Hi, Kenneth Payton, who just turned 82, is in the final two weeks of his cross-country tour, from California to Florida, and is now in your area. He believe it's his "last hurrah" in terms of big bike tours, before returning home to take care of his wife, who has Alzheimer's disease.
He's in Mississippi now, on his way to St. Augustine, Fl.
Just thought I'd mention it in any case anybody wants to meet up with him on his way to completing his impressive journey.
Here's his journal at www.crazyguyonabike.com, along with contact info...
I'm sure he'd appreciate someone buying him a beer when he reaches the coast...a couple of other BFers have met up with him on his way across the country...
