I got as much stuff done as I can for now and I’m well rested and feel great. When I left Merritt Island on June 1st, I weighed myself using the scale at Publix and weighed in at 192 lbs. Using the scale again at a Publix here in
Naples Marco Island, I’m down to 187 lbs. I’m sure I was probably less than that when I first arrived but I’m sure I gained a few pounds back from slacking off. All in all it’s still a net loss of 5 lbs. GO ME!
Just as the sun starts to rise in the morning I’ll be back on the road headed north up Tamiami Trail (Rt.41) toward the Gulf Coast. This time I’ll be looking at campgrounds to stay at and hoping they have WiFi and fewer mosquitoes than here.
I won’t be able to cross Tampa Bay via the Sunshine Skyway Bridge into St. Petersburg, which would be awesome, so I’ll have to go the long way around and pick one of the 3 bridges over Old Tamp Bay. But that’s my projected heading and I don’t expect to go much further than Ft. Myers at most in one day. My target for now is Koreshan State Park just north of Bonita Springs. A comfortable 35 mile ride.
The only problem now is that I’ve spent so much time in air conditioning I won’t be perspiring, I’ll be condensating. 🙂
Someone was here before me! I liked the browns in this photo.
