On to Natchez!





It's
just like
the
old times!




luxurious
hotel....




breakfast
on
styrofoam...




living
out of
the
blue
suitcase.





bikes
by
the
beds







How
we've
missed
it!




So
good
to be
back!





Packing
up the
morning
car.





The
wheeling out
of the
bikes...





Al's
on a
new bike -

My Phoenix
from
home.





She
attaches
my wheel
for me.




She
helps
load
the bikes...







Even
climbs
on the roof
to pack
Bike Friday.





Don't
forget
the
helmets!







or
the
wine!














Mark
makes
the
final
adjustments...






The
bikes
are
ready!












And
before
you
know it...





we're
drivin'
down
the road...







...to
Mississippi!





Leo!

What are you
taking
a picture of?





Oh
my
goodness!






We'll
be biking
hot
in
Mississippi!



We pull in
to the
Natchez
Quality
Inn...




and
we
see
Shirley
and
Howard!





I remember
biking out of
Casper
with Howard
and
Shirley!







Was it
so
long
ago?





Reacquainting
under
the
awning...





Gotta
unpack
the
car...










Leo's
Bike Friday
fits
in a
suitcase.















Alex's
bike
is more
traditional.










A new
hotel
room.






Then
down
to the
lobby...






for
more
reunioning!







And
some
serious...






...business!






Joe
explains
our
route...




and
gives us
our
shirts!


Cool!





Then we
carpool
to
dinner...






It's a
step up
from
Denny's!





Leo
invites
me in.







Serious
work...





this
ordering...
















...
off
a
real
menu!







Then
lift
a glass
and
cheer...






to
biking
the
Natchez
Trace...




together!
