No mileage today. I spent the day sleeping, trying to recover from this cold. I felt better in the afternoon and went out for a walk. I asked a woman for directions to the downtown area or any other places to see. Her response? “Honey, there isn’t anything in this town.” Additional incentive for me to get better and get going. I hope to make it to Vancleave or Perkinston tomorrow. I suspect WiFi access will be lacking in the days ahead.
One of the most striking things over the last week has been the CPM (churches per mile). It’s astounding. In one two mile stretch of Florida, I counted 7 churches. And, in a town I rode through with less than 900 citizens, a sign identified 11 churches. Each has it’s own approach to attracting patrons.
