Crossing Mississippi (East to west)
« on: August 26, 2011, 01:19:34 pm »
I need advice on crossing the state of Mississippi from the east to west. Because of my ultimate plans I cannot wander too far south of Interstate 20. Any recommendations for U.S. or State highways, roads or cities/towns I might use or should avoid, please post suggestions here. My journey will be a self contained combination of camping and motel (I prefer camping).

Thank you for y'alls help :)

May you always have the winds at your back, and a low enough gear for the grades

I just follow highway 90. It's good enough, and simple too.

You might also want to check the Mississippi DOT resources:

A map can be downloaded from the following page by hovering over Maps until the dropdown menu appears, then choose Bicycle Map.

I downloaded the bicycle map. All I see are a few very short north/south routes on it, unless I'm missing something?


EDIT: There is no U.S. 90 in Miss, only a U.S. 98, and it's too far south. So I am assuming you mean State 90? My map program only shows state route at a magnification of 10 or higher, and I tried scanning through the state north to south, but no 90s appeared on my screen. Can you tell me of a town or city it passes through so I don't have to scour the whole state? Thanks
