Day 4: Reaching the end of the road

Greetings from Piedmont Alabama.

I left my hotel in Jacksonville, AL,  this morning at 8:00 local time and reached the end of Chief  Ladiga Trail, 1 hour later.

Yahoo!! 1/2 way home.

The total distance from Smyrna, GA to Aniston , AL on both the Silver Comet and Chief Ladiga Trail is 94.4 miles.  Adding 6 more miles for distance travel to hotels and back brings the total to 100.4 miles.

In Piedmont, the Country Hearth Inn,   is a place where I stayed before last year.  It’s nice and comfortable and not too fancy (Note: I’m back to drying my clothes using the micro wave again. It was nice having an actual dryer at the last hotel I stayed in).

Because I got here before noon today I thought about going the rest of the way to Cedartown, but that would put me over 50 miles in one day and my body is not able to take that right now.

So I am choosing to have 2 short rides in a row: 25 miles today and the same miles tomorrow.

Taking it easy, eating well, watching movies.

Back to the salt mines tomorrow.

Thanks for your continuous donations and comments. I look forward sharing my videos with you soon.
