4-29-13 MS Blues Trail ride

Well finally got home and decided to take a day ride and get some more MBT markers. Weather was great and had friend tag alone for the ride. So much history here, it is just unbelievable!
First stop was Woodville





Left Woodville and headed to Natchez. Took some back roads and really got turned around. found some roads that Garmin didn't know about. Friend on a cruiser and learned how to ride dirt and gravel (did a great job).

















Next trip thinking about the coast markers.

Hadn't seen this thread until Brad pointed me to it. Great minds think alike. Our local BMW club made this a ride challenge so I'll be posting many of these here. Yesterday was my first day to grab some. I can tell some are going to be interesting

First off, if anyone wants a .pdf of the current markers with gps coordinators, shoot me a pm. The smart phone app is nice too, I've been using it. I grabbed 12 yesterday and out of the 12, one was missing, two were about 100 yards off from their stated gps location, which normally isn't bad but when your rolling slow through a row of shack houses and everyone is looking at you, can make for an interesting ride.

Day 1, Went from Brandon to Vicksburg and then up to Rolling Fork and then to Yazoo and down to Bentonia and then Canton before heading home. Grabbed 12 (one not pictured) Mississippi Blues Trail Markers. I'm out for 120 of the current 152 this year.

Hey, if anyone found the marker in Forrest, let me know where it is. Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup. Listed as 477 West 3rd st. I look everywhere and no luck.

The wife wanted to go out 2 up so we headed south a grabbed a few more. All my pictures are cropped. Most of the original have part or all my motorcycle in them but without cropping you can't read the sign. My iPhone doesn't take the best pictures.

I feel like I'm hogging this thread but it is the perfect home for my current project. I ride a two day ride though the north east hills and north west delta and grabbed these. I had a blast. It was a long and hard ride but rewarding.

I saw at least two but to be honest, I saw so many cool photo opportunities in the last two days. I saw a lot of murals everywhere I went and they are getting mixed up in my memory. I wanted to take pictures of them all but the tags were very time consuming.

Two 500-mile days with a minimum of 51 photo stops makes for long days.

Here is today's installment. Long day but home by 2:30. Not a bad run considering I took time to eat lunch.
