He was going to give up on the idea at 11pm and told me at 10.52pm that I had eight minutes, then would be off the hook. Then Tom called. He could skate with us and his wife would pick us up at Anniston. Tom and his family came up to Greensboro last Fall so that he could skate the Carolina Century - pretty much the whole way with Skatey-Mark. <br /> <br /> </p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="33.841363">33° 50' 28.9068" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-84.515861">84° 30' 57.0996" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=33.841363+-84.515861+%28%2C+%2C+%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!

However, the Chief Ladiga (&quot;lah-DYE-gah&quot;) Trail in Alabama has some version of a water faucet at least every ten miles, and if you're squeamish about drinking strange water, dumping it onto your head works perfectly well. </p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Chief Ladiga Eubanks Welcome Center</span> <div class="street-address"> 202 Dailey Street </div> <span class="locality">Piedmont</span>, <span class="region">Alabama</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="33.922826">33° 55' 22.1736" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-85.607585">85° 36' 27.306" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=33.922826+-85.607585+%28202+Dailey+Street%2C+Piedmont%2C+AL%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=202+Dailey+Street&amp;csz=Piedmont%2C+AL&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!

Lots to tell but who knows if I'll find the time. Meanwhile here are 410 photos that are geolocated on a Google Earth KMZ file. </p> <p> We got started around midday when it was getting hot indeed. We drove to Piedmont, AL, where there's a Welcome Center. We planned to skate the 40 miles down and back to the Anniston, AL end, eat some sandwiches and have cool drinks at the car, then do the 27 miles or so out and back to the trailhead of the Silver Comet at the state line with GA. </p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Eubanks Welcome Center Chief Ladiga Trail</span> <div class="street-address"> 202 Dailey Street </div> <span class="locality">Piedmont</span>, <span class="region">Alabama</span> <span class="postal-code">36272</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="33.922826">33° 55' 22.1736" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-85.607585">85° 36' 27.306" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=33.922826+-85.607585+%28202+Dailey+Street%2C+Piedmont%2C+AL%2C+36272%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=202+Dailey+Street&amp;csz=Piedmont%2C+AL&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
