Spirits are high as we are finally making progress. We're barreling down the road in a convoy that stretchea as far as the eye can see . Lights are flashing . Incredible support along the way. People stopping to cheer us on as we move along. So far only one naked truck driver. Really. The things you can see from a bus. Just joined by a huge Guard convoy travelling with us. One stop already, just into SC to fix the breaks on Med-1. The trucks we have are really straining to pull the massive trailers, loaded to the ceiling with supplies. We're all so proud to be a part of such an effort. Already missing Melissa, Jackson, and Berk. Latest is we're staging in Jackson and onto deeper South. Maybe New Orleans, maybe Gulfport. People in droves waving anything they can find out their windows. Great stuff.
