All of you who continue to pray for our safety and well-being keep up the good work. Once again what we needed happened.
We started out our morning with our new friend Shelah Sandefer bringing us goodies for the ride; hard boiled eggs, home made peanutbutter cookies, peanutbutter, jelly, and wholesome bread. What a treat! It served for breakfast and our mid-morning coffee break.
The roads today were fun with two killer hills, but the fun out weighed the bad. We wheeled into Bucksnort, Tenn. in mid-morning. At the quick stop we were told that finding lodging any where in the area would be difficult. It turns out that there are 25,000 people here for a national motocross competition. We had concidered staying at the Lorretta Lynn Ranch, but that is the headquarters for the competition. So we called the only motel for miles. At first he had no rooms, but it seems that he has a soft spot for bicyclists--all of a sudden he had a room. Yea! We only rode a short distance today, but other lodging was too far for us. Today was the first day that we really felt the heat. We were in our air-conditioned motel, very pricey room, by 2:00.
Heading out early tomorrow and looking forward to The Land Between the Lakes. We should be camping for the next 5 or 6 nights.
