He's starting out from Georgia, remember one day's ride is about 40 miles, maybe 50 if the going is good and very few breaks are taken. He won't be reaching any deserts for many weeks. Rolling on the floor laughing

Literary license Tom. I could "Feel the Heat", Lilli. Besides, haven't you ever had a 'Mint Julep"? Maybe old "Sam" had one to many and was experiencing 'Awakening Dreams". Whistling Rolling on the floor laughing
