1000 Miles Mark! Gainesville

Posted on

I made the 1,000 miles mark this morning at 11:30. I stayed at the Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park about eight miles south of Gainesville and was returning north to Gainesville.

Special thanks to all my sponsors and supporters for cheering me along. I appreciate and look forward to hearing from everyone!

More to come later. Had to announce this milestone.

    • Gene! Glad you checked in! This brightened up my day for sure! I’m doing pretty well and enjoying the new challenges presented to me everyday. I think the old brain is actually waking up and functioning again. Hope everything is well with you and your family. Say hello to Tom for me and thanks for the well wishes.

  3. Amazing news! I told DH how far you’ve gone and he was impressed, too. I’m becoming addicted to your travels. I check in a couple times during the day hoping for an update. Keep chugging along and if you get really ambitious and land in Idaho we’ll be looking for you.

  4. If you decide to go to Yosemite, stop in Fresno for a shower and a couch and maybe even a meal, if I get ambitious and cook!

    1000 miles is tremendous!!

  6. What happens when the battery in your speedometer runs out, will you lose the mileage or will it be saved? Maybe get a mechanical one that fits on your wheel as a backup?

    Reply
    • When the battery goes low I have to jot down the mileage and re-enter it when I start it up along with re-calibrating the wheel size. I do have an identical backup bike computer with me too.
