We spent the morning in the campground. Dave made phone calls while I explored. From there we drove over to Ocean Springs Beach on Biloxi Bay. I walked the beach, took pictures. and savored the shore. It’s a nice town beach that was badly damaged by Hurricane Katrina and restored.
Unlike our usual routine, we did not drive back to the bike route. Instead we started driving north to Ohio. The reason why is that Dave got sabotaged by a sand fly bite in Costa Rica. It gifted him a parasite and resulted in a leg wound that will not heal. After seeing three doctors, the CDC confirmed that it is Leishmaniasis. The best course of action is to end Stage 1 of the ride and go home to seek treatment.
The plan is to return to where we stopped and resume Stage 2 of The Ride to Saint Augustine, Florida. This will happen when conditions and opportunity make it possible. Thanks to everyone who has been following our blogs and to those who have supported the ALS research cause. We will keep you posted when the trip resumes.
Unicycle Across the USA has been an amazing 2300 mile, life in the slow lane journey. I’ll miss our little road trip world. Talk about being in the Present!
