    I should have looked closer to see you crossed at Vicksburg and not Greenville, but you still came close to me. Yeah, Tallulah and LP are not very attractive. In fact, LP was once listed as the poorest town with the most *Personality in the country. Now it's merely in the top 12, so you caught them in better times. Thanks for sharing.

    I wouldve taken pictures of the towns but I didnt want to take away any dignity the folks may have already lost. Typically you see businesses like this dry up because a Big Box moved in but there obviously wasnt one in the area. Only reason I thought of taking pictures of the town or town's people was due to the overwhelming amount of Jazzy Chairs scooting up and down the sidewalks. Must have been a welfare Program for them at one time.

    That is quite a ride! Some old stomping grounds you covered.

    Similar situation at a gas pump in TN. Dude, wife, couple of kids and a mini van. His story was that he unknowingly lost his wallet at the previous stop and didn't have gas money. He told me he is retired Army. I did notice he had a post registration sticker on his windshield. Gave him what I had in cash which was less than ten bucks.

    Have ride plans for 2015?

    There are some really nice routes in that listing!

    These sites are useful route planning for myself:
    Road Conditions, Speeds, Travel Times, Traffic Cameras, Live Streaming Traffic Cameras, Road Closures and Road Work Information provided by Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) a branch of Colorado Department of Transportation
    http://nmroads.com/
    UDOT TRAFFIC
    All have traffic cameras - good for road conditions.


    I see some overlap with my plans - Taos, NM area bound by Aztec and I-25; Death Valley and Sequoia National Park and Forest; Burr Trail in UT which also would go over the ferry at Lake Powell (to and from is open). I may scoot through Cortez to see a bunch of Concours.

    Looks like there will be at least 300 Connies there at this point. Several Hotels are booked solid. Rally Central is at the Baymont. Im next door in the Holiday Inn. Points
