Day 22
Total distance to date-Portland Maine to Savannah Georgia-1,340
Savannah-rest day
Today was our final rest day and we spent most of the time touring Savannah. Many sites to visit and so little time to do so. Pictures tell the story.

I always use rest days to thank those who have contributed to the Central Illinois Alzheimers Assn. Your contributions are appreciated and there is still time to contribute before my ride ends.

Because of the significance of Savannah to the history of the United States, todays shoutout goes to the Social Science department at East Peoria High School: Marty Green, Kevin Collins, Jenni Lamb, Zach Fleming and the rest of the department who arrived after I retired.
