It Is Official!!!

Yay me!!!

I had really been thinking of taking this time off and run the entire Blue Ridge Parkway.  The weather wasn't looking too good, with rain predicted Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  I wasn't willing to put up with that.  So I have completely my 5 corners trip for Georgia!

I'm currently sitting in an hotel room in Bainbridge, Georgia.  Yeah, not that exciting.  But my sense of accomplishment is great! 

View 4 corners in a larger map.  Hint: Zoom out by one please.

You can take a look at the Track Me map and verify that I have ridden the west border of Georgia today.  (The map won't be active for long with a seven day memory.  I will post up a better map soon.)

Thanks, all, for the encouraging words to get me out and keep me on the road!  It's been a fun trip.  :)

  1. Looking forward to hearing about your adventure in more detail. Biking is good for cleansing the soul and the mind.

  2. "Yeah, not that exciting. But my sense of accomplishment is great!" Lori, I think I know that feeling. And, if I do. It certainly is exciting in its own very special way.

    You did it! Yay!

  3. Well done Lori! Now you must come to England to see Stoke on trent.

    I need to get out on the road too and I'm heading for the hills tomorrow!

    Excuse the dumb question, but how do you post a google map into your blog?


  4. Dear Steel Cupcake:

    What a neat run! Doing all four coners of Georgia! I think that ride would be hard to beat for scenery, some challenges, great food, and of course, the ultimate season opener. I admire your inventiveness and staying power.

  5. I'm sorry that I don't have the time to comment on everyone's kind words and great wishes, but I really feel obliged to tell Nikos about Google maps.

    Nikos: once you get your map with your desired points or routes, look at the upper right corner and notice the "Print, Send, Link" options. Click Link, then copy the HTML code field. Take that into your blogger and paste into the "Edit HTML" tab of your in-progress post. Easy as pie!

    Thanks - I will try it with my next thrilling installment.

    I love pie!
