Day 44: Passing through the Magnolia State

Today started with a beautiful blue sky and 55 degrees–perfect temperature to start our 68 mile ride to Pascagoula, MS, our last stop before Alabama.  About half our ride was quiet and pretty flat, and then the heavy traffic came. Thankfully, people were very nice and passed with care.

Our day tomorrow is only 41 miles into Dauphin Island, our only stop in Alabama. It’s a rest day on a beach in condos–such a far cry from our Super 8 tonight.  Short or long miles, I take each day seriously as there are always issues of safety, and I have to stay sharp.  Fundraising to date $8565 to my goal of $10,000
12 more days ……..
With respect and appreciation
