Where I stayed
Jim and I also had a nice drive. We had to drive the highway and were not allowed to go on the Trace. I would like to come back sometime and take a leisurely drive all the way on the Trace. But we also had a highway that was dotted with Magnolia Trees in bloom. Mississippi was really very pretty too. I am not sure what I was expecting but it was surprising just how pretty places like Jackson, and Natchez, MS are. Just a bit to humid for me.
The Guys had a long day and are getting tired, but are still up to the challenge. They turned in a time of 0.28 ; 0.51 ; 1.21 ; 2.00 ; 5.00 with placement for the day of 74th. As you can see the later in the day, the harder it is to stay focused. This is what this Race is all about, a challenge of a Vintage Car and the Driver and Navigator to stay focused, and work as a team, after 8 days, it starts to take it's toll, with 2 more days left...I know that our Team will be up to the challenge.
When they arrived in Baton Rouge, we received a warm welcome, and were pleased to find that the reception was inside, in the air conditioning. We are staying at the Belle of Baton Rouge on the river. It is a nice place, with a large atrium in the center.
