Hawthorne, Florida

Started journal 2 days late. Hence last night and this a.m. conditions on previous page.

Very difficult riding today. Poor or no shoulder. Extremely heavy truck traffic. More trucks than cars. Headwind most of day.

Stayed in worst campground in the history of the world. $18 for a bit of grass between a major highway and another road. Adjacent to the other road was a heavily used railroad. Trains blew whistles all the way through town. A trio of dogs barked continually day and night 30 ft. from where we pitched the tents. The facilities were filthy. All for only $18. Also the proprietor was a big fat pig. Oh, and did I say rude?
