Day 2. New Egypt to Egg Harbor City.

This is what I looked at the majority of the day.

After a rough first day out I had a really positive second day. Luckily, there was a bike shop not too far from where I'd spent the the night. So before heading out I stopped to replenish some of the tubes I had used up. Thats where I met two people who helped me more than they will ever know. Besides tubes, and directions, they were so nice to me and gave me such a positive outlook on things which, in turn,  helped me through what turned out to be a long, hot day through the pine barrens and cranberry bogs of deep south Jersey.

Also, I can't forget to mention Tommy @ Mack's Canoe Shop who helped me out with free water, the much needed use of his restroom, and a look at his maps. This place is nestled deep within state forests and endless miles of cranberry bogs.

Some sights from the rest of the day:
