States as of today:

Day Four:  TUESDAY, August 7th.  Charleston, WV to Atlanta   ~ 450 miles


I spent the first part of the ride today riding the sweepers of West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and the Carolinas.  Nice….    Definitely worth returning to sometime in the future to find all of the secret roads that are hiding in these hills.


The heat really kicked in by mid-afternoon, and I found myself needing to stop about every 60 miles or so.  Luckily, I was invited to Ian and Dee Dee Schmiesser’s for dinner (in Atlanta) so my day of riding ended early and I had an opportunity to visit with these old friends.  Dinner was great, the conversation was delightful. 


According to the map, I now have 23 states checked off on my list.  How cool is that?! 


I plan to be on the road by 5 AM in the morning, heading for Montgomery Alabama and then on to Pensacola, Fl, before heading towards Jackson MS and Shreveport, LA.
