inches broad and must extend diagonally across the flag from side to side.

    by Zsuzsi21 Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: One area that I would take anyone to would have to be a little ways out of Birmingham. I was taken there and it was beautiful. It was a creek in a wooded area. It was a kind of place that I would have loved to explore for a little while.

    Fondest memory: The thing that I remember most when I was in Alabama was in Birmingham, Alabama. My friend and I went to a little shop there where they would sell things and also do body piercings. My friend decided that she wants to get her tongue pierced. So I remember going in the little room and her sitting on the seat getting prepared for it. She was so damn nervous. She was already kind of holding my hand like she was having a baby or something. It was a fast process and she actually said to me that it wasn't as bad as she thought it would be. I remember after that...I decided to get my navel pierced (since I already have my tongue done). It was kind of hard for her to get the thing through. So I remember it hurt a little bit. I still have it to this day too. So it gets me to remember that day in Birmingham, Alabama.

    Favorite thing: See a play at the Alabama Shakespear Theatre in Montgomery!
    The grounds and the theatre are beautiful. The productions are excellent (and not exclusively Shakespearian!) and the acting company are talented professionals. Don't miss this!

    Fondest memory: Arriving here with my 27 foot moving van full of furniture after a horrible trip when I moved from Marquette, Michigan (900 miles away). It's not that I was so happy to see Alabama, but that the nightmare trip had come to an end!

    Huntsville -- Huntsville is a...

    by DrewV Written Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Huntsville -- Huntsville is a tourist trap of the worst description, and yet it's still a ton of fun, and educational, too!

    You see, back in the fifties, Yuri Gagarin spoke Russian in space. The American reaction was naturally: 'Anything you can do, I can do better,' and NASA was born. Some brilliant Senator from Alabama (I forget whom) decided that Nothern Alabama needed a little cash, and so the Huntsville Space Center was born.

    It's part science museum, part IMAX, and part factory tour. Most of the museum part you can better experience at the Air & Space Museum in Washington, DC, but only in Huntsville can you tour through the astronaut training facilities and walk through the hangars where the space station and shuttles are built. Pretty groovy.

    Plus, Huntsville's such a quirky little town. Imagine a rural town of mostly cotton farmers and their ilk sudenly infested with NASA engineers. Talk about a strange personality! It's a silly place, but good for a giggle.
