Well, it was another interesting day of driving. We are presently in the booming town of Mound City, MO. We really have done poor timing on our motels. Both nights it has ended up either we drive late into the night or stop in a podunk town because there is nothing for MILES ahead. We have lucked out at having clean rooms at least! Tonight we had a great pool all to ourselves and had pizza delivered, so that was a treat.
Interesting things we saw today:
1 - a biker wearing a skeleton mask
2 - a woman passenger on the back of a bike clutching her purse to her side - in the middle of NO WHERE
3 - some severely strung out people at a gas station - with bruises from shooting up on their arms - this one still makes me a little nauseous, it was SO sad - I pray God delivers them from their pain and demons
4 - The Missouri River, which begins about 20 miles from our house - all the way down here now
5 - A woman passenger on the back of a bike going 75 mph reading a book
Questions we asked:
1 - Me to Reagan, "would you want to ride behind your man or would you want your own bike"
answer: there is good and bad both ways.
2 - Reag to me, "how come the woman is always riding behind the man? Does the man never just want to ride? Is she just decoration?"
3 - Lizzie - "how much longer?" X 4000
It was a good day.
