Today was cold. And lots of mean, nasty hills. And I fell a couple of times. Ouch.
But your intrepid unicyclist pushed on in spite of all obstacles and is now resting comfortably in the Sunshine Inn in Dallas, GA.
So I’m not dead yet.
Sometimes I felt like it though, specially when I was resting beside the trail, and 5 minutes later I see vultures circling above me.
That was a bit disconcerting. So I moved my arms and my legs just to make sure to let the vultures know that they would have a fight on their hands if they came after me, expecting dinner.
And many thanks to Amy Scheid of the Paulding County Chamber of Commerce, who watched me tumble in exhausted and disoriented and offered to give me a ride to the hotel. I figured that would take some of the mileage away from my goal of 200 miles, but I said yes anyway. Tomorrow morning, Shelly from the Sunshine Inn also offered to give me a ride back to the Silver Comet Trail. I will have her drop me off at the Tara Drummond Trailhead, which is 24.5 miles away from the beginning of the trail in Smyrna.
Since I’m currently sitting on 180 miles for the trip, that will put me over the top. Leaving tomorrow at 9 am; hope to arrive at the 0 mile marker by 1:00 pm.
And on the 7th day – upon arrival I will rest.
