    Another frustrating and bug-infested morning in Woodbine, behind a church.
    Second night in a row, I’ve been sleeping in awkward positions and my neck is sore and stiff all morning. Damn, when will I ever get back to life with pillows?

    Wild camp in Woodbine behind a church.

    Hey guys, what have you done to my road?



    Word of the Day:
    So much of what happens in life comes a s a result of your approach. Chris Gardner.

    So true.

    Coffee break in Eulonia, Georgia.

    I feel under a mild pressure all day. I’ve got a contact in Savannah (through Hospitalityclub.org), Don, who’s invited me to come and stay for a little while. It’s nearly 180 km from my morning camp to Savannah, and I know that I have to give all I can in the saddle in order to get to Savannah before sunset. But I told Don that I’d be there today, and so I will. I’m in pitbull mode most of today.

    You can buy this day here – and become a part of the WT Hall of Fame 🙂

    I pass the 49K mark today north of Eulonia, (see the other 1000 km markers here) and I do get to Savannah around 7PM after 3 hours of very intense thunderstorms over Georgia. I was on a mission and just kept pedalling. What else is there to do?

    I crack the 2nd century (100 miles) in 3 days, and I’ve pedalled a total of 461 km in 3 days, or 1.340 km since I left New Orleans, Louisiana 10 days ago. Wuhuuuu…

    Don, a school teacher in his 50s, meet me at his house in Savannah and it feels so good to be indoor, away from the mosquitoes, with a new friend and lots of southern hospitality around. I’ve even got my own room here, wifi, good company and the possibility of the final rounds of tennis from Roland Garros, Paris in TV…As Don and I joke about (though to me it is very true), this i 4-star luxury…

    On this day..
