I set up my tent in their yard during a lull in the rain, and dove in just as it started pouring again. I got to visit with Bill and Mary later in the evening when things cleared up for a while. They let me take a much needed shower and sent me off with a bag of food for the road. Mary also offered to drive me to Ohio so I could skip the rest of the PA hills, but I sadly had to decline.
Would kind of defeat the purpose. ;-)
Your mom especially thanks William and Mary for that shower!
Dear Mom…I was only too happy to help out any way I could but I’m am concerned with the junk food he’s being offered…Hope someone along the way will offer-up some veggies or fruit!
Mary, you’re a woman after my own heart.
This is wonderful, almost makes me want to say goodbye to a 31+ year career and hit the road while I still can.
I am really, really enjoying reading this…*This* being that there are still kind hearted people out there that lovingly reach out to help you no questions asked….well, you know what I mean. Thank you for this- for the pictures and writing, and helping me restore my faith in human kind.
Walk on, walk hard, walk safe!
Bill and Mary are good people, and must have respect for adventure. I’m so glad people like them exist, instead of a bunch of people looking down their noses all the time…
