Posted by spacegrrl at 10:51 AM - "right, that's what trees look like..."

Yesterday we crossed the last bit of east Texas, all of Louisiana, and now we are in Jackson, Mississippi. Most of the day we spent on 80, which is a secondary highway that parallels I-20 and the railroad.

We stopped at "The Authentic Bonnie and Clyde Museum", but it was closed.

We stopped at a produce stand and bought local honey, preserved garlic, black walnut syrup, sweet/hot pickles, and blackberries. The blackberries I am snacking on in the car (Dan is sadly allergic); the rest is mostly for the folks back home. But I won't say who is getting what :)

Somewhere in Louisiana, I topped a hill and saw a wall of black clouds ahead of us. I decided it was time for lunch. I pulled into a local hamburger stand and we ate some of the best food of the trip while the rain poured down.

When we first pulled on to 80 in La, we saw a pair of Ford F150's drag racing down the highway; then soon after we saw men in camoflage on three wheelers, and an upholstered chair by the side of the road. I turned to Dan and said, "We don't fit in here."
