This morning we said goodbye to part of the support group. My aunt Pam, my cousin's wife, Rachel, and her son Jordan parted ways with the rest of us as they returned home. I am going to miss them, but I will see them again at the end in Philadelphia. So thank you Aunt Pam and Rachel and Jordan for taking care of me and Jamaal and for providing us with laughs along the way. (Especially Rachel. She actually rode with us one day and we have some embarrassing video of her that we will post soon.) Hope you had a safe trip home.
Despite our short ride today, Jamaal and I felt like we were moving incredibly slow. I think the week's worth of consistent riding finally caught up with us. However, we still made good time and arrived just outside of Savannah at 12PM. We had two television interviews to do when we got to town, so before we went to check in the room, we completed both interviews. Afterwards, we attempted to check in, but they informed us that we couldn't until after 3PM, so we cruised around Savannah in the van, and got a little food.
As soon as we got back, our rooms were ready and everyone took a nap. During my nap, I had that dream again. This time it was not as vivid as the first time, but it was still enough to jerk me out of my sleep. I don't know why I keep having this dream, but it's interesting because I never really dream. (Or I don't remember them, at least.)
We ate dinner at Uncle Bubba's Oyster House. My grandmother wanted to eat there because it is Paula Deen's brother's restaurant. It was quite good despite the 45 minute wait. So between the naps and eating at Bubba's, we didn't have a whole lot of time to sight see. Kind of a bummer, but Sunday isn't the best day to sight see anyways.
Well, folks. Tomorrow we ride to Beaufort, SC. We will have crossed an entire state in 4 days. Not bad timing for being on bikes. We are at 450 miles at this point, and will surpass 500 by tomorrow. We love to hear from everyone and truly appreciate everyone's support. Take care, and we hope your weekend was swell. Our weekend was.
John and Jamaal.
