This is a model train store and display... Might need to stop by next time




DQ leads us up to Paul's for breakfast.




KW looks happy.














A fixer upper?




By this point, we're well over 1000 miles and my tailbone hurts. I'm ready for a Russell Day Long seat!!!!

We weave around back highways and roads and eventually we split up and head home. Great trip, lots of fun, lots of scenery and places I had never been before, most of all... no telephones, no work, no stress!!!

Let's go again!!!!

Sidestory: I debated adding this, and I guess I will...

So we are zigzagging up the backroads and highways and somewhere in (I think) Amite County MS we come up behind a dark blue F250 King Ranch. We follow the truck for several miles at speed from 55-65MPH. I half expected DQ to pass the truck at any open straight, but we are on a 2-lane highway that has blind hills and some curves, so I figure he is being patient.

All of a sudden, I see flashing blue and white LED's start flashing in the back window, and through the dark tinted windows I see the driver violently waving at us as he pulls to the side. DQ comes to a stop next to the drivers window.

The driver has his window down and seems very upset and tells DQ that he saw him "dragging his feet" and he can't do that. DQ replies "I wasn't dragging my feet. I just stretched my legs." The guy blows up, pointing his finger in DQ's face and yelling "I saw you BUDDY. YOU BETTER NOT DRAG YOUR FEET, BUDDY." and continues to yell and point his finger. I assume he is some form of law enforcement, and possibly even the sheriff being that he is in a "personal" unmarked vehicles with flashing blue lights, but he has no uniform, displays no badge, does not identify himself, but starts yelling at us.

DQ just drives off and we follow. The crazy angry man follows us for a few miles and then turns a different direction at the next stop sign / cross road.

I have no idea who the man was and wish I had been able to snap a picture of him all red faced and yelling at DQ or at least gotten a picture of his tag. Surely he isn't the elected face of law enforcement who was upset that we took our feet off our footpegs to stretch. I guess I am glad he didn't see me standing up and moving around with my tail bone hurting on the long ride.
