Trip to Mississ

Just back from Mississippi
I went to MS 5-day trip. I was surprised and enjoyed. First I did not think I could get my wife to ride that far but it was her suggestion to visit my in-laws. So we did 300mile days and according to her that's about her limit. OK I enjoyed the sights, the road and overall how the LT handled its new passenger. Here it is in a nut shell:
Chicago - St Louis
St Louis - Southeaven
Southeaven - Clarksdale - Greenville
and then the reverse to get back home.
Saturday evening only we rode around in a car to downtown Memphis, Beale Street, Peabody Hotel and the sport complexes. Monday after a night of rain and hail and wind we rode back through Memphis on the way out. Great trip.

Hey Bill, Great images and I'm sure nice memories from the five day trip with the bride!

Re: Trip to Mississ

Thanks Steve.
Yes my first trip of the year. And my wife of 30+ years is by no means a new bride or at riding. It's just that in our later years when I got this bike she told me I would have to go it alone. So I was delighted at the same time surprised when she showed the initiative. I took a couple pictures at the riverfront but don't really have any turn of the century ones to compare the bridges with. I can't be expecting you to help me with my home work but I have been looking. I-40 at that point is the Lorenzo De Soto bridge and down river is a train bridge. Both are modern built so can't really use for 'Then & Now' I will still attach. I took a look at your latest additions great!
