Day 43 – “Ride” Trace Adkins

Wiggins to Pascagoula,MS

69 miles Total:  2417!

Hat tip to Adam for the song recommendation for today’s blog!  Seems right considering the first verse-  No diesel to fire up, but Sweet Ruby will make it to Florida! What a great day!   Finally we rolled out with the sunshining!  A gentle breeze made the heat stay at bay, and the terrain was rolling hills, and quiet roads.   We traveled through DeSoto National Forest.  Great ride, lots of green as we wound our way through rural Mississippi.  Some days the miles can be overwhelming, where you are glancing at your odometer every few minutes to see if you are making progress.  Today the miles just seem to fall away- 70 miles and I was in to the motel  by 1 pm. The last few miles took us to the coast and we crossed 2 bridges to arrive in Pascagoula.  The bridge was steep, but had a nice wide shoulder and not too much traffic.  I stopped at the top to take a few quick pictures – you can see the Naval yard. During our brief time in Mississippi you cannot help but realize that you are in the Bible Belt.  Even in the most remote areas you cannot go 3-5 miles without seeing a church.  You can feel and see the strength of their faith everywhere.  Seems appropriate to wish everyone a Happy Easter! image

It is slowly creeping in that this journey will be over in less than two weeks!   There are moments when I am pedaling that it feels as if it will never end.  Other moments, it seems as thought it has flown by!
