I'm heading out next Wednesday to go to the US Grand Prix at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I've mentioned on here before that I went to this race last year, Michelin brought the wrong tires, race didn't happen, but that I received a full refund that I applied to this years tickets plus two extra tickets. Well, my sister and I invited our Dad.
I'm not concerned about what to do with him at the races, it's going to be more of a problem trying to find him and keep him from getting arrested for stalking David Couthard.
Daddy Huff doesn't ride well and wants to get to Indy as fast as possible. I've finally gotten him to agree to one excursion going and one coming home. We're going to take Highway 3 from Bossier City to I-30, I-30 to I-40 in Little Rock, and I-40 to I-65 in Knoxville(?) (I think - don't have my map in front of me).
Finally - here is my question. Does anyone know of any cool things not far off the interstate along our route? I'm thinking mostly of cool natural wonders or historic buildings, battles, etc. My dad is in good shape, but won't want to do a lot of bending due to his knees and is hard of hearing so it can't be anything that requires listening. And unlike my sister and I, tacky tourist trap things do not enthrall him.
