Almost Three Years Later...

An interim has almost ended.

Much has changed since Laura passed.
I have conceived a new adventure...
I have left WV, moved to VA trying to develop a plan for the second half of my life.

I have many opportunities to explore. Life is stimulating... Good and bad...

It's time to get serious about making my midlife report...
God, prepare for an ear full.

This is a Duck that Laura Bought for me on the Day she Died...

I recovered this duck statue from the back seat of the wrecked Honda at the junkyard. I recovered all the pieces I could find.
Laura died on December 20th. She was 15.
I am broken... I think I'm done with this blog...

St. Augustine Beach

Atlantic ocean! Trip over... Relief!
Much to reflect upon.
Dad and Shell are due in town any time. It will be wonderful to see them.
I'm still too frazzled to add much...
Managed to get this picture to load.

The Lord is still with me ( evidenced in picture ) in spite of my foulness the past few days.

Thank you all for your prayers, blessings and kind words of encouragement.

St. Augustine Beach, Florida

107 miles today... 3078 miles total
I'm Done!
2 flats
Man, I was animal and machine! I wanted to finish... I took a couple of sticky short-cuts... But it was worth it... I feel exhausted and elated...
Passed thru gainsville and other towns...
One encounter with a hostile motorist that I may share later... Right now, i'm enjoying a guinness and waiting for a med rare steak....
Many, many pictures to share... Will upload pix and stories in next few weeks after I decompress.
i'm pretty rung-out after fighting cars and traffic for road space...
God Bless Us All!

Greenville to high springs florida

92 miles
I didn't think I had it in me to go this far today. I traversed a lot of park property and the suwahnee river... Quite honestly, I wasn't into the scenery. It was warmer today... More comfortable for riding today.
About 120 miles to go...

P.s. Pj, thanks for tuning in... ( how do I know you?)

Quincy to greenville florida

85 miles
Went through tallahassee... Very busy town...
LOts of hills.. I thought fla was supposed to be flat...
Very cold last two mornings... Upper 30's - uncomfortable for biking. Hard to steer when shivering. No hotels nearby - so camped behind a little church outside of town.
Generally, I like biking when little towns crop up every 10-20 miles.
About 225 miles to finish. Very anxious to be done. I hope it warms up a little. I'm pretty cozy in my tent, but getting out of sleeping bag in a.m. when it's cold is difficult.
I've been pushing myself a bit... feeling tired and cranky... Getting pretty good at 1000 yard stare when I take breaks.
Hopefully done in 3 more days... We'll see!
