Flat Tires Day 38

4/22/2015

Rode 75 miles

Rode approx. 6:38 hrs

I woke to a loud, deep, almost rattling noise followed by a huge splash. I immediately hoped the Ajax that I poured around my tent last night from a Ziploc bag to keep ants at bay, procured from a gentlemen’s stash that I talked to when I arrived, also works on alligators!

After cautiously unzipping my tent to peer out at the lake, steam rising from it giving it an even eerier feel, I see three gators making the smallest of ripples as they patrol on an otherwise still lake.

I eat a breakfast of Kind bars given to me along with the Ajax the night before, as I watch the ancient reptiles during my breakfast.

After breakfast I get back on the road; eventually catching up to Stephen.
