Many turtles were saved today. If I find them in the road, I move them. I won't stop the middle of a hill for a photo op, but will for a turtle. I asked Bill why they seem to like stopping in the middle of a hill, where it is so difficult to stop and rescue them. He said " turtles get tired on hills, too".
Many dogs today, but they really lacked the willpower to actually some biting. Steve sent me a text message warning me of a particularly bad one, however, and told me it took a bite out of his pannier. Still don't know if he was kidding.
Between Janelle, Bill and myself, we have different versions of the map. We decided to follow one set of directions, only to find there were no services on that route. Kind people filled our constantly emptied water bottles. It probably reached 95 degrees today.
The pat answer to any mileage question is now : 10 miles and all downhill.
We stopped for a stream break in late afternoon, which rejuvenated us for a while.
At 8:45 we reached Berea, KY. Tomorrow we scheduled a break day, which is good because the group is scattered. I know where Mike and Sara are, but not Ted.
