Thursday January 12, 2017, 62 miles (100 km) – Total so far: 542 miles (872 km)

Stealth camp to Parkwood RV Park in Statesboro, Ga.
I ran out of food last night except for random snacks I had. The double Dave burger got me through the night but I was pretty hungry in the morning. I did have coffee though. It made the Cliff Bar go down a little easier.

Prospects for food looked dim but I noticed a grocery store listed on the map about 20 miles away. Not enough cell signal to post pics on the blog or attend to social media so I made an early start of it. Eight am. I laugh at that as I’ll be leaving much earlier when it gets hot. Riding early meant it was cold and somewhat foggy.

Most towns I went hrough were basically crossroads. I found a gas station that was not marked and heated up a sausage biscuit. Good thing as the grocery store ended up being a liquor store. Still a bit early for me. Today, I was scheduled to return to Ga. I was looking for the Savannah River and the big hill ahead called a bridge announced it's presence.
The Savannah River, Georgia, South Carolina border.

Soon after came my second state sign picture of the trip.

Georgia on my mind.

Soon after that, I filled my belly with meatloaf, green beans and corn at a gas station. These stations have fuel for the cars and fuel for Clara’s engine.

I had 62 miles to do today but the scenery made them go by fast. Had a snack on the steps of a beautiful church nestled under the live oaks.

Soon it was time to put on the music and motor out the last few miles. A Starbucks, double energy, Mocha drink made that push even easier. Now I'm in camp, comfortably full of low country, Cajun, boiled shrimp, sausage, potatoes and corn. I'll sleep well tonight.
