I left at 9:20 am. It seems to be more humid in the morning, drying out during the day. Not an especially eventful day.
Okay, you know how you can go to the bathroom and do number 1 or number 2? I had the feeling of looming 1.5, and it was 20 miles to the nearest store. I considered just pulling over and going, but there would be no privacy, and I would be doing it in someone’s yard. I passed by a farm that looked vacant and for sale, but there was a swamp-like area on it. As I passed, something big splashed into the water. Didn’t know what it was, and didn’t want to find out, either. My strategy was to hold it, and not drink any more water. I would rinse my mouth with water from the bottle, and spit it out. In that way, I dehydrated, and the pressure passed.
Because of all the tourists, the thought came to me that the motels in High Springs might be full, or expensive.
I’m only checked in for one night. Tomorrow, I will visit church, then go 18 miles into Gainesville, seeking out the hostel there. Goal for Monday is Palatka, then St. Augustine the next day.
