We have arrived safely at Key West, Florida at 4:56pm local time.
Thank you for your prayers.
More photos to come shortly.
Dear Jesus, thank you for Grampa’s strong muscles. Please give his muscles new strength and energy every day of his ride. -E
After a delay and then re-routing, we are back on the road at 7:15.
6:00 am (local time): We are presently sitting at an intersection on Hwy 997. The road ahead is closed due to a major accident and we are waiting for permission to proceed. No idea on timing.
In an effort to get closer to Key West, Arvid pushed very hard today, covering 372 km. With having to wait out the thunderstorm we went an hour longer, finishing the day at 11 pm.
Our ‘night nap’ is done and we are on the road at 4:50am.
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, (weather conditions) we hope and plan to make it to Key West before nightfall TODAY!!!
Where is the sun in the Sunshine State?Irrigation ditches alongside Hwy 27.
Sugar cane fields as far as the eye can see.
And we are back on the road again. Unfortunately, in that hour the wind changed and is now a strong headwind.
Arvid is in the RV as we sit out another thunderstorm.⚡️🌧⛈
…majority wins again! Still heading south!
Dear Jesus, help Grampa not to feel scared on his bike. Help Grampa to remember all the Grandkids. Help Grampa to make lots of money for the children. Amen. -JT
