Last year I took my beat up old dodge for a ride down HWY 90 to Biloxi. There are no gaps in the people, tents or cars. Bonfires, jet skis and suntanners litter all the beaches. Every club is packed, the whole coast is teaming with people. The Cars? Holy Toledo the cars are everywhere! There is cars all the way out to I-10.
Swap meets, flea markets, craft booths, local bands, crab boils, seafood, BBQ, on and on and on.
One Helluva Shinding!

I'll be doing my annual gawking next weekend.
