Day 12 — Time traveling and dead reckoning

Miles today: 42

Miles total: 405

I crossed time zones today! I’m now in the central time zone. Yipee! My GPS was unhappy about it though and right at the instant I crossed, it shut down and wouldn’t come back on. I had to do a factory reset on it when I got here to the Lake Seminole Inn. So, I had to use dead reckoning to add the extra miles in. I was planning on camping, but when I saw this motel, I thought I’d stop in and check the price for a room. It was only 10 bucks more than the campground and to me, that’s well worth the AC, real bed and continental breakfast.

Now for the pix:

Here’s Bernard. From South Africa, but now lives in Miami. He’s a bicycle enthusiast and builds his own bikes. He just built one that weighs around 16 pounds! Bernard recently returned from South Africa where he raced in a 70 mile ride. He says he rides around 400 miles a week!IMG_1849

 

 

Here’s R.C. He was fishing near Quincy. I was taking a pretzel break and started talking to him. I think he thought I was out to mug him. He stealthily picked up a filet knife as I approached him. Once we started talking, he realized I was just crazy but harmless.IMG_1850

 

Here’s some houses in Quincy. It looks like a nice place to live. Really quiet and lots of old live oaks with moss draped over them.IMG_1851 IMG_1852 IMG_1853 IMG_1854

 

This one’s for sale. $295kIMG_1856
