During the last week I have walked from Mobile to Amite City and encountered a lot of southern hospitality along the way. After socializing in Mobile there followed some hot days on the road with some strange campsites. Another great week on the road, hear all about it on the podcast and check out the pictures below.

The black board in Mobile where you can write what you want to do before you die… ┬áMaybe a bit morbid now that I think about it. You can guess what I wrote.

My campsite the first night. More or less in the swamp!

The second night I found a much nicer site, a clearing in the forest that appeared to have been cleared to house bee hives.

Finally managed to get a shower and rinse out some clothes at Rogers Lake.

Good manners and moonshine at the campsite in Poplarville. Because nice matters!

My new friend Jeff, hear about how he lost his home to Katrina in the podcast. Still a very generous and kind host even though he now lives under a bridge.
