27jan Monday.
Near St. Augustine, FL

So it took a spell to push out of there in the morning. My stuff was wet.

I left around 1003. I rode into St. Augustine. I was not too impressed, so I just parked at the Best Western and dried my gear in the hot sun. After eating a bit (Barnacle sea food place). I pushed south around 12:55. I needed a battle buddy to help me with the Big bore bike tarp! The pool guy at the hotel volunteered to help me.

I got to Daytona Beach around 1427. It took the 2nd time to get a great deal on a $35 night hotel on Atlantic AVe. SkyWall I believe was the location. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Rev...h_Florida.html
they were saying $40, because it was a King size, but I got $5 off.
I recommend this place. Hot water, good Wi-Fi, fridge, microwave.

I checked in via the Nexus 7, and then went to get some chow. I'm doing good on dropping weight on the tour. I'm not eating much.
I went to Molly Hathcet's. http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/124/1654...-Daytona-Beach

For less than $9.00 you can get a massive (I'm talking right out of the Candy Yams S10 play book monumental), sub. It is like three meals in one!

The strip was ok. Not my kind of place.

I needed to catch up on sleep (had been up mostly since 0200) so I was done by 17:20.



I take my tank bag off the DR night sets in. I also remove important gear from the soft bags.


63.3 miles
$56

Maybe about a mile off-road to get out of my first over night camp of the tour.
