Please beware of HWY 49 south of jackson. There's a section from about Florence to the Simpson County line that has bad issues with the road buckleing or buldging due to heat. Last few weeks it's been terrible. Today while headed to jackson I ran over a joint that I left the ground for 20 or more feet. It worked like a ramp and I barely controled the bike when it touched down again. Two weeks ago I saw an older couple being hauled off in an ambulance due to hitting one about the Jerry's fish house location. The lady was less a lot of hide due to hitting the pavement.
