2nd leg of traveling from St. Louis to Miami.
I made my 1st quick stop and oil change in the morning before I headed off. I made it to Valdosta, GA in time to stop by and see my university. I ate at 1 of the best BBQ places in the USA called Smokin’ Pig, stopped by a new brewery in town called GA Beer Co., and then headed off to Miami. Along the way I made a last chance effort to connect with a friend in Jupiter, and they happened to communicate and let me stop at their place. It gave me the chance to end the driving day a little sooner and let me stop with fading daylight and step into the Atlantic Ocean for the 1st time in about 4 years. It was definitely an enjoyable and peaceful moment since there were hardly any waves and anyone there at the beach itself. The company was great and I got some much needed rest that night. 8 hours of driving.
