Solo again. Just needed to log miles, process the changes in my life,with my dad gone. It’s important to me to get home by the 10th. Tomorrow, I should arrive at the gulf coast. It’s supposed to rain and thunder shower throughout the day, though. We’ll see.
Today, I got up and cycled out at 7, but 3 miles down the road, I was delayed 2 hours, due to very foggy conditions. I finally cycled through, hoping it was just over the river, but had fog for an additional hour! We’ll see what tomorrow brings. I’d like to cycle the 65 miles tomorrow, and then do a 40-50 mile day to somewhere near Perdido beach and take a relaxing day of “vacation”. Then hit the road hard again.
That would leave me with 350 miles left, should I choose to catch the train from Jacksonville, or 500 if I go to Tampa. I’ll play that by ear, but timewise, it looks like Jacksonville will fit my timeline best. The heat is tough. My water only lasts about 1.5 hours and convenience stores aren’t that close together. I’m going to have to find a way to carry more water at a time. Fortunately, today the clouds rolled in and gave me some relief.
Here are the pictures. Sorry they are all clumped together.
