Bah. I made it to a friend's house about 40 miles south-southwest of Clarksdale in a skoosh over 7 hours. (01:40 start time Sunday morning with an 08:51 arrival) Of course, the only bit of Interstate I drove on was I-20 in Vicksburg, where US-61 shares pavement with it for a few miles. The way back in on Wednesday was more like more like 9.5 hours due in part to a 10:30 start, and some truly impressive rain to drive through. Would have taken longer, but I hopped the River at Natchez, and took La-15 from the Vidallia area to La-1. Gods, I don't think I've driven anyplace that isolated & empty since I moved back from New Mexico...
