We rode up the road. The bugs were out in full force this evening. Once I had to stop to clean the lenses of my goggles. We rode along the road for quite a while in the dark. We rode through Gwangju on Friday night and stopped just on the North side of town to grab some necessities for dinner. Sung Hyeon had a burner and some tuna, but he needed extra rameen. I picked up a kimbap and some chips for us. We left from there and began to look for a place to sleep. We both had the same idea, "Anywhere that has an open space will do." I made the first suggestion. It was a park. I saw the brown sign (brown signs mean touristy type thing) and the word park. we found the joint a bit further down off of the main road. When we got there the lady tried to make up pay to park, Sung Hyeon asked her about camping and it wasn't gonna happen there. He suggested to eat there. Then I counter-suggested we continues to ride and eat and camp at the same place. We saw another sign for a park and tried to find this one next. We found no park. Rather, I saw the largest cemetary I have seen thus far in Korea. We quickly agreed we would not camp here.
We ended up in some small town somewhere between Gwangju and Jeonju. We saw a small school or church, not real sure
