Tuesday, July 29, 2008

The bugs are attracted to my computer screen. I sit with legs akimbo in my tent. AT&T even reaches here, a remote Mississippi sate campground outside of Tupelo.

Temperature was near 100 today. Still now over 85 as sweat drips down my nose.

Today was a ride through the Alabama and Mississippi back country. Not a freeway ridden. I didn't realize how big timber was as an industry in these parts.

Met some good folks along the road. Everyone is amazed to see a BMW bike. They thought there never was such a thing!! These states are poor. Rural southern living is still tough.

People are scared out here. Worried about the economy and their futures. These times hit the poor the hardest. They don't have a cushion.

Took some photos but the camera is in my bike outside the tent...in the insect realm.Photo uploads will have to wait for another entry. Until tomorrow...
