I forgot to mention earlier that Maxine and Jacque signed up for Charity Miles which is a free phone app that is sponsored by different businesses each day ( so far we've had Humana, J&J, and Chobani). It accurately tracks mileage and donates 25 cents per mile to a charity you select each time from a list. Maxine is supporting Feeding America, and Jacque chooses a different one each day. So we are doing some good, too. And we may donate all the money we find along the way. So far I think we have 1 quarter, 3 dimes and 7 pennies. This is how we entertain ourselves on the road.

DAY 7 - 20 miles
A really nice and warm day. Maybe we should be careful what we wish for. Some interesting sights were crossing the Suwanee River (photo of Pat), a huge chicken processing plant and many trucks full of chickens on the way to slaughter (they stunk as the trucks drove by us and feathers were flying around us), a peanut farm, more tree farms, more churches, logging trucks, a cemetery, a dead cardinal, a dead chicken, more roadkill, and a few really nice houses. We had a snack sitting on the curb of a gas station and a nice conversation with an 86 year old lady missing a few front teeth who wished she could have joined our group. Jacque walked 11.6 miles- her longest day.
