Jake has been battling poor internet connections so he phoned his brother Luke with an update from Cape Romain S.C. about 30 miles N. of Charleston. Jake spent yesterday visiting Ft. Sumter, site where the first battle of the Civil War took place in 1861, (Stay in school kids!) and friends in Charleston. He put in 30 miles today to make it to Cape Romain. Jake's spirits were up as Charleston was the point he has been targeting as the half way point since he began planning this trip. I guess you could say he is now back on his way home! He is putting together details of the past few days and hopes to have a strong enough connection to have new blogs posted soon. Stay tuned!
