Tracking Sadie

I crossed into Alabama today. I missed the state line, probably because I was being chased by yard dogs. They sure are a thing in the south, and I have developed a mean sprint. I put in 60 miles today en route to Scottsboro, including a detour to a GPS point that Sadie dropped back on September 18th. I managed to get within a few hundred yards of the actual spot (click here for video) which she passed about 10am. Perhaps a roost site, perhaps not. She is still sending out signals, currently from Panama.

I will be putting in another 100 mile day tomorrow to get to Birmingham. My fitness is now really good, and I feel reasonably confident that I will make the MX border by mid-November, which was the schedule I set out way back before I left NH. Hopefully, one or other of Sadie and/or Rosalie hangs out until I get there.

      Thanks Laurie. More stuff happening than I have time to post, but I will get there. In Columbus MS now, about to join the Natchez Trace. I note that the hawks are approaching the point of no return for me. Fingers crossed, but c’est la vie. Onward.

      Thanks Azim. You project some pretty good energy into the world yourself. It was great to meet you. Good luck at Mercedes (I passed it on the road as you noted!).
