    I miss this connection to my fvorite vacation spot of California and to New orleans as well.I-10 is one of the bumpiest pieces of interstate in the whole nation, especially in Mississippi and New Orleans, whose money from their caSINos were to fix the roads, but blew that money on building more new roads instead. Been there, done that riding the bus cross country, and never again.
