Day 89


June 23rd, 2010

An extremely kind and giving woman, she invited me in without hesitation, gave me a bed for the night, and made sure my belly was full of homecooked food, both during my stay and well into the future.

    I’ve been following this blog for about a month now. It makes me happy to see that great and caring people like Debra or any of the other families you have stayed with are out there and are willing to help you out. Keep on trucking! Thanks for the great pics and letting us know that there are still friendly people around.
