Day 50 – 40 Miles

Grenada, MS to Enid, MS Total Miles: 2711 I awoke this morning at 7 feeling pretty crummy, my legs were sore and stiff and I had no desire to get on my bike whatsoever. Last night I had decided to pedal another 70 miles towards Arkansas and get a cheap motel and a good nights […]

Day 49 – 65 Miles

Houston, MS to Grenada, MS Total Miles: 2670 Last night after I scoured myself looking for any hidden ticks I laid down in my tent to get some reading done. Not even 5 minutes later I feel this creepy, crawly sensation on my foot and look down to see a tiny little tick walking up […]

Day 47 – 77 Miles

Providence, AL to Pickensville, AL Total Miles: 2527 Editors note: I’ve tried my very hardest over the last 47 days to try and maintain some semblance of family friendliness to my writing, mainly keeping the F-bombs to a bare minimum, but that’s just not the way I talk in real life. It’s been pointed out […]

Day 47 – 61 Miles

Day 46 – 64 Miles

Day 46 – 62 Miles

Milton, FL to Range, AL Total Miles: 2325 I woke up this morning and it was cold and it took a lot of willpower to heave myself out of my sleeping bag. Now the actual temperature was only like 60 but after the last month of Florida heat it felt like the freaking arctic to […]

Day 44 – 44 Miles

Panama City Beach, FL to Destin, FL Total Miles: 2212 Yesterday evening I’m sitting at my camp cooking dinner, parmesan rotini with pepper fried spam, when my camp neighbor walks up. He’s this really young looking guy, maybe 19 or so, and he’s camping out with a bunch of his equally young looking friends. He […]

Day 43 – 71 Miles

Apalachicola, FL to Panama City Beach, FL Total Miles: 2168 So yesterday didn’t turn into quite the barrel of sunshine that I thought it would be. I had planned on camping in one of the city parks which I was assured by my new friend Kevin was totally ok. I mentioned this a little later […]
