Phew, finally made it to the east coast by the skin of my teeth. Hard to believe it's been nearly six months and 2700 miles on the road: a hard road sometimes for sure but one full of wonders that I've been so lucky to complete.

Hello y'all, as they say in the South. Well, in less than two weeks I hope to be plunging into the sea at Savannah in celebration, having walked from the west coast of America to the east coast (provided my visa hasn't expired!).

This post is all about lush and complicated Mississippi. Mississippi is my smallest, quickest state to date but made a huge impact, its beauty, its history, its contradictions.

Update from the last action-packed days in Texas. I've covered 200 miles in a week and a half so now a bit weary and laundry ripe enough to dance the tango.
