Last day before takeoff

Arrived in Charleston, SC Tuesday night from San Diego via Chicago. Jim Wallace’s daughter Ann picked me up and I spent two nights as Jim’s guest. Jim and his family made my stay very enjoyable. I spent a good part of Wednesday afternoon being interviewed by various media representatives. Today Jim, see picture below, gave me a ride to Beaufort, SC where I had a very nice dinner with Kathy Wise of Semper Fi Fund and her friends.

Now ready for the take off tomorrow after a media event in Waterfront Park from 9 to 10 am which Kathy and her friends are coordinating after which I will ride about six miles to the front gate of MCRD Parris Island for my official start of the 100 day trip.
