This morning I had to try the biscuits and gravy. They’re good fuel for riding. I had nutritional stuff too, like sausage and bacon and bagels with cream cheese. It’s great eating whatever you want so you don’t lose too much weight riding a bicycle everyday. But you know I can’t wait for Big Hols food again.
Today it was 27 degrees but sunny and at the end I think it reached 37. Remember the episode where Joey puts on all the clothes? That’s what I did this morning with all the bike stuff I own. I had two hats on, as well as four layers under my lime green windbreaker and I put plastic bags over my socks inside my shoes which were covered with bootties. I was fine but I would rather be too hot any day than ride in the cold.
We had one last dog chase us out of Mississippi but he was really just running with us and barking, not actually attacking. It’s happened enough that we can read the dogs now. The ride in Alabama was free of dogs. No excitement at all.
We have finished this section and next year sometime we will begin here where we left off and make all the way to St. Augustine, Florida. After the first few days, the ride improved or maybe it was my attitude. Having Matt helped as he loves to ride in the cold and nothing seems to bother him. We loved having him join the Brothers and I hope he can join us next year along with any other nieces or nephews. The more the merrier.
