Day 47 and More

Hey everyone, it is day 47, and I know I had written other daily blogs, but apparently, they have disappeared into the ethersphere!  So, let’s do a quick catch up.  I made it to Florida, and it felt amazing!  Rode through Pensacola and then into Fort Walton Beach, and was …

Day 42, Ocean Springs, MS to Gulf Shores, AL

Hey there everyone!  So, you may have noticed that I ended my day yesterday in Vancleave, MS, but I started my day today in Ocean Springs. Because there were no hotels up where we finished, we ended up driving due south of our ending location and staying on the coast …

Day 41, Poplarville, MS to Vancleave, MS

Can you believe it is day 41?! The day didn’t start out as I had envisioned.  First, we had to drive 70 miles to Gulfport, MS to drop off my phone at the “approved” repair place for my phone to be covered by my insurance.  They didn’t open until 10, …

Day 39 and 40

Well, I did it again, missed another day!  I am gonna blame it on preparing for daylight savings time.  But seriously, on day 39 I rode from Jackson, LA to Frankinton, LA, 73 miles.  It was a challenging day with 73 miles of up and down.  I have to say, …

Day 36, Deridder, LA to Mamou, LA

Wow, interesting day indeed.  I had just been saying how great I am feeling, and then reality hits me directly in the face (and head) today.  The day started out as all my other days, felt fine getting up, although I did have more tightness in my neck.  As soon …

Day 35, Silsbee, TX to Deridder, LA

Wow, day 35, and I am finally out of the state of Texas.  Don’t get me wrong, we have fallen in love with certain town and areas we have passed through, enough that we want to come back!  Today I talked about being open minded, and when Deb and I …

What a dummy I am!!

So, I just finished day 34 of my 3,000 plus mile bike ride from San Diego, CA to Jacksonville, FL.  I am a real dummy!!! I have been journaling every day in a notebook instead of just coming here and putting my day down on my blog. So, with that …

High Winds in The Forecast

This morning I woke up with all intentions of riding, but when I looked at the weather forecast, I saw that the winds were blowing 16-18 mph out of the west.  From where we are located here near Panama City, the only safe and logical direction for me to ride …

Turning 60, The Journey Begins!

Wow, 60 years old, what a milestone!  As I approached this “milestone” birthday, I have to say I experienced more stress than any other birthday.  I have tried to pinpoint the reason, but can’t put my finger on it. As I thought about it, I took myself back to when …
