The Trace is 440 miles long! I had no idea these roads were so long, From the top of the Shenandoah Skyline to the bottom of the Natchez Trace is over 1000 miles.
Better git to it, then!
It’s just gets hotter, and hotter, and hotter.
the Old Trace
Cotton shows up in Alabama
Indian Burial mounds. A Harley rider says “The Trace gets pretty boring” I think not.

This was lunch, an Amish market. Nice. I had a ham sammich. The ladies liked my stickers! I read the little sayings posted everywhere…over the hand made spices..”Our customers say they’re even better than WalMart!”, and my favorite “The undeveloped property with the greatest potential is that which resides between your ears”
I am not in California, am I? Glad I didn’t tag this little fella…
GPS weather shows storms ahead, Natchez is only 40 more miles, and getting pounded for days now with lightning storms. I decline to attend, and exit the Trace, heading to Vicksburg, MS.
bugs everywhere at this stop, couldn’t sit long.
I am finding battlefields to be depressing. This one started it, 18 years ago, when I last came through on the K75s. Lots of ghosts at Vicksburg….Here is the Mississippi at Vicksburg. It was an exciting place to be in July, 1863. Look it up on Wikipedia. Look up the Natchez Trace too. The Mississippi was a hot ticket item back then.
aaaaaannnnd…..dodging storms, I blast across Louisianna via Interstate 20, but drop south when the GPS shows trouble, only 15 minutes or so of hard rain, not bad.
I went south of one batch and north of these…love that radar!
I am comfortably ensconced at Declan and Missy’s place in Athens, TX. Route out of here undecided, but I am leaning towards GTF outa this heat! 100 degrees right now, 52% humidity. No, I am not outside on the deck writing this! My ass is on the AC, bubba!
