Late Saturday night I checked my Facebook, and saw Jeffrides online. I buzzed him asking if he wanted to ride. Then EBW buzzed me, we all decided on a time and place by 11PM.
By the time EBW and I met up with Jeff, at noon, Sunday. He had invited Greg, then he in turn called Cliff77. By the time we made it to Edwards, we were suprised to see the other two.
We decided to head out to Rawhide Rd.



Next we headed out for Yazoo City, to find the Woolsworth.

While on Main Street I tried to capture up and down the street. Really trying out the HTC phone camera.




I enjoyed Yazoo City, I want to go back there after I have down some research. I didnt realize its significance, in the past.
Thanks for all who rode with us. And thanks for sparking my historical interest in Yazoo.

Those are nice pics. I've been thinking of trading the BBerry for one. Does anyone know if that paint on those buildings was a mistake mix @ HD or Lowes and on sale?

I forgot to say where I rode. Always to work, but also to Autozone to buy a plug kit for a screw I picked up. SUCKS! Still have a slower leak. Tire is kinda new, so any suggestions?

Tire needs to be pulled, patched, and plugged from the inside. But only if it's the rear. If it's the front, don't risk it, replace it.

Thanks! I was suprised,too.
It does, the trick was finding out how to get them from the Stingy HTC, to the computer. But, with all new gadgets it takes gettin use to.

Yes its Paint. Weird, looking I know.
I got the HTC Wildfire. I tried the Desire and Hero in store.
Hero, sub-par
Desire, -5 under par
Wildfire, even par

If it's the rear, I can put a patch/plug combo unit in it for you. I keep them on the shelf. PM me if you wanna do that.

1st day

No dual sportin' for me, just tarmac and speed. Stopped on 49 for a short break and tried the HDR setting on the iphone. Not too shabby with a little photoshop help. I guess I need to take the Duck out today or it might get jealous.

Nice. Also, if you want to play with HDR on the iPhone, there are a couple of $2 apps that are a lot better than the built in HDR function.

I ain't technical enough to figure out that HDR stuff, but I did score an invitation to a ADV Jacktown Hooligan ride last night...

Playing around downtown in the parking garages will get you some unwelcome company that sport blue lights on top. I speak from personal experience with it. Trouble with the places is "one way in one way out". They gotcha!

We stopped and chatted with the Security guy in the hotel parking garage and he RECOMENDED that we go check out the other parking garage at 1 Jackson Place, so we did. There were multiple entrances and exits to the hotel one (spiral going down, ramps going up) and the big Jackson one (capital and amite sides). No blue lights or anything. The only time i got nervous was when one particular individual decided to run the stairs beside the senate office building... i had just watched the security guard go in a porta potty at the end of the block, so I guess he was too tied up to chase us... (i did not like the low ceiling and beams in the One Jackson Place garage!!!)
