...which would require a very boring hour-long roundtrip drive along 84...

I'd stick to Natchez and avoid lengthy sidetrips.

I thought the US 98 terminus was where US 84/US 425 met the US 61/US 98 concurrency end? At least that's what the signage shows:

https://www.google.com/maps/@31.5297447,-91.3872213,3a,75y,67.31h,90t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s2FwuLxhrySV8ADRBw7sY0g!2e0!7i16384!8i8192?hl=en

Probably a replace-in-kind contractor error from when that intersection was rebuilt. Most of the rest of the signage along US 61 to the US 84 split is "To US 98," as the endpoint was truncated back to the intersection of 98 and 84.

A.J. Bertin:
I am potentially interested, as well.

Alps:
Dibs on hanging out with you without the meet crowd around. This is my excuse to clinch the Natchez Trace Pkwy.

I was just out there last week, as part of an attempt to clinch US 84 (the part west of the Mississippi, including unclinched mileage in west Texas, was postponed for obvious reasons). I agree the signage in the field is ambiguous, including US 98 signage in more than one place along US 84. But the 2020 Mississippi state highway map has US 84 west of the US 98 junction near Bude marked only as US 84.

My potential interest in a Natchez meet is moderate. I visited Natchez on my way to your Jackson meet a few years ago, after clinching the Natchez Trace Parkway, but not this year (except to the northern US 61/84 junction, where I turned back east).

Brandon:
Sounds like fun.  Count me in.
