Al and Sally

        Al and Sally are a real bonus I had no idea I would experience on my adventure. Al rode the East Coast Greenway from Amelia Island to Key West and back a few years ago and now host cyclists biking the Southern Tier Bike Route.

        They are a team, making sure every need is met. I told them my plan was to meet my son at a hotel in Pensacola. Al invited him to come to their home ans stay the night. Wow….

        As we waited for Mark to come, I gladly performed some chores around the house. Al told me how much fun it was to remove all the leaves from his pool. I bit, reminiscent of a chapter out of the book, Tom Sawyer.

        It was so nice to see my son Mark. He was on his way to Valdosta, Ga. and made a detour to see me. We helped Al mount a table saw to a table and Mark continued his drive east.

        After dinner, I confirmed my plans to ride my bike to New Orleans and then take a bus to San Diego.
