Day 40: Franklinton, Louisiana to Poplarville, Mississippi – 44 miles

No one stopped the rain in M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I. A wet inevitable rollout of Franklinton, Louisiana. Radar was unforgiving and so by 8 a.m. I rolled in full Gore Tex again. The only difference from yesterday I was in it all day. Mile 21 had us in to Mississippi. The rivers and bayous off the rivers were beautiful.


No where to hide and I was sweating on the inside and wet from the outside. I seemed to have created a balance keeping my legs moving. Flat front tire at mile 31 or so. A retread wire. A quick fix and away I went. A great lunch in Poplarville, Mississippi. Great seafood gumbo and grilled cheese. On to armory for hot shower.
