    South Carolina inlet...

    Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

    I love the way the lacuna in my stomach just grows and grows every quarter of an hour that I push it in the saddle, the feeling of the next hunger pang finding its way through my system, and knowing that those peanut butter + jam sandwiches or those baked beans will do a damn good job filling up that expanding vacuum of nothingness in my guts.

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

    Myrtle Beach seems to be a pretty happening place. Nice beach, lots of young graduates on holiday, heaps of crap souvenir/bikini/surf gear stores. I’m not really part of all that, so I opt for a little cat nap in the sun instead…

    Myrtle Beach entertainment...

    At a Dunkin’ Donuts I set up my laptop office and enjoy a few hours of free wireless in return for buying a 1$ coffee latte, small version. Pretty good deal.

    Oh-ohh...Coming MY way...

    Yup, I got hit by the crazy downpours just minutes later. I found shelter in a Dollar General store where I walked the aisles for some 25 minutes, waiting for the rain to stop, and ended up just buying some cans of food and a soda pop.

    The necessity of finding an elevated spot for my tent tonight is greater than ever after the heavy rains near the state border between the Carolinas.

    Just before sunset I turn off Hwy 17 at a Jehovah’s Witnesses church, tempted more by the huge lawn in the back than anything else. It turns out to be a great spot for a bit of guerilla camping. I’m sort of out of sight from the traffic and no one attends this church on a Sunday evening = privacy and another free night for me. The frogs are having an intense frog party in the rain water pools just a stone’s throw away from my camp. Interesting soundtrack.

    On this day..
