Day 49 – “Chattahoochee” Alan Jackson

Mariana to Quincy, FL

54 miles

Total: 2728!

Further inland we traveled today, with the most notable moment of the day was crossing the Chattahoochee River.  The rivers are swollen here, and many have overrun their banks, and flooded local roads and yards.

We outran the dark clouds and avoided a thunderstorm.   One more day of riding before our last rest day and our final four riding days!


We have enjoyed many great dinners across this country made with limited resources in the back of our travel trailer by 3 talented cooks.  Each one during their time with us has brought their own own style and taste.   After dinner, a few of us volumteer to help with the dishes.  It sounds crazy, but this time has become one of my favorite parts of the trip.  We laugh, we banter, we wash dishes!  Just another reminder that it is about the people that you spend time with, not the tasks or activities!

A few pictures from tonight!   Many thanks to Joyce (my twin Dish Bitch), Carolyn, Nancy, Twila, Mary-Slade, Sue, Ellen, Carol and Patty – for lots of fun.

  1. You certainly look like you are all having fun! I think Twila can fit in that pan she’s washing! what is Joyce doing? Diving in the bucket? Karen, I have never seen you so tan! It’s going to be a bitch getting rid of those tan lines on your hands. Savor these last days!

  2. Here is a son about washing dishes called “Dishes” by Rita Hosking (on iTunes). She is great and a former teacher. I have a ticket to see her on May 3 in Bedford, VA.
