Billy - We had a nice easy ride today into Meridian, Mississipi due to the short distance. On the way, we pulled off in Vicksburg and toured the Civil War battlefield and it was awesome (see the photos). Its going to be an early night and then we will do the push into Chattanooga tomorrow. It will probably be party, hardy at Chattanooga Harley Davidson tomorrow where they have the big feed for the RFTW folks.

Mustang - The Vicksburg Battleground was the highlight of our day. We toured the grounds and were amazed by how beautiful the terrain was and how it played such an important strategic and tactical role in the battle. Vicksburg is indeed hallowed ground that shaped our country's future. Tomorrow we have 312 miles as we press on to Chattanooga, TN - the country side is beautiful now, green, open and magnificent. We're a little over half way to The Wall - feeling the miles a little now, but still eager to hit the open road and feel the wind in my face. Freedom! There is nothing like it!
