Flashback: Leaving Garnett, SC

We got a visit from super-friends Pete and Lara, where we stayed in a church together in Garnett, SC, then rolled to Statesboro, GA, together for a stay in a heavily discounted mega-swanky hotel. Pete took some video footage and edited it together. Enjoy!

Into the organic coastline

As we head into the everglades, I have learned a few things, the everglades are not a swamp, but rather a slow moving river (about 1/4 mile per day, or just slower than we are moving :)) which forms an organic coastline at the bottom of Florida. From what I understand, an organic coastline is one that is changing through deposits of sand carried by the currents. I have also learned a bit about snakes and aligators, some of which you can see above. That's all for now, thanks for reading and I will post more as soon as I can. Thanks for reading.

The florida you've probably never seen

Aaron and I spent the last few riding days on beautiful rolling hills in central florida, surrounded bu trees, green everywhere and plenty of horses, goats and cows. It was absolutely gorgeous and a reminder to both of us that there is always something you didn't expect, in every state. We have also been fortunate enough to travel on a few of the many bike paths in florida, which is a great way to relax a bit more and get to hang out with the birds and turtles.

A lesson was learned at our campsite, you may have read a bulletin or tow about how raccoons can open zippers, so don't leave food in a bag out side? Well, they are true and I am one apple and some peanuts lighter because of it. Photos soon, thanks for reading.
