We bought train tickets from Jacksonville, FL to Raleigh, NC.

We’ll get to Raleigh May 8th and ride to Durham from there to hang out with our friends Hutch and Janelle. For example, Hutch is probably going to take us to the Lemur Center to see the LemursLive! tour. Due to the incredible speed of a train relative to a bicycle, we’re spending longer than expected in Durham, which is a source of mild anxiety when the goal is to get on the road, but hopefully those few days will be relaxing and fun for all of us.

Then, on May 11th, we ride our first day of our first tour by bicycle on our way to Swanville, Maine.
