Day 71- Greenville to Leland to Cleveland up Highway 61 Mississippi Blues trail

Goodbye Mississippi! We ran through this fine state in only four days. See you later today, Memphis!

We had a late night rocking out with musician Preston Shannon and the mayor of Clarksdale (part owner of Ground Zero) in Clarksdale. We got Pat’s photo with both of them and the mayor promised to make a donation to The 100 Mile Club.

The crew logistics for us have shifted significantly now that our Juppy is missing. For one, it’s easy to throw Pat into the RV overnight if we don’t have lodging lined up. We are already a day ahead of schedule with Pat’s 35-40 mile days and I’ve made a new schedule through Tennessee.

I’m behind on my videos because we’re waiting to retrieve some footage from Jup’s GoPro. Sad to see that GoPro go and we miss Jup as well. If anyone has a GoPro they’re not using and can lend us for a couple more months, I’d love to use it to continue to document this journey.

Pat hit a rough patch yesterday when he ran into a hailstorm (no hail where we were at the aid station). His phone was charging in the RV so we had no idea until he got to us. He was cold, but not badly damaged.

Our brother Jup is getting along well! Be sure to check out his blog below if you haven’t already.

At the moment, Pat is needed lodging in:

1-Apr Linden, TN
2-Apr Wrigley, TN
3-Apr Nashville, TN
4-Apr Nashville, TN
8-Apr Wartburg, TN
9-Apr Knoxville, TN
10-Apr Knoxville, TN
11-Apr Morristown, TN
12-Apr Surgoinsville, TN
13-Apr Bristol, TN

Can you join us for a few miles?

Well I got it all packed up and ready to go by 7.30am and off I went back into the buggy pushing world. I was sure it would take it out of me today after not pushing for ages and being looked after so well by Shacky and Vanessa. The sun was out and I was happy to be back out there moving forward.

I was heading towards Cleveland today which I wasn’t sure if I would make it and came up just a few miles short after getting 32 miles in for the day. I spent so much time chilling and enjoying the Museum in Leland.

As I came into Leland I noticed a girl getting out of a car in front of me and smiling and I thought straight away that it might have been someone Pat had chatted too. Not to be it was Tawana Andrew and…
