Day 29 – Perry to Metter

Our second to last day takes us from Perry to Metter, a distance of 117 miles. We rolled out at 7am and scenery-wise picked up where we left off yesterday with yet more forests.

The day did however start of dry, but at 6.30am it was 75f. All that we would expect for the rest of the day would be for it to get hotter and more humid.

Day 29 - Dry for now!

The humidity continued to build during the morning and by lunchtime it was really hot and sticky. The sky was now turning black. Sure enough it couldn’t last and just before we came into the last SAG stop of the day the heavens opened spectacularly. Fortunately for me I was able to take shelter under a flyover and I waited there for 20 minutes until it eased of a little before venturing the last 300 yards to the SAG wagon.

The rain eased up a lot but the temperature never dropped below the mid 80’s. The rest of the day was a steady ride into Metter.

Only one more day to go!
