Before we moved, we assembled a “moving to Mississippi” driving guide. It changed a little as the week went on but I’ve posted it below so you can see what our life was like during those days. Essentially, drive, drive, drive, and drive some more. We wound up staying at a Hampton Inn every night of the trip- totally worth it for road-weary travelers! The chocolate chip cookies are the bomb!
