Too much riding, visiting and chatting with folks, owe updates!

Before leaving SC, BBQ and a visit with my friend Jane. SC BBQ is second to none, and I eat BBQ all over North America.



I originally went east to head west, i finally headed west.

I always enjoy finding on deserted back roads an apocalyptic service station. We are now in Mississippi, the klr is amazing me.






Arrive in Philadelphia MS, visit a general store. They sell everything from animal feed to Ralph Lauren clothes to fresh meats and groceries to horse saddles to Justin boots.



Fresh slab bacon right out of the slaughterhouse



Women's Columbia brand threads



Horse and tack



Remember the theater on the movie "Mississippi Burning" the FBI set up so in?... this happens to be that old theater.



OK I arrive at cousins property and as promised she left the fare unlocked. My excuse to spending hours on her fire break trails is in looking for the perfect spot to pitch camp. Deep down I know I'll be throwing the sleeping bag in the little cabin.



The little cabin.



Leave for another 500 mile day, head to Dallas. Of course I have to do in Monroe, Louisiana steer being tipped off about a cabin joint. Chatted with locals and ate the best seafood gumbo ever with shrimp, crab, and crawdad tails. I added the saltines.



Onward to Dallas and arrive. First stop i noticed they sell unique brand wine and wine bottle holders.



Wow TX brisket is second to none, and Cajun and brisket in the same day? Thanks klr. Now i remember last time i was on Dallas. Bonedaddy's House Of Smoke.

Made new TX friends here tonight



Then ate this HUGE fresh jalapeņo, plus the sliced brisket and pulled pork. Just friggin' wow. The fried okra was all that too.



Eat here when in Dallas.



Now, is quite the challenge to haul all this camping gear into a hotel! Its just too late to figure out a campsite tonight. Tomorrow I'll meet the Dallas BMW group for breakfast, then head west.
