Travel routes & sites of interest for meandering MO-to-TN road trip?

I'm planning a week-long road trip for me and my dad for the coming spring. The tentative plan is to drive from St. Louis to the small town of Waverly, TN. That's a trip of only 280 miles if we take the shortest route, and could easily be completed in one afternoon... but that's no fun. The Duffell family likes to take leisurely, meandering road trips. Help us take this thing off the interstate and enjoy the scenery. Don't be afraid to take us out of our way. [more inside]

Need recommendations for moving companies in the southern US

I'd like recommendations for reliable & affordable moving companies for my grandparents, who are moving from central Florida to Little Rock, Arkansas. My grandmother can maybe manage packing the dishes and the clothes, but everything else will have to be done by the moving company. My grandfather cannot help at all. They have an average amount of furniture for a 2 bedroom.

I don't want a pickle...

How to recover a lost title for a scooter I would like to purchase from someone who got it in another state? I'm in Missouri, the title was in Illinois. Simplicity is a priority. I normally wouldn't hassle, but it is mint and the price is better than right. Additionally--I've heard rumor about some mysterious trick involving Arkansas--that just may make everything easier.

How do I vote strategically in the presidential primaries?

I live in Arkansas. It's a Super Tuesday state, and I can vote in either party primary. Polls currently suggest that Clinton and Huckabee (both of whom have Arkansas ties) are way, way, way ahead in my state. I prefer Obama to Clinton, but I'm not in love with either of them, and, really, I just want to see a Democrat win the general election. Bearing all of this in mind, how should I vote in the primary?

Identify this Artist

I'm looking for info on a print I recently bought at a yard sale. The print is of a surrealist ink drawing. The main subject of the drawing is the Palace Bathhouse in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. It is signed as "Kahn '77". Does anyone have any idea who the artist is or has anyone seen this drawing before? It almost looks like an illustration from a book.
