TRIP 2003

Update #39 - September 30th
Americus, Georgia - 8367 miles (13,387 KM)



The past nine days have pretty well been a rest period for me. I really needed it because of all the heavy miles that I've done without really taking rest days along the way as often as I should. Also, my nose had to heal some. The nose was really sun burnt and it was peeling bad. Ten days ago, I also caught a stone in the nose. It bled some.

I pretty well stayed inside for most of the time to get out of the sun for a few days. I did go outside a few times to visit with some friends and to get a much needed haircut. My last haircut was back in late June in Billings, Montana. My hair was pretty long and I had about two inches cut off.

Sunday, I went to the 9:00 a.m. service at the United Methodist Church in downtown Americus. I used to worship there while I was a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity. I had met the assistant pastor several years ago and I contacted him when I got back into town. He asked me if I could share with the congregation Sunday morning during the contemporary service. I was given about eight minutes to talk. It was neat that the assistant pastor used some of my contents in his sermon. Afterwards, I was given sixty-five dollars in "Green-Handshakes".

I also spent some long hours on the website. I reformatted everything with a new FONT and TYPE SIZE. Also, I changed the META TAGS. This job took almost 30 hours since the site has almost 1,000 pages. I think that the website looks much cleaner now and more professional looking.

Tomorrow, I will getting back on the road. It's time. In the morning, I'll be backtracking to Cordele. From there, I will be heading through Tifton to Valdosta. After Valdosta, I'll be either heading Southeast through Waycross to Brunswich and then down to Jacksonsonville, Florida or heading straight south to Lake Charles, Florida and then going east to Jacksonville.

After Jacksonville, I will be riding along FL A1A through St. Augustine and Daytona Beach. From Daytona, I will be possibly be riding on to Orlando so that I can visit the new headquarters of the Wycliffe Bible Translators. I understand that there is a volunteer program. If that doesn't work out, I'll be riding to the Tampa area to check out the ministry "Food For the Poor", which primarily helps people in the Carabbean.

I'll try to post an update as often as I can if there are any changes in my plans.
