Day 2 &3 Lumpkin,GA..Savannah, GA

So what should have taken me about 600mi..took me 700..and those extra 100 are from riding back and forth on the road that supposedly led to the state park we were camping was gps kept dropping me in the middle of the road with sign of this fuckin place..usually im a fairly patient person when im on my motorbike..but this fiasco was pushing on my very last nerve..

....but all this on my end didnt compare to kelly's journey from the other end of the country..before he could make it 3hrs fom his house in the cape..his chain broke off taking his shoe lace with and nearly his leg..while he was waiting for kevo to arrive with a master link he also noticed that his fender mounts were broke leaving a nice new tread design in his tyre..Bound and determined to meet up with me he luckily found a guy in the vicinity @ a custom bike shop to weld the fender mounts..the weld wasnt the prettiest..but it was definitely what i would call industrial strength...
oh yeah and he also realized he lost his tag..but in the end we arrived almost @ the same time both exhausted..

Florence State Park

Kelly's replacement tag..and he didnt spell florida wrong on purpose..he's just what you call special..short bus specialbefore we made it 10mi away from the campground..we stopped to check out some manmade canyons..but also realized the piston seal in his brake caliper was shot and it was leaking we bought some brake fluid and refilled when needed..leaving kelly to use downshifting as his best way to stop..scary..yes..but its a chopper..and thats how it goes
Providence Canyon State Park...Georgia's "Little Grand Canyon." the massive gullies (the deepest being 150 feet) were caused by erosion due to poor farming practices in the 1800s

Bear Sighting..or maybe a sasquatch..

we were headed to Tybee Island off the coast of GA..but it got to late to reach the campground for the night and ended up holed up in a hotel a little east of savannah..the bed did feel nice i will morning we headed into Savannah and went out to Tybee Island and on to St. Augustine,FL for the night..

Tomorrow..Cocoa Beach..hellz yeah
