December 9 - Stuart, Florida

A tailwind is a terrible thing to waste. 113 miles. The first 100 or so was along the A1A past miles and miles of oceanfront mansions and swanky condos. I went through Palm Beach and shared the road with Bentleys and Rolls Royces. It was a very nice cruise today. Here's a picture from Palm Beach.

While the road is great, and the scenery is great, the availability of camping or cheap lodging is very bad. I'm going to try to pile up the miles to get out of Florida so things get affordable again. I'm in the redneck town of Stuart, where the cheapest motel room is $74 and people lean on their horns and yell stuff at you.
