erika | Jul 22, 200509:51 PM

hey everyone...i plan on moving to CA from NY in october and am looking to have the food road trip of a lifetime! i am desperately seeking people's suggestions/comments for someone who eats all kinds of food, but am interested in eating foods native to those areas. also, i know a lot of southern food is not too healthy, so if you know of any good "healthier" spots, id really apprecite it (cuz i know ill be gaining like 20 lbs before i hit los angeles!) anyway, i plan on driving I-81 thru VA, then onto the 40 in TN to highway 61 in MS, then cutting over somewhere to get to 55, onto the 10 in LA (obviously doing 2 or 3 days in NO before hitting cajun country (im really looking forward to this part of the trip) all the way to austin! i'm especially seeking off the beaten path/backwoods kinds of places, which i'm hoping wont be tooo far from the the major highways i'll be travelling on. as far as attractions go, ive been researching for things to see and do so if you have any wonderful and weird suggestions, please tell me! i look forward to reading all of your suggestions. thanks so much for any info
