Had a 6 day stretch (or so I thought) and planned to ride along the Apps from Alabama to WV. On Day 3 a work issue came up and cut the trip short. Made the best of it, rode in MS, AL, GA, TN, and NC, mostly county roads, lots of dirt and a huge mistake getting on the interstate in Chattanooga. Had a flat, went down at around 45MPH, and was amazed by how little water there was in the streams. Hope the pics are enjoyed as dialogue from here on will be in short supply. Headed out from Brandon, MS running northeast. Stopped by the Nanih Waiya mound. Was right by the road. Not sure why they would build it so close to a roadway. Was also the site of the great opossum massacre of 2010. There were 5 or 6 dead ones right in the road by the mound. Was kinda odd. Never know what you might run into on county roads Then on to the smaller roads for miles to AL. These are public roads, but often go right through the middle of someone's farm. This guy and his son had been in the fields since 4am. Great roads and very few people anywhere. Next, into Alabama.
