I spoke to Gerry just after he had had lunch. So far he has done 28.32 miles today and it was 37 degrees He is in the bible belt & has gone through 3 countries today where you can’t drink alcohol.
He went through Salem, a small village where he was hoping to get some water, which was just like a ghost town, where the only building that appeared to be occupied was the post office.
He will soon be cycling to Alabama where he wants to try typical Cajun food, grits & gumbo. Just before he gets there he will cross into an other time zone and will then be 6 hours behind us.
He will then head to Pensacola and cross the Mississippi river to New Orleans, where he has been told some parts can be dangerous.
All restaurants give Gerry iced water to take with him. He was just north of Perry hoping to get to Tallahassie, 52.3 miles away tonight. The trike is performing well with no problems at all so far.
