In which law enforcement gives me a hand

Wheel full 70px So here’s the story on last night.

Wheel full 70px As the campground I was headed to turned out to be closed down, I was without accommodations when I arrived at the little town I had set as my goal for day two of this ride. There were no other accommodations available without another 25 miles of riding. I wound up at about 7:00 p.m. in a convenience store where pretty much everyone wanted to be helpful (but nobody appeared to want a tent in their own front yard or else didn’t live in town). Finally about nine in the evening after several hours of nothing panning out I called the sheriff’s department, which sent over an officer who looked me and the packed bike over, said “you’re legit,” and accompanied me to a city park where he indicated that I could put my tent anywhere I would like. So, in the dark, I took my tent out for the very first time and fumbled my way through setting it up.


Wheel full 70px Not bad, eh?

Wheel full 70px So today I am going to take it very easy, planning to do 33 miles to Newberry, Florida.  There is a small mom ‘n pop motel there in the center of town.


Wheel full 70px It’s very hot.  We’ll see how this goes.

  1. When you stop beside the highway, make sue to check where you put your feet, you do not want to do the fire ant striptease.

    I thought that Lake Butler had an RV park?

  2. Has anyone heard from David today? The last time he communicated with me was it 930 Alaska time/130 Florida time. It is now 630 Alaska time/10:30 PM Florida time. I am worried sick. I am about to call the Florida state police if I did not hear from him soon.

  3. Finally talked to David around midnight Florida time. Dead cellphone issues were a major part of the communication problems. It was a long day for him and he’s getting some much needed rest tonight.
