26 Feb 2007: day 17
Start Destination Daily Miles / Total
Cove City US 258 & Bill Stroud rd 20.6 today / 213.4 total

On this fine day I broke 20 miles just before sunset. The fourth house I tried won me a spot on his lawn for my tent. I finished setting up without any extra daylight. This here is a pleasant little community and the retired guy seems nice. He gave me an orange when he filled my water bottles. Even his yapping dog was more cute than annoying.

The mileage is an experiment. I don't think my feet are quite ready to pound out day after day of 20s yet, but I wanted to see how one day would go. I left the food mart at 8:44 after chatting with my new friends a little. (Are you two reading along?) I took a few breaks and hiked to a little after 18:00. It was more easy roadwalking along little used secondary roads. The MST basically follows NC bike route #7 around here. It's all rural.

p.s. There were fewer smashed oppossums on the road today.
