So last Monday I started about 6:30am stopped at Subway ordered 6" sub all the way and water to drink. That night I stayed in Atalla, AL. It did start to rain the last 2 miles. 51 miles, found a Best Western to stay at. Boy it was not cheap... Took a shower to warm up. Ordered a small pizza, bread sticks and two drinks. Caught up on text msgs, emails, and calls. Made blog entery, Got some sleep.
Tuesday up and left by 8:30 am then I peddled 57 miles to a spot called Waldo, AL - Dark just set in so I stayed under the awning of an old gas station, that was Tuesday night. Cell coverage was poor and battery power down to 27%. It sucks up juice looking for those cell towers. Left msg with Sharon. Had a couple honey buns and a poweraid drink.
Wednesday, took off after the morning had good light. No signal - almost no power left; by 1:30 pm I made it to Goodwater, the last 2 miles again it poured down rain solid. Not to mention the last 1.5 miles was fresh tar on the both sides of the road. I found a Pig Wiggly store with coke machines outside. So I parked Onyx, and dryed off and changed shirts, the store manager offer coffee which I gladly took to warm up. ate a couple honey buns, peanuts and drank water as well. Plugged up cell phone and put a 30% on it. No signal, darn. So I plotted my course to Alexander City, AL. I tried the cell at 13 miles out from Alex city, still no cell service. Finally got a signal when I stopped out at 3 mile till Alex City. Everyone was looking for me! Finished the 3 miles in at stopped a Huddle House. Had a good meal and found a place to stay. Planning to finish the next 35 miles on Thursday.
