Ninety miles today, and they were about as easy as could be. It was totally flat, with a stiff tailwind. I went through the Big Gum Swamp Wilderness Area in Osceola National Forest. For 30 miles, it looked just like this.
For the next week or so I'm riding with my friend Jim. We're doing motels. No more camping in the tent. I met Jim at the Jacksonville Airport.
The Jacksonville airport is really low key. I just rode my bike right into the door to the baggage claim area. A half hour later, Jim arrived and put his bike together.
Thanksgiving is always a food challenge. I found a Waffle House for breakfast back in Lake City, and I only had to eat one giant Snickers bar to make it here, the Days Inn next to the airport. There is a Ruby Tuesday across the street that was open for dinner. They even had turkey.
Here is the route for today. There was about 15 miles through a bit of Georgia, which was all swamp that looks just like the Florida Swamp.
