Finally got caught up over the weekend. Still in Alabama, west of Tuscaloosa, but just a few miles from crossing into Mississippi, the seventh state on my eight-state journey.

I'm just outside Fayette, Alabama, or what the town's website calls "The Souths [sic] Best Kept Secret." There's this enticement: "Fayette enjoys a temperate Southern climate, plenty of fresh air and clean water, and folks who understand the value of hard work. It is an unbeatable combination, one of which we are justifiably proud." Air, water and workers. Also, the city website is for sale.
