Walking to Central America.
Just met some people from Rhode Island passing through on their way to Gainesville where they will leave the bikes and head for Mexico where they plan to walk to Central America. Going to ride down to the Duval county line with them. More on this later.
Britt, Donny and Robby left Providence, Rhode Island on September 1st, 2007 and landed here in Jacksonville 25 days later. I got them hooked up with Kosta at Kosta's Pizza Italian in Five Points and they loaded up on pasta and garlic bread.
I paced them down to Timmaquana Road on US17 going into Orange Park and left them headed for Green Cove Springs where Britt's Uncle has a boat. Sounds like a nice way to spend a couple of days partying on the St. Johns River.
They're headed for Gainesville from there to put the bikes in storage then they are headed for Texas to walk Mexico to Central America.
Britt says she will send me a link when she gets around to putting the story up on myspace. I will recommend this forum to her also.
