Day 14 — 14.287514 percent complete!

Miles today: 42

Miles total: 492

Today I reached the milestone of completing one segment of the 7 segment ride. St. Augustine to DeFuniak Springs, 424.5 miles plus some extra miles getting lost. A nice bed and AC won out again over camping. Starting to see a trend, eh? The GPS temp hit 108 again today. The ride average temp was 86. It really didn’t feel that hot except when I stopped. And the mosquitos track you down when you’re stopped, so it’s best not to dilly dally. The love bugs are annoying at times too, but I don’t think they’re at their peak yet. I start using Map 6 tomorrow (they run in reverse when going east to west). If today was any indication, it looks like I’ll be riding through some rolling hills, so my progress may slow a bit. We’ll see. Oh we will, will we.

Here’s the pix:

Stopped for a big coke and a big Reese’s candy bar.

Ponce de Leon. The town wasn’t much bigger than the sign. No fountain of youth, either.
