December 3rd 2015 we set off from the tiny town of Hodges, Alabama on our tandem bicycle. We cycled into Mississippi and rolled down the beautiful Natchez Trace Parkway, a historic trail which extends 440 miles from Nashville, Tennessee to the old port town of Natchez, Mississippi.
From Natchez we cruised down the west side of the Mississippi river before entering our third state, Louisiana. Here, we followed the rice paddies, and bayous into the the ranch country of Texas.
Battling winter storms, heatwaves, and monumental headwinds, we finally made it to the capital of Texas, Austin, where we took a week off and rang in the New Year, and ate our weight in burritos.
Total so far: 924 miles.
