Postcards
Wrote some postcards to friends.

Gettin’ Tipsy at World of Beer

Last night was awesome. I wound up going out to World of Beer with Kathleen. I had a blueberry pale, cooper pale ale and red bull vodka. I had to go with my signature drink haha. It was a great time. I ended up sleeping in until 10 AM and the Smith family gave me a healthy, delicious breakfast, which consisted of blueberries, yogurt and granola. I planned out my route with George and said goodbye to everyone. We took a picture and parted ways. They took me in off the streets and treated me like family and for that I appreciate it. I just want to say thanks to both George and Genie (forgive me if I spelled your name wrong) and their beautiful daughters.  I had a blast and appreciated the kindness and hospitality.

I left around 11 AM and headed towards route 28 where I passed a Bacons BBQ. I ate one of the best pulled pork sandwiches I have ever had for just 9 bucks.

I also stopped at Walgreens to pick up some postcards.

I met a few new people along the way who let me eat in their lawn and we exchanged brief stories.  If there is one thing I have learned so far you just have to reach out to people and they can be very nice and understanding. After 65 miles of biking I finally arrived in Cedar Mountain Campground, but it seemed rather shady. I asked a nice family on camp road for directions and I ended up taking shelter in their lawn since the campground was full of crooks and shady people.

This family gave me some water and food. Another thanks goes out to Wendy, Dustin, Marvin, and Robbie. Thanks guys. Tomorrow I will be in Charlottesville where I will start on the TransAmerica Trail.

Brian Cray is not a cyclist. He’s not a hitchhiker. He’s not a train hopper or an adrenaline junkie. He’s just an ordinary man with gypsy blood in his veins, who can’t seem to settle down. Nothing defines him. He goes wherever this world takes him on this journey we call life, roaming the world, at will, by any means. He aspires for a life of indefinite travel, a tiny home in the woods for him and his wife, and any work that keeps him wanderin’. Brian Cray is a travel writer at heart, sharing his stories with the world one keystroke at a time.
