ABB NORTH ALUMNI TRIP: NATCHEZ TRACE - June 2011
From Natchez Mississippi to Nashville Tennessee
Some members of America by Bicycle Alumni did a reunion ride from Natchez Mississippi to Nashville Tennessee. Jeff, my husband, rode across the America in the summer of 2010. 11 members from that trip did this ride.
Joe's wife Karen and I helped with the supply and gear cars. We hauled everybody's luggage, set up water and snack stops along the route. And sometimes did some sightseeing on our own.
Jeff and I also visited Washington DC, Ashville NC, Jasper GA and New Orleans LA on our way to Natchez.
Total miles driven 3,525 miles (5,673 km). Natchez Trace itself is 444 miles ( 714.5 km).
