Woke up in the graveyard shortly before sunrise. Ate a box of Nilla wafers as I packed up.
Another full day of road walking. Nothing exciting to report. More tiny, out in the middle of nowhere backwoods churches, loads of trailers and hunting camps, tons of posted signs, and innumerable loose dogs. Hope the FTA is able to get the past fifty miles off the roads - while not particularly dangerous because of traffic, it's pretty unsightly.
Stopped for lunch at a little church made of cinderblocks. Filled up my water and had a chat with the wife as I munched on rehydrated minute rice.
Ended up stopping early tonight, before the sun even went down. Not sure if it's because I haven't been using my my trekking poles on the roads, or that roads increase the impact on my joints, but I developed a pretty severe pain in one of my knees and some unusual aches in other places.
I'll do my best to take it easy the next day or two, see how it goes.
St. Marks in two days. Definitely in need of a proper resupply.
