Day 32- Motivating the Beat

Day 32- Motivating the Beat

 

Friends,
We were so excited for a restaurant after a 27 mile day and many days of not swing any that our morning was motivated by food. Our appetites got the best of our budget when we spent 50 dollars at Applebees. At least we wouldn't be grocery shopping on a full stomach because I don't think our backs could handle it. We were beat and my shin splints were really taxing.
We were pushing toward a short day and an early camp spot when we came across carol who stopped to talk and ended up walking a while with us because she locked her keys in her car. After we left our walking friend about a half mile down the road we were invited into an accountants office for water.
His secretary lead us back to what we thought was water but was actually Ray Froy's Office. He asked us how we had arrived where we were and we told him we were just following directions. Ray wanted us to be more specific asking how we found ourselves in his office. We told him we just wanted some water. Being a biker himself, he felt the need to help us out. Before we knew what hit us our hands were full with Gatorade, Clif Bar, Protein Bar, Shot Bloks, and carb and protein gel shots. Furthermore he called me back in after filling my water bottle to give me some cash for McDonalds and 4 fruit cocktails.
We did set up camp early, but with a powerful day in mind for Day 33. As always we found a great camp spot, todays was next to a stream (I got to carry Kira across, big smile).
A big thanks to all who support us,
Levi

P.s. We found these great painted trains and this one was my favorite.
