Okeechobee Florida to Bowling Green fl

Today I will be riding along Us 98.  There are lots of red necks with pick ups around here that like to smoke cyclists a lot with their exhaust !  Either that or they lay on the horn and tell you to get off the road !
Will be riding 73 miles today. I am in ranching country where some of them go back to the early 1900s. A lot of these ranches have been held in the same family for generations . This one fact speaks of the strong family traditions that are in this area which I think is pretty cool
