Because we diverted off of the AdventureCycling maps so we could make it into Jacksonville, we found ourselves in the middle of road construcion: walking and pushing a heavy bike in the sand=rethinking off map riding!
A favorite of the trip: seeing how others live. We get snapshots of life as we experience each town. These lovely fellas were in Sanderson, FL today inside the grocery store, above the meat dept. Nothing says "welcome" like a bunch of stuffed deer watching you shop!

Ever fall off your bike when going 6 mph, up hill, in front cars at stoplight because you're attached to it and for the life of you can't become unattached to it? This is what your leg might look like if you did.
Wild flowers lined the roads from Tallahassee into Jacksonville. This was a field of Black eyed susans
Tim's great about helping with my aches and pains and the trials and tribulations that go along with it: his patience must come from the 6 months of walking he did on the AT. Somehow he must have left his memory on the trail because he manages to forget or to leave things behind frequently. Today we get 6 miles down the road and he's frantically digging through his front bag. Aka, he forgot his phone and headlamp at our campsite at the firestation. Bikes get put down, we flag down a motorist, convince her that Tim's friendly and needs a ride and I stand guard the bikes. 40 minutes later he returns via Police officer!
