Another 7:15 start with cloudy weather and it stayed cloudy all morning which is nice. Once the sun came out it was again hot. Leaving Statesboro was not fun as it was a 2 lane simi busy road with a scarfed white side line and small shoulder on the outside of the line. So I spent most of the time on the very narrow shoulder which requires a lot of concentration. Going over the scarf is jarring and actually nocked my phone off twice into the grass. I have it handle bar mounted. I also found that I was not properly latching the phone in place so now that is fixed. The ride finally got to very uninteresting back roads with few places to stop. I did pass a corner peanut stand with 8 people hand picking the peanuts off the plants and selling them. I crossed the Savannah river about noon into South Carolina. A pretty river but in a severe flood stage with all the woods around it flooded. So far SC feels different than Georgia, probably because I have not had the opportunity to talk to many people. I did eat lunch a Brenda’s a small convenience store in Robertville SC. This is a place that my friends Jim and Mary stopped at on their last year Atlantic Coast ride, unfortunately Brenda was not there. Michele had shipped my other saddle yesterday to a KOA Campground at South Point and I picked it up and checked into a motel. It was a very nice campground and the owners are great! I will try the different saddle tomorrow to see if it releaves some pain. The ride tomorrow is 85 miles. Legs are tired tonight, I have been biking today in a higher gear with lower cadence, it seemed to help the saddle problem. So as I’ve been peddling through the south Michele has had a very busy week at the Inn and hosts Middlebury College parents this weekend as they bring in their new freshman! Always an exciting fun weekend! Tomorrow to Monks Corner SC.
