Sorry if I scared anyone yesterday. The truck was actually 10 feet away. ( wink wink ) Today was another beautiful day in Iowa. The motorist continue to give me lots of room, thanks Iowa drivers! The wind was tough today. I think it was a 20-30 mph constant headwind. I have been riding 18-23 mph, today it was 10-12 mph on the down hills. I think I laughed too soon at the "hills" because today they got me at the end of my ride. I am tired and sore, I take it back hills!
Last night I went to dinner at the Sac County Cattle Company restaurant. I felt like treating myself so I ordered a salad, baked potato, steak and a Coors Light. The steak was perfect and so was everything else. I had a wonderful waitress and we had a chance to talk a few minutes. She asked about what I was doing and I told her all about Caleb and the bigride. When it was time to pay she told me the dinner was on the house. I was shocked, I told her I should have ordered a burger. She laughed and I was kinda at a loss for words? Thank you to everyone at the Sac County Cattle Company for your kindness and for a wonderful meal.
Today when I got to Coon Rapids I stopped at the UMC here. No one was around so I made a few phone calls and was put in touch with Pastor Lynn. He came to the church and the both of us sat on the lawn in the shade and had an incredible conversation. We both shared some personal stories and shared our thoughts with each other. It was another powerful interaction for me personally. Thank you Pastor Lynn for sharing a part of yourself with me!! I also want to thank your church family for letting me stay in the church tonight! Thanks.
I talked to my mom yesterday, that always cheers me up! Hi Mom.
HHmmm? Well, I think that's about it? On to Stuart, IA in the morning!!! C ya TK
