Day 79- sweet day, new friends, Made it to Linden

It was a cool night last night and my hide away camp spot was great , didnt get told to leave so I was happy. I headed off at 7am and had the goal of Linden town. I was aiming for here as as I could see the hotel there was the only one for miles. I wanted a shower.

Day 22 Day 23 Day 24 Day 25

A great sunrise and not a lot of traffic on the roads for a start but got busy later, The road was pretty narrow and a lot of cars were stopping as my buggy was sticking out a lot. sorry. I pasted through a few small towns and some nice countryside on the 34 miles I did today. One thing i did notice was everyone was out cutting their lawns, I mean every house had some riding a mower.

Day 233 Day 234 Day 28 Day 27 Day 29 Day 210

There was a lot of water and rivers on route today which was nice and I went over the mighty Tennessee river mid run. Pretty big too , I need to see where and too it runs too.

Day 215 Day 216 Day 217 Day 218 Day 213 Day 214

I meet a lot of people today which was great. First I meet Tailor who was with his mate and then he drove to find me and tell me he had a friend who might be able to help with media in Nashville. He even rang me later to check I was good. Bloody awesome and thanks so much for your support bro. Then I meet this nice couple at the hotel Im staying at. They gave me heaps of info on different places to see on the days ahead. Thankyou so much x.

Day 236 Day 238

I arrived into Linden in good time and found the Commodore Hotel right in the middle of town, Perfect. I walked in to a smile and checked in. The building had been left unused for years and the new owners Kathy and Michael who are from out of town came and reformed it back to it’s now awesomeness. The place has a great feeling and lots of history. Kathy made me snacks and dinner which was super yummy. Can’t thank you enough for helping me out and making me feel so welcome. I’m taking the day off here tomorrow. the last few days off have been filled with fun tourist things and I’m kinda tired so thought here would be a good place to do nothing.  Got a call from my mum today too which was awesome. great to catch up ma. x

Day 220 Day 239 Day 230 Day 231 Day 225 Day 221

I found this cool little quote tonight. I like it and are busy trying to put it into effect. Had a great day and meet lots of people so Happy.

One thought on “Day 79- sweet day, new friends, Made it to Linden

  1. Reblogged this on Vanessa Runs and commented:
    Pat knocked out another 40+ miles on Friday on the route I plotted which put him right in the middle of a tornado warming. Oops.

    We ended up Columbia just before the storm hit and hid out in the RV (which you’re not supposed to do in a tornado). But it’s not like I was going to leave my kitty behind…

    Anyhoo! We survived to run again. Yesterday Pat ran to his friend Marisa’s town in Murfreesboro and we called it an early day at 50K to spend some time with her and her family. Many thanks to Marisa for hosting us!

    After a leisurely morning it’s back on the road for another 20 or so miles to wrap up the day. Next week it’s off to the post office to mail off some goodies to everyone who has donated to The 100 Mile Club! Don’t forget:

    For the month of April, for every $20 donation to The 100 Mile Club we will be mailing you a postcard from the Team with at least one grammatical or spelling error guarantead.

    For every $50 donation we will mail you an autographed copy of The Summit Seeker plus a trinket that Pat Sweeney has found on the side of the road that is not fecal.
    Donate online at:

    Remember to message us your mailing address if you donate!

    I’m also excited today because the hard copy proof of my book arrived in the mail. We are still 85 miles from our mail drop, but I may be able to figure something out with Mikki, our gracious host, to pick it up early. Once I approve this proof I can start selling paper copies of my book. Woohoo! Thanks to everyone how has bought the Kindle version, shared it, and supported the project. Remember to leave an Amazon review!
