Last year I toured from PA to Key West. I am 6'4" and 220 Lbs. Many times I stopped for directions or water and cannot tell you how many people invited me into their home. I could have easily been a threat to them! People in the south are just nice. Never had a problem. Too damn nice I say! Everytime I stop and talk to someone, it turns out to be a 15 - 20 minute conversation. DO NOT look for a reason not to go! Yours may be that your female. My reasons were mortgage, kids, work, wife, wife, home repairs, and so on. I cringe at the tought that I almost talked myself out of it several times because leaving my life for a month just seems reckless. Don't let your gender get in the way. Go for it!

Josie Dew and Ann Mustoe have written some wonderful books about their travels, I heartily recommend them to anyone thinking of travelling on their own.
