    Well, weather was great all the way
    We crossed the Mississippi at Greenville, MS.
    A big new bridge over the flooding, and US 82 was clean and dry.
    Though we horribly underestimated the time it took to stay on the back roads.
    We arrived a day late and missed the festivities.
    We will hang out in Sunny Florida until after Memorial Day, and the start making our way north.

    There's lots of road construction throughout the city of Lancaster, fyi.

    Are you meeting friendly sociable people as you cross the continent? Perverse cranky grunters? Come in and let us feed you a roast hog with the family?

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Yes, we are meeting some very friendly folks.
    We avoid politics. That keeps the conversations toned down.

    Our home for the Month of May is pretty interesting:

    Summer is beginning to set in.
    the highs are in the mid-90s (f) and a cloud has not impeded the Sun for nearly a week.

    So far the MH has been quite comfy.
    We are probably 100-150 yrds from the Lions' enclave at the park, and we awake to their early morning huffing and puffing at each other.
    Sadly, in the park, itself, the Lions are fenced off from the area were people drive their cars. Apparently a few years ago, some idiot decided to not only ignore the warnings against opening your windows, but he even got out of the car to go try and touch one of the critters who lay napping.

    It did not turn out well for him, or his cohorts who waiting in the car.
    Park personnel managed to rescue his buddies in the car before they were extracted by the angry Feline.

    It sounds the sort of place one would remember in vivid detail.

    We also had our hottest day of the year so far, the temperature peaked into the 70s. I took off my turtleneck. Jowan and I backpacked into a campsite at St Ives. We swam in the pool and then watched the sunset, and when he woke up in the morning he was eight. He swam again after we packed, then we took a long-way-round open-top sightseeing bus back home. Not exactly in the same league as touring the continent in an RV but outdoors at least. We saw no lions. Two rabbits though, if they count.

    Wish we could. The humidity is about to break me.
    and we are working our way up the Eastern Seaboard in the heat of Summer.
    Brilliant
