BRAG Day 4

It was a great ride today. 61 miles past the bird dog pet cemetery through pecan groves. I was riding we hit the Millen city limits and I couldn't believe I missed it on the route map. I tried to call Joyce my mother in law to apologize for not letting her know I was coming through town. 

On to Metter #betterinmetter  tomorrow is a 70 mile day to Jessup. 

BRAG Day 3

Day 3 was rest day. We had sever storm roll through that night and the sirens went off and the tent campers had to evacuate to buildings. I slept through the whole thing. Got a good rest and ready for Thursday.

BRAG Day 2

Another long hot ride with hills that would not quit. Going through 2 large bottles of water every 15 miles. 

This was one of the farms we passed on the way. Stopped to take a picture and because there was shade. 

Heidei, myself, Linda and Jourgen at a rest stop. I met them all last year on the ride so was glade to have them to ride with again. Heidei and Jourgen lived in Gottening near Uslar whet I base camped while in Germany so lots of good stories. 

We climbed this hill while being followed by these trucks. It was interesting to say the least. 

Selfie as I was passed by a big John Deere tractor. He went into the othe lane to get around me.

BRAG Day 1

60+ miles to Thompson Ga. It was hot and long. They have these strange things called HILLS that we don't have in Savannah. The town has turned out in droves and throwing a big party for the Riders. Had a great dinner and now listening to Daniel Johnson Band performing at the railroad depot.
