Day 19- A Wonderful Day

Day 19- A Wonderful Day

 

Howdy!
Well here I am in Virginia! Yesterday was a fabulous day. We had a great night's sleep and within a couple miles we made it to our sixth state. We saw a Flying J truck stop and thought it would be worth it to see I'd they had showers. They sure did, but we decided it just wasn't worth ten dollars each when we were just going to get sweaty again right after. As we were leaving we met a kind gentleman who admired what we were doing and reminisced on his childhood when a lady stayed with his family while she was walking across America. As we were leaving, Chuck hinted at contacting the local news, but we left it up to his discretion I'd he wanted to call them.

Well, a few more miles down the road we saw a nice looking, small truck stop and diner. We thought they may have showers, but they were only a dollar cheaper. We decided to eat and talked to a nice couple seated near us who ended up sneaking and paying for our meal before they left; we didn't even get a chance to thank them. Oh, I forgot to mention that I had been tell Levi I was really itchig to watch some I Love Lucy, and right after we sat down I heard the intro! It really put me in a good mood. At the end of our meal I went to the restroom, and when I came out Levi was chatting with a couple, sure enough Chuck had went I'm person to the news station and asked if they wanted to cover us. The interview was a lot more casual than the last one.

It turned two, and it was time for a powerade break, so we stopped in a gas station. There loved us there! The guy kept telling all the customers what we were doing and they all came over to the table to chat with us. One lady told us a pretty god storm was headed our way. We figured we would keep going since it was still early. We wanted the town of Winchester and realized it was pretty long in the direction we were going, and with the storm coming it might be a good day to take a cheap hotel and get some showers in. We thought would try our luck at the hotels nearby, but they looked out of our forty to fifty dollar price range. Well, another nice gentleman, Kenneth, overheard our shpiel and came over and handed me a fifty dollar bill saying, " this should help!" Wow we were shocked, then he came back and took it back and replaced it with a hundred! He insisted, and we thanked him graciously. That meant a real nice room was paid for, and I got to shower! It ended up crazy storming outside, so I felt very blessed to be inside. The generouaity the whole day was incredible.
