Gene & I were relieved when we finally got away from civilization, there was less traffic and where the roads flattened out some...Russ was probably thankful for the flattening out part!
We took a few stops today, this one was just north of Sardis on the roadside. It stayed overcast until about 2 pm, so that made it much cooler today. It was 84 degrees at lunchtime in Batesville's McDonald's.
This is what most of the road looked like today in Mississippi.
Another piece of information we have speculated about (and we do have LOTS of time to speculate!) is how in the WORLD do places get their names? Today we were in Yalobusha county...it made me wonder, were there a lot of yellow bushes there? We didn't see any. The other day we came across a city limit type sign that said "Future City", I'm sorry to say it did not look like it had much of a future, more of a past. Enough speculation for the day!
