I put on the miles today and linked up with most of the other guys, Greg McFarland, Dean and Chris. My brother, Greg Smith, is still waiting to get clearance from his doctor so he can join us, but he assures me his collarbone is on the mend and he already has a full range of motion.
Today was the least scenic of all the days so far. I was forced to hit the main roads, instead of the beautiful back roads, in an all-out effort to catch up with my comrades. Still, I continue to meet wonderful people and stop at great stores. My lunch was at a gas station with ribs and fresh fruit (the plumbs were excellent). And to think I thought I’d be stuck with jerky and slushies.
