Mississippi arrival

It was an interesting day that did not start so well but had a great ending.

Unfortunately, I had another airline issue this time.  Last month when I traveled to Mobile it was lost luggage.  This time it was a cancelled flight from Atlanta to Tupelo.  So I had to wait four hours in Atlanta for the next flight.  Not the end of the world but unfortunate.

Once I got to Tupelo it was smooth sailing.  I rented a car to drive from Tupelo Regional Airport to Oxford.  We had great weather today.  51 and sunny.  The drive was nice.  Once I got to Oxford I picked up my packet before heading to the hotel.

After checking in and getting settled I decided to head to Courthouse Square in downtown Oxford.  I have to say it was really nice at night.  I specifically chose Oxford because it is your iconic, small southern town.  It has a lot of history.  I did not take photos because they wouldn't come out great at night.  But, I'm going back tomorrow after the race to spend the day.

More to come tomorrow.
