i rode in some of it yesterday, there is a lot of sand and anyone riding along it should find an alternative route...almost lost traction the sand on the highway is so bad. and where i live, the city/county aren't too quick about keeping the roads safe.
ride safe!


and this is my 1,000 post...~~~big whoop~~~~ Razz emoticon

one thousand
i just had another look see today...it was so bad, i jumped a curb, got on a sidewalk and rode back to recross the trestle i just rode over. cagers are getting stuck in it. there are whole lanes covered in sand. i tried to wave off a pair of MC riders, heading east. dunno if they completely understood my wailing about the obstacles, over the noise of the wind...it's ferocious! (i'm in shorts, tshirt and flip flops, just doing a bit of riding to make sure everything is boots, after some evap yanking and hose wrestling.
i think i've just been dermabrased!

saw several staging areas of MDOT crews milling about[ uh guys, it's 10 a.m. do you know where the work is?]
still areas of single lane traffic[barely] east bound and there is also an oil seen on the surface. i'll switch to 4 wheels today and 20 mpg titan cage...
was pretty thundery/lightningy and windy last night...flooded areas as well...

Be careful. Were supposed to be getting some bad rain tomorrow and Saturday. Sand on the road is lethal.Almost as bad as black ice.

well, incredibly, the roads are still pretty bad. i only rode down a,little bit of hwy 90 between 'my' street and then west over the bridge to bay st. louis.
on this end, there is plenty of sand still on the roads, mostly along the curbs, across intersections and at stop/yield cross intersections and the parking bays for beach recreation. very treacherous. this happened last year as well. they left the sand at the intersections for months...if you're in the area, please be very careful.
i have a project tomorrow and i'll check more of the highway to the east, prob. as far as biloxi.
i took a title time off, walked the beach and picked up litter. saw an osprey leaving with something, i guess it found dinner...
