I was looking out of my office window in Mobile, Alabama about 15 minutes ago and saw a red truck with camper and airstream going down the water street exit ramp off I-10. I thought it looked like Moosetags rig based on past pics and looking at this thread it looks like it is connection with this trip. A neat coincidence.

Following along, always looking to learn from others travel adventures in my part of the world. Speaking of which, there is some relief from the heat out here: my next camp spot is forecasted as having high temps of 73, 75, 79, and 77 for the trip. But it's a dry heat... 8100'.

You caught us, Jarrod. Just when we thought we had been able to slip through Mobile in stealth mode, we were spotted. We thought that Fred, Ethel, and Lucy would be able to make their way unnoticed, blending in with the downtown traffic, but no such luck. There are Airforums operatives lurking everywhere.

Well, we're at it again. Lucy is headed out on her first great western excursion.

We took off this morning and are on the road again. We got Lucy hooked-up, and were actually rolling before noon. We headed west through Ft. Walton Beach and on to Pensacola. We got on I-10 for the quick run over to Mobile. We made it through the tunnel and into downtown Mobile. We weaved our way through Mobile and headed northwest on US 98 up to Hattiesburg, Mississippi. We continued up to Jackson on US 49. The roads around Jackson are really rough and Lucy took quite a beating.

We arrived at our campground in Clinton, Mississippi (just west of Jackson) as it got dark. We got Fred and Ethel bedded down, and we settled into Lucy for the night. A bunch of stuff in Lucy got bounced out of place by the rough road, but we got everything re-situated in pretty quick order.

We covered about 350 miles today.

Tonight's pictures include:

Recreational boaters in Destin Harbor.
I-10 overpass in Pensacola decorated with US Navy Blue Angels.
A cute little Burro travel trailer being towed by a big Moho.
Downtown Mobile Skyline.
Entering the Mobile I-10 Tunnel.
The 1907 Mobile Railroad Passenger Terminal.
An Old filling station along US 98 west of Mobile.

Its been in the low 60s here in Telluride this past week and 45 at nite. City park is next to town or you can head higher to some other National forest campgrounds. We had great weather in the Tetons as well. Low humidity is dream weather. Have fun out west.

We're headed that way. It was 98 degrees when we went through Jackson, Mississippi today.

It was pure luck that I looked up and saw you coming down the ramp but you also managed to get a picture of my office building. It is the second one from left of picture (immediately right and about half the height of first building with arched top which is the Riverview hotel).
Have a great trip.

This morning I forgot to look over at the Clinton RV park to see if I could spot you. You and I are playing leap frog, I towed my Airstream passed you about 6:30 this morning, I figure you are passing me in Vicksburg any minute now.

Not likely as we are still in the campground in Clinton. SuEllyn decided to sleep in this morning. Lucy stayed hooked up last night, so we should be able to make a faster than usual get away.
