Red Bluff Road Driving Tour - May 15th

We have planned a day trip traveling in the south part of Mississippi. The highlight of this spirited drive will be Highway 587 (Red Bluff Road), one of the best driving roads in the state. We will start in Florence, MS at Hemphill Park at 9:30 a.m. with a brief drivers meeting before we head out. We will travel south along some curvy back roads until we reach Monticello and start our trip down Red Bluff Road. Lunch will be at Lynn's family's camp in Kokomo, MS. (DISCLAIMER: There is a gravel drive about a 1/2 mile long leading up to the cabin. However, Tommy has never had a problem driving either of his cars (Boxster S and 914) on the gravel.) We will be having pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, chips and dessert. Lunch will be provided for Porsche Club Members; non-members please bring $5 per person to cover cost of lunch. There is a large pond stocked with bass and brim at the camp. If you would like to fish, you are welcome to cast a line after lunch. There is an assortment of rods and reels at the cabin for you to use. After lunch we will head back up Highway 587 and return to Florence by late afternoon (approx. 5:00 p.m.).

Please RSVP by Tuesday, May 11th so we know how many to plan on for lunch. We look forward to seeing you there!!

Directions to Hemphill Park in Florence: From Jackson, take Highway 49S. Turn right at the sixth traffic light onto Main Street/Hwy 469S (next to Shell Gas Station). Turn left onto Church Street/Hwy 469S at 1st traffic light. Hemphill Park is about 3/4 mile down Church Street/Hwy 469S on the right (watch for the army tank).
