Sorry, I didn’t know the map wasn’t updating the last 4 days…
I cleared Illinois, Kentucky, and by tomorrow I’ll clear Tennessee… into Mississippi!
The Where Am I map is back up and working now!
Today I woke up late after resting all of Day 28, the day before. I said goodbye to Matt at the front desk of the Len Haven Motel and headed out.
I stopped just outside of town to put on gloves, hat, and jacket. Since I was already stopped, I figured it was a good a time as any to eat, so I devoured leftover pulled pork and a banana. A Martin police officer stopped to see if I needed anything while I was putting on the clothing and we chatted for a few minutes.
The rain started about then and after biking for over an hour, I stopped in Greenfield to have lunch. I opted for the buffet and was waited on by a sweet young lady named, JJ. Shortly there after another woman stopped by and we chatted about what I was doing. She introduced herself as Renee and explained that had gypsy blood and traveled all over the world during her life. Renee brought JJ over to the table and introduced her as her daughter.
I rolled out of Greenfield and down the country roads on my way to Jackson. I reached Jackson just after dark and booked myself a room to dry out my boots and clothing.
When I got to my room I opened up the dessert that Renee had boxed for me and found a delicious piece of pie and a very gracious note.
