South Carolina

It has be in the high 90's every day, on Thursday it hit 100F. I did cycle for a hour on Friday evening, the temp was down to the low 80's. It is near time to start packing for the return trip. The fore cast for the New England states is for cooler temp on Tuesday and Wednesday, which would make for better travelling.
