I have been along the beach in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and New Jersey on various vacation trips, but this will be a new experience. It will be interesting to see how it will compare to the Pacific Coast Highway trip that I did February- November 2022.
From years of camping I found that the sinks usually did not have a stopper. I brought along one to use to plug the sink. Then I bought a kitchen sink from Sea and Summit. I could wash dishes, my face, clothes in it. Then the scrubba came out. I sound this a better for washing clothes plus it can serve as an extra dry bag or water bladder.
As soon as I get into camp I like to set up the tent and get cleaned up. Getting fresh clothes and the road dirt off makes such a difference. I have been known to wash the clothes while in the shower and this also takes care of the rinse. I am sure that you will find the best method for your tour. I like to get the wet clothes in the sun to dry. I have also been know to strap the wet clothes on the bike in the morning.
Southern Tier: Virtual Tour-West to East. Last Leg From Live Oak to Ichetucknee Springs, Gainesville, Palatka, St. Augustine
These springs fill the rivers in the area. I was wondering about all these rivers that I passed.
Gainesville is the home of the University of Florida. I love touring a college campus and looking at the architecture.
On this ride there were two long trail rides. The Gainesville-Hawthorne trail was about 15 miles. Later we went on the Patalka-Butler State Trail which ran 12 miles.
Doing the Virtual Trip is the best I can do. I miss the hard stuff: rain, heat, cold, hills, bugs, hunger, thirst and many aspects. This does allow me a chance to get some feel what some riders experienced while they did the trip. I must remember that I did ride the 3098 miles. Now I will start another virtual trip. The temperatures will soon warm up and the snow will stop. These changes will allow me to get outside.
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
