I put the date on today's blog because I didn't realize it was October. I have no concept of space or time, except to know that I hope to finish next Wednesday.
There have been some uneventful days in the past but this one was especially uninteresting. I rode rolling hills all day along on Fl. Hwy. 90 East, which parallels Interstate I10 for a long way.
Mark stayed with me until lunch time and then he headed back to meet Larissa and the kids in Gulf Shores.
How do I again express my thanks for having such great friends. Mark was another patient angel, waiting down the road every couple of miles.
Roger found me about 4:30 this afternoon in Cottondale, Fl.. Today was the latest I had been on the road this entire trip. We got to the motel about 5:30 PM.
Part of that was caused by a late start this morning. As I rolled out of Fred and Nicole's I noticed the back end of the bike was soft. I looked down and the tire was about half deflated. Sure enough I found a quarter inch sliver of metal in the tread. Changing the tire took way longer than it should have, but I haven't much experience changing tires as this is only the second flat I've had.
By the way, have I mentioned that "Alabama the Beautiful" is a stupid slogan? What does that mean anyway? C'mon man!
Here's all four pictures:
Wow, that's beautiful.
Even better from this angle.
Even slow days have a picture of the Steed. Hey Walton, what was the name of the dog in John Wayne's movie, "Big Jake?"
You can be anywhere and find somebody with political issues.
Any shoulder is better than no shoulder.
Lunch in DeFuniak Springs, Fl..
Hey, is that Roger's car?
If you think Florida is flat, think again.
Which way do I go? Which way do I go?
Go East Young Man!
