The 3rd was rainy in the morning. It was going to be a 25 mile day and I was hoping for nothing too crazy as far as weather goes. I was lucky enough to make it to the Lime Springs gas station right before a big storm hit. I stayed there for 1 1/2 hours, and the lady that ran the place bought me lunch! So I had a pizza and a soda. When the storm finally ended I still had 14 miles to go. So I took some back roads that were nice and quite through Amish country and got to Marian's house in Cresco at 6 PM. She took me to a local diner for dinner, and we came home and talked about world travels for a bit before writing this, and going to bed! So tired, need to catch up on some sleep.
