The Natchez Trace: A faster, flatter and straighter version of the Blue Ridge Parkway. A great place for 35mph cruising
A few months ago, a weary paddler climbed up the bluff to overlook the river and charge a phone. Today I ride La Tortuga in to town on the Trace, an idea that formulated when sitting in this very same park. It is amazing how fast the scenery passes and one trio overlaps another. The same thought flashed in my mind yesterday while crossing the Tombigbee in Tuscaloosa for the 4th time.
In May 2014 I quit my job to ride a Honda Ruckus over 59'000 mi and counting. Wild camping most nights and cooking most of my own meals, I keep the costs low and the landscape changing.
