Day 97

Owen and Ky (and Owen’s Harley)

July 1st, 2010

Thanks to Paul for arranging my stay with Owen, and thanks to Owen for being such a great host! After a really hot and humid day, I couldn't have asked for anything more: cold drinks, shower and laundry, great food cooked on the grill, and a really sweet little dog occasionally coming over to say hi.

    Thanks owen. Thanks Paul, for doing your share of kindness for our wandering brother. Matt…1302 miles to the coast of Oregon. If you hitch a ride…that is 21 hours straight. If you walk the rest..well hours will be days – but those days will be priceless.
