Today, I got a late start riding, so I could visit with my wonderful niece, Jen and her husband Andy. So, I made this a short day, just because I wanted to! I’m staying at a great little campground just outside of High Springs. Hot showers, yes!

I stopped at a convenience store in Alachua for pretzels and fruit punch. Here’s David, originally from Massachusetts, now living in Florida. He rides his Harley all over the country. He’s ridden to Alaska and back and across the country too. Very cool dude.
Here’s Stanley, I met him too at convenience store. He re-built classic bicycles for fun in college. Also a cool dude. The convenience store lady was cool too and asked me a lot about my trip. I forgot to get her name and a pic, sorry.
Here’s me, pretending to blog.Here’s my neighbors at the campground. Brian and Kim. He’s a full-time student at Santa Fe College, changing careers from being a builder to being a counselor. She’s new to the area and hoping to get a job soon. They are the best kind of neighbors to have. When they went to dinner, they brought me back chicken wings, french fries & cole slaw. Mmmm. Also, notice my big ol’ Corona.That hit the spot. Now I turn in.
