Day Two on the road to Ottawa

We left Louisiana, went through Mississippi and stopped west of Birlingham, Alabama for the night. They're doing a lot of road construction in Mississippi and they need it as highway 20 has dips and waves that causes you to bottom out if traveling over 50mph. 289 miles for the day.
Found that fuel is much cheaper at home in Livingston, Texas where diesel was $3.59 when we left but we had to pay $3.81 in Mississippi.
The weather has stayed very hot except for the thunder storm yesterday. Everyone is happy the air conditioner in the motorhome is working well.
We're keeping an eye on Hurricane Irene and have decided to change our route and keep more inland on our way north.
