Left Cadiz at 7 a.m. and it was another hot day. It was so hot I not only had to hydrate every hour but also had to change clothes because I was soaked by midday.
I headed east on I-24 toward Nashville and made a right turn at Chattanooga on to I-75. When I rode through Atlanta there was a huge accident 20 miles north of the downtown area and traffic was backed up for miles. I ended the day at Valdosta, GA.
Jeff checked in and he is taking the southern route through Little Rock, AR and will travel east to I-75 and proceed south to Key West. I should arrive in Homestead, FL by 3 p.m. tomorrow. I will wait for Jeff’s arrival before heading down to the finished point (Key West).
