Day 540 – USA (FLORIDA): Pensacola


No skating today, but did get the opportunity to speak to 160 middle school kids at Ferry Pass Middle School in Pensacola.

Channel 3 News Clip

I showed my Powerpoint Presentation of my trip so far. It was well received, and I got some great questions at the end. By far my answer to the ‘do you bathe?’ question got the biggest reaction.

“Well, the longest I went without having a shower was 21 days…” I replied, explaining that in some countries (such as Tajikistan, where those 21 days happened), just turning on a tap and having running water sometimes isn’t an option.

Afterwards, I spent most of the day updating the website, which was at least five days out of date.
