Marianna FL to Tallahassee FL ( 73 miles )
This morning at breakfast I met 4 of the members of the newly crowned 2011 National Senior Games Under 65 Women's Softball champions. Lois has re-kindled my next challenge of making the Men's 50 year old Badminton tournament In Houston in 2015. How do I get ready for that now? Book your tickets to Houston and learn more here.
Standard ride into Tallahassee, rolling hills, great roads (although no shoulders a couple times), routed through a couple country seats and court houses to see, a very good bicycle chasing dog today ( bigger than medium size, smaller than a big dog. good effort, thought he was going to get catch me ). Lost an hour today in Quincy FL as I traveled back into Eastern Time zone. Rode through Florida State University and then settled into the Howard Johnson.
Thanks Lois for setting up my next challenge. ( boy she grabbed right a hold of me for that picture )
I've seen the Tallahassee mileage sign the last 4 days! Finally catching it today.
Beautiful Florida Sunday morning.
I'm so confused.... This is the bridge over the Apilachicola River, from Lake Seminole ( that's in Georgia ) that is right before Chatahoochee FL.
They made it up the 8% grade from the bridge to Chatahoochee! They aren't long hills, but they burn the thighs.
I am so confused, where am I?
The old Gretna FL school house.
Courthouse in Quincy FL
Poor old man, took almost 10 minutes to help him find his way to Tallahassee. I hope he made it. Aaron had to lend a hand with a map and the local drove him up to the highway to make sure he found it. ( kind of glad he didn't go on our route )
Pine trees, clean road, low traffic. just cruising along.
I-10 always in our sight for the last 5 weeks since California.
They are all over the place, but we've not had any yet... Probably going to need to have a Waffle House omelet in Georgia this week.
It was truck stop day. Started off with one and last stop was one.
Finally, got a pose from Aleena!!
5th car from the left, that's my Freestyle. Obviously Kelly sold it. I haven't driven a car in OVER 5 WEEKS!!
Florida State University day. Bowden, I said we are going that way!!
What am I a dog peeing on something. I really need to work on my Heisman pose, this is awful and it was my second take.
That's it, all the field I could see.
The main entrance to the FSU mecca.
Just a campus shot.
Damn, I haven't been Pavin' The Way that long. Seriously since 1851?
And the afternoon Florida thunderstorm.
